The brother by Rein Raud( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Brother opens opens with a mysterious stranger arriving in a small town controlled by a group of men--men who recently cheated the stranger's supposed sister out of her inheritance and mother's estate. Resigned to giving up on her dreams and ambitions, Laila took this swindling in stride, something that Brother won't stand for. Soon after his arrival, fortunes change dramatically, enraging this group of powerful men, motivating them to get their revenge on Brother. Meanwhile, a rat-faced paralegal makes it his mission to discover Brother's true identity ... The first novel of Rein Raud's to appear in English, The Brother is, in Raud's own words, a spaghetti western told in poetic prose, simultaneously paying tribute to both Clint Eastwood and Alessandro Baricco. With its well-drawn characters and quick moving plot, it takes on more mythic aspects, lightly touching on philosophical ideas of identity and the ruthless way the world is divided into winners and losers"--
The reconstruction by Rein Raud( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the apparently religiously inspired suicide of his daughter and her friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he cannot do it any longer. He has to travel all over Estonia and even to France to talk to those who might remember anything relevant. Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, others refuse to talk. And little by little, a bigger and quite unexpected picture starts to emerge. From the late 1970s through 2011, the book spans the lives of two generations, the changes in the world at large and the Estonian society in particular, the transition from a world of rights and wrongs to a world where most things are neither, but the yearning for absolute truths still won't go away."--

Burning cities by Kai Aareleid( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of the Peter Owen World Series: Baltics'This story glows somewhere on the fringes of my consciousness, so close I can almost touch it.'Opening up about her family history, Tiina revisits the first two decades of her life following the Second World War, in Tartu, Estonia. The city, destroyed by Nazi invasion then rebuilt and re-mapped by the Soviets, is home to many secrets, and little Tiina knows them all, even if she does not know their import. The adult world that makes up Communist society, is one of cryptic conversations, undiagnosed dread and heavy drinking. From the death of Stalin to the gradual separation of her parents, Tiina, as a young girl, experiences both domestic and great events from the periphery, and is, therefore, powerless to prevent the defining tragedy in her life - a suicide in the family.Translated for the first time into English, Burning Cities is an intimate portrayal of life under Soviet Communism and an absorbing family drama told with poetic precision.Translated from the Estonian by Adam Cullen
The cavemen chronicle : a novel by Mihkel Mutt( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel paints a fascinating portrait of bohemian culture in Estonia in the last quarter of the twentieth century. The "cavemen" in question are the regulars at the underground (both literally and figuratively) bar called "The Cave," including artists, musicians, writers, and philosophers, who escape the dreary Soviet reality "above ground" with vodka and high-minded discussion in their secret hideaway. The arrival of national independence upsets the balance of these dissidents' lifestyle, and the narrator recounts how each individual adapts to their newfound freedom. An illuminating and thrilling look into life on the fringes of Soviet culture, both pre- and post-perestroika, as well as a meditation on what it means to be Estonian"--

Estonians' liberation way by Tiit Made( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Estonians' Liberation Way summarizes chronologically and step-by-step the historic years, in which Estonian independence was restored and the country liberated from Soviet occupation. Estonians managed to skillfully manipulate the power struggle going on between the Kremlin's communist dictators, steer through the treacherous reefs set up by the occupying power, and ignore its threats. By exploiting the breakup of the Soviet empire, Estonians were able to achieve freedom, independence, and the right to self-determination for the second time in a century. Bloodless revenge was exacted from the aggressive conqueror beyond the eastern border for the half a century of colonization and humiliation it had endured."

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Apothecary Melchior' series plunges the reader into fifteenth-century Tallinn when Estonia is at the edge of Christian lands and the last foothold before the East: a town of foreign merchants and engineers, dominated by the mighty castle of Toompea and the construction of St Olaf's Church, soon to become the tallest building in the world. Apothecary Melchior is a divisive figure in the town: respected for his arcane knowledge and scientific curiosity but also slightly feared for his mystical witchdoctor aura. When a mysterious murder occurs in the castle, Melchior is called in to help find the killer and reveals a talent for detection
