The song of Bernadette by Franz Werfel( Book )

77 editions published between 1941 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the true story surrounding the miraculous visions of St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France in 1858. Author Franz Werfel, a highly respected anti-Nazi writer from Vienna, became a Jewish refugee who barely escaped death in 1940, and wrote this moving story to fulfill a promise he made to God. While hiding in the little village of Lourdes, Werfel felt the Nazi noose tightening, and realizing that he and his wife might well be caught and executed, he made a promise to God to write about the "song of Bernadette" that he had been inspired by during his clandestine stay in Lourdes. Though Werfel was Jewish, he was so deeply impressed by both Bernadette and the happenings at Lourdes, that his writing has a profound sense of Catholic understanding. For all its unsparing depiction of the poverty of the French Pyrenees, the pettiness of local officialdom, the skepticism and institutional-mindedness of local churchmen, The Song of Bernadette is shot through with a sense of the extraordinary that lies on the far side of the ordinary, revealing itself through the simplest things

"La récente remise au jour du destin de M. Crump qui avait tant fasciné Freud et Thomas Mann a ramené en pleine lumière l'œuvre de Lewisohn (1883-1956), qui fut trente ans avant Nabokov le dénonciateur le plus féroce de la bonne pensée américaine. Crime passionnel (1932 - traduit deux ans plus tard par Antonin Artaud et Bernard Steele), qui scandalisa la critique de l'époque, est sans doute son roman le plus ambitieux : un texte dont la modernité en tout cas, un long demi-siècle ayant passé, laisse sans voix. Lewisohn y retrace, avec une minutie qui ne nous épargne rien, le destin de quelques couples new-yorkais dans le vent - entre " Belle Epoque "et " Années Folles ". On est libéral et pourtant conformiste ; et surtout l'on passe son temps à mentir : aux autres bien sûr, mais d'abord à soi-même. Et l'on s'étonne à peine lorsque l'un de ces êtres trahis par l'air du temps, fatigué de tout ce faux-semblant, sort un revolver de sa poche et tue. Non pour punir l'infidélité de l'amour, mais pour permettre au désir d'aller enfin sans masque
