Bosnian chronicle by Ivo Andrić( Book )

"Set in the town of Travnik, Bosnian Chronicle presents the struggle for supremacy in a region that stubbornly refuses to submit to any outsider. The era is Napoleonic and the novel, both in its historical scope and psychological subtlety, Tolstoyan. In its portrayal of conflict and fierce ethnic loyalties, the story is also eerily relevant. Ottoman viziers, French consuls, and Austrian plenipotentiaries are consumed by an endless game of diplomacy and double-dealing: expansive and courtly face-to-face, brooding and scheming behind closed doors. As they have for centuries, the Bosnians themselves observe and endure the machinations of greater powers that vie, futilely, to absorb them. Ivo Andric's masterwork is imbued with the richness and complexity of a region that has brought so much tragedy to our century and known so little peace"--

Angel of gaiety : a novel by Joseph George Hitrec( Book )

2 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author's Son of the Moon won the Harper prize in 1948. This seems the chief claim to advance for this new novel of India and Anglo-Indians, with the half-caste problem at the heart of the conflict. There's a somewhat cynical undertone in the author's approach to his central characters, hucksters on the make, the chief a boor whose lifeblood is linked to his faith in his product and the two men who work for him and who cordially detest each other. Two absentee wives provide insignificant brakes on the amorous adventures of the chief and his Cockney agent, while the wife of the third man, an Anglo-Indian who feels herself vastly superior to the rest of them, successfully puts spokes in her husband's wheel. The tension is brought to high heat by the pursuit of love on the part of the chief, in the person of Stella, a half-caste, who is out for what she can get without giving. "--Kirkus
