Introducing Kafka by David Zane Mairowitz ( Book )
20 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Franz Kafka was described as living behind a 'glass wall'. Writing bizarre fantasy, tainted with hilarity and self-abasement, he brought to this an almost unbearably-expanded consciousness, creating a unique literary language in which to hide.

Albert Camus, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, always refused the existentialist label with which he is usually associated. Introducing Camus portrays a man who was not only in the tradition of the great French humanists, but an important Resistance fighter during World War II, and also a great sensualist who created a personal and literary myth out of sun, sea, sex, football and theatre - his response to the "absurdity" of life

Hunted by police and his own conscience, Raskolnikov is driven toward confession.

"The protagonist, known only as K., arrives in a mountain village buried under deep snows in the middle of winter, dominated by a looming castle above it, shrouded in mist. Attempting to gain contact with the inhabitants of the castle, the officials who run the bureaucracy governing the village, K. repeatedly finds himself misunderstanding and transgressing the multitude of confusing and contradictory rules and regulations that dictate the daily life of the villagers. Kafka's atmospheric and brooding tale of extreme bureaucracy explores themes of solitude, isolation, loss, and companionship" -- from publisher's web site

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Raskolnikov commits murder. He then must deal both with the police, and his own guilty conscience. Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination
