Forest dark : a novel by Nicole Krauss( Book )

61 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 2,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jules Epstein, a man whose drive, avidity, and outsized personality have, for sixty-eight years, been a force to be reckoned with, is undergoing a metamorphosis. In the wake of his parents' deaths, his divorce from his wife of more than thirty years, and his retirement from the New York law firm where he was a partner, he has felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions, alarming his children and perplexing the executor of his estate. With the last of his wealth he travels to Israel, with a nebulous plan to do something to honor his parents. In Tel Aviv, he is sidetracked by a charismatic American rabbi planning a reunion for the descendants of King David who insists that Epstein is part of that storied dynastic line. He also meets the rabbi's beautiful daughter, who convinces Epstein to become involved in her own project--a film about the life of David that is being shot in the desert--with life-changing consequences. But Epstein isn't the only seeker embarking on a metaphysical journey that dissolves his sense of self, place, and history. Leaving her family in Brooklyn, a well-known young, well-known novelist arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton, where she has stayed every year since her birth. Troubled by writer's block and a failing marriage, she hopes that the hotel can unlock a dimension of reality--and her own perception of life--that has been closed off to her. But when she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can't turn down, she is drawn into a mystery that alters her life in ways she could never have imagined. Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a profound, mesmerizing novel of transformation and self-realization--of looking beyond all that is visible toward the infinite."--Jacket

"A man is found wandering the desert outside Las Vegas. The cards in his wallet identify him as Samson Greene, a Columbia University English professor last seen leaving campus eight days ago. Thirty-six years old, with a wife, Anna, and a dog, Frank. But Samson doesn't even recognize his own name, and by the time Anna has make her way across the country to pick him up, doctors have discovered a cherry-sized tumor in his brain; its removal eradicates the last twenty-four years of Samson's memories." "Samson and Anna return to New York together, where Samson struggles to connect with the woman he knows he is supposed to love, with his career, with his home, with his "life"." "Into these daily lives fraught with a peculiarly intimate tension comes a charismatic scientist who invites Samson to take part in a groundbreaking medical experiment in the Nevada desert. It doesn't take much to lure Samson away from his profound loneliness in the city, where he is stuck between missing the past life that surrounds him and yearning to enjoy the fresh start he's been given. But Anna is never far from his thoughts as he embarks on the journey that promises adventure and revelation but may mean the end of the old Samson Greene."--Jacket

Stalin is dead : stories and aphorisms on animals, poets and other earthly creatures by Rachel Sihor( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Stalin is Dead, ' Shihor offers a medley of aphorisms, flash fiction, and short stories, carving out a slice of the world in which Kafka would feel at home. The characters that inhabit this world - reckless she-goats, morose fish, somnambulistic theologians, poignant old ladies, dying dictators, and dead poets, to name just a few - have nothing in common save for the fact that they instruct us on the human condition. These edifying stories, with all their sadness and humor, are a writer's tour de force and a reader's delight
