    [An einem Tag wie diesem] E–pub Þ Peter Stamm At first I was reminded of the main character in Night Train to Lisbon whom I liked Can't give this one three stars because I went from feeling neutral about Andreas here to not liking him much by the end Setting and description are well done but I guess it's a matter of lacking European sensibility rather than a translation issue I feel Not interested in reading by this author

Everything would be much easier if you could see yourself as a victim he thought a victim of your childhood of fate of the people you had grown up among and finally too as victim of illness But in order to feel himself a victim he had to believe in the possibility of another better life Andreas believed in nothing but chance He loved the curious coincidences and repetitions that life threw up against all logic He loved the surprising patterns that came about in the sky or on a body of water or in the shade of a tree the continual tiny adjustments in the same overall context Nadia called in nihilism his own word for it was modestyThis is exactly how this whole book goes you think it s going to be a pitiful sad story filled with regret about a man who has never married or had a family never really been in a committed relationship or even had a deep friend facing a possible fatal diagnosis and yet and yet it s just not that sad and pitiful It always turns Andreas seems to find enough joy enough meaning even as he contemplates a world in which no one will miss him in or even remember him in twenty years He is not terribly likeable not particularly nice to the women he has relations with but at some level endearingly honest and vulnerable I kept wanting to not like Andreas or to find the book boring but it just totally hooked me in Once again I am a total sucker for a well developed sense of place thoughtful language and a well developed reflective character Stramm delivers all of this

This is just my second novel by Peter Stamm but he might become my favorite contemporary author writing in German His stories are unexceptional the characters are average people experiencing everyday occurences But there are cracks in the surface The ordinary settled life is an illusion Behind the curtain unrest and dissatisfaction broods On a day like this any day the cracks will burst Here Andreas gives up his position as a teacher sells his apartment and starts on a journey to come to terms with his past specifically with an unresolved early love when an unspecified growth is discovered in his lungHis unbound lifestyle contrasts with those of his so called friends and his brother settled with families and obligations Neither their nor Andreas life are drafted as desirable There s no ultimate solution to the ongoing search for happiness Most stopped to search or never searched at all Even when Andreas apparent dream comes true it s not the end but just another start There s a zen like uality to the resolution the way is the reward Don t stop on the wayThis is a book I can relate to from an author who seems to think about the same things as I do who wrote this book when he was about my age The perfect book at the right time for my personal situation
