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.

Editorial Reviews

“Full of indelible images and sparkling prose, Charlotte Collins’ translation is a true feat.” National Translater Award Committee
“A compact work of grace and beauty.” Wall Street Journal
A Whole Life is a provocatively ambitious title for this spare, novella-length work…Flecked with profundity [and] dark humor.” New York Times
“Seethaler’s understated tale is a reminder that joy can be found in daily toils and simple pleasures.” Booklist
