Good for Peter Handke! One of the few European intellectuals who dares to speak out against the trend.
As for Günther Grasse, I've always thought that his work was highly overrated. I've never been able to get through it. Nothing but self-worshipping, superficial, juvenile leftism, lacking imagination.
You don't have to like an author's politics to admire his writing, but Grasse is a second-rater.
You should be able to see right through Handke, Cicero. I mean, come on.
Günther Grasse is a pompous buffoon in love with himself.
