    RUNAWAY HORSE 1978 is a novella about two former school friends both in their late forties who run into one another while on vacation on Lake Constance Helmut teaches philosophy at a prestigious institution and has two grown children He leads a rather boring and uneventful life alongside his wife Sabine but he is very happy about it Klaus is a journalist He is married to Helene a younger woman He is heathy liberated virile athletic drives sports cars And he looks twenty years younger than Helmut Klaus unlike Helmut remembers every moment of their youth marvelling at the young Helmut and digging out unpleasant memories Helmut seems very uncomfortable but is unable to shake off his friend's intrusive presence Tension builds up in the book between the static pensive Helmut and the ebullient Klaus until a near catastrophe brings the truth to light RUNAWAY HORSE is a fierce critiue of society It reads like a psychological thriller so you can't put it down The dialogues are outrageously funny and unbearably embarrassing at the same time This book was an instant bestseller it sold than a million copies in 40 years Yet it is not easy to find a copy of an English translation Martin Walser who must not be confused with Robert Walser seems to be a controversial writer and has become a persona non grata especially in the US so I guess that must be the reason this book is not receiving the appreciation I feel it deserves It is one of the 100 must read German books according to the DW list

    Helmut is a sexist jerkwaffle who won't do anything and lies about everything Klaus is a friend from his from way back and Helmut hates him Klaus is a sexist jerkwaffle who seeks thrills lies about everything and abuses his wifeThey should both have drownedAlso the prose is deliberately complicated the appropriate term would be geschwurbelt in a very unfun wayBecause no I don't need to read about two ugly old farts talking about sex and stuff Go to a brothel Walser

    This book is a great study of human nature A man who is lost in his own lack of self esteem and constantly has to ask his wife if she still loves him Another man who gets reminded of his short falling time after time Not everybody is what they want other people to see in them A lot of pain and cruel honesty on almost every page The only thing I did not like was the freuent sexualisation of almost everything Curious breasts thighs of waves trying to crush Could have done without that

    Great a German classic

    For a start Runaway Horse confronts us with the dichotomy between alleged childhood friends Helmut Halm and Klaus Buch meeting by coincidence on vacation after than 20 years The first chose to go with the flow became teacher conforms to societal expectations and leads life mostly in his mind and reading The second is the non conformist the adventurer Always seeking new challenges tasks and relations Boredom is deathThis is the surface Runaway Horse is not a Hesse book There's no yin and yang no plea for any specific lifestyle When boiled down to the essence the two lifes are mostly similar They consist of lies Helmut is happiest when nobody recognizes him for his true self when he can hide behind the conformist mask Klaus doesn't find satisfaction in his life either Behind the facade fear and suppression are lurking The two minor characters their women aren't much different They stay rather flat but their images of supporting housewife respectively unconventional lover are facades as wellThe name giving runaway horse surfaces once as a symbol for the gap between illusion and reality Klaus catches the horse The trick is not to confront it head on as it will shy away Instead approach it from the side Trick it Catch life not by the horns but sneakily from the sideThere's a short moment of truth when Klaus is deemed to be drowned on a sailing trip Helene Klaus' partner lifts the mask and reveals the truth of their life She has given up on her dreams for Klaus pretending to be enjoying what he urges her to do He's shying away from realising the emptiness in his life He's a manic character But the catharsis doesn't happen Klaus reappears the couples part and fall back to their delusional lifesWalser is not one for the uiet tones His characters are exaggerated the scenes are striking Lots of potential for interpretation but also attacks Maybe this is part of what makes Walser a controversial author in Germany Many pupil had to read this book in school Too early best read when you're middle aged and made enough experiences to discover how much reality differs from the images you're confronted with daily

    One of the best modern German novellas One of the best books to get into Walser's work

    I visited my parents this week and sort of ran out of something to read So I decided to read Martin Walser’s Bodensee novella Ein fliehendes Pferd for the #2016ClassicsChallenge The book is about a 40 something bourgeois couple vacationing on Lake Constance and meet a former school mate who's aggressively not bourgeois or so it seemsThe prose is good and there are a few passages of really good observations but overall I wasn't impressed I just didn't care about the characters I'm not that interested in inner workings of a depressed bourgeois misanthrope I've had my fair share of that myself The novella also feels dated in an odd way I would have guessed that it was written 50 not 35 years ago
