The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick 2

  When I finished reading the novella “The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick,” I wasn’t sure how to approach this work by Peter Handke. Did I like this book or not? Should I have perhaps started with one of his more recent works, instead of one of his earliest…

I reminisced about my time in elementary, high school (and even college, why not), thinking about the people I met during my schooling.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
