An international bestseller that recalls the quiet power of John Williams's Stoner and Marilynne Robinson's Lila
Andreas Egger knows every path and peak of his mountain valley, the source of his sustenance, his livelihood--his home.
Set in the mid-twentieth century and told with beauty and tenderness, Robert Seethaler's A Whole Life is a story of man's relationship with an ancient landscape, of the value of solitude, of the arrival of the modern world, and above all, of the moments, great and small, that make us who we are.
Robert Seethaler was born in Vienna in 1966 and is the author of four previous novels. He also works as an actor, most recently in Paolo Sorrentino's La Grande Bellezza. He lives in Berlin.
Charlotte Collins is currently translating Robert Seethaler's The Tobacconist and cotranslating Nino Haratischwili's The Eighth Life. She is the coeditor of more than one hundred bilingual novels for young adults and has written two bilingual novels and three radio plays. She lives in London.
