The Afternoon of a Writer by Peter Handke

"The Afternoon of a Writer" is a contemplative exploration of a day in the life of a solitary writer who, after a successful morning of writing, decides to take a walk through an unnamed European city. As he strolls, he grapples with feelings of alienation and existential dread, questioning his purpose and the worth of his work. The book delves into the writer's inner struggles, his observations of the world around him, and his reflections on the act of writing itself.
