Half the kingdom by Lore Groszmann Segal( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A brilliant dark comedy about life, death and growing old in America told with Segal's characteristic humor, crystalline style and deadpan delivery--and her hilarious sense of the absurd. Half the Kingdom is a brilliant dark comedy about life, death and growing old in post-9/11 America--a place where terrorist paranoia and end-of-the-world hysteria masks deeper fears about mortality; a place where the broken medical system leads one character to quip, "Kafka wrote slice-of-life fiction." Characters from Segal's earlier novels are part of the cast whose lives intersect at Manhattan's Cedars of Lebanon emergency room--where doctors have noticed a marked up-tick in Alzheimer victims. People who seemed perfectly lucid just a day earlier exhibit signs of advanced dementia. Is it just normal aging or a coincidence? Is it an epidemic, or a secret terrorist plot? As profoundly moving as Joan Didion's latest non-fiction, and as thoughtful and charming as Diana Athill, Segal's crystalline writing and deep appreciation of the absurd make this most tragic and hilarious novel a joy for all to read"--

Gallows songs by Christian Morgenstern( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christian Morgenstern (1871-1914) was a German poet, theosophist, and translator whose nonsense poems have been among the best-known and best-loved works in Germany throughout this century. Often compared to the drolleries of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, Morgenstern's poems are whimsical yet haunting, a rare blend of humor and odd metaphysical intimations." "Morgenstern wrote the first of his Golgenlieder after he and some friends had returned from a carefree outing past Gallows Hill near Potsdam and formed a "fraternal order of the gallows." His collection, published in Germany between 1905 and 1916, eventually comprised 286 poems. This new edition is a bilingual selection of some 90 poems from the original work. The reader is introduced to inventions like the clock that moves slowly or quickly as its sympathy for the clock watcher dictates; the luncheon newspaper that, when read, also satisfies one's hunger, the mail that is sent from a vacation retreat on the antlers or tails of bucks." "To translate Morgenstern is a daunting task, and Walter Arndt has succeeded brilliantly, following the poet's verbal acrobatics, his phonetic, semantic, and syntactic play with words and clauses, and, where possible, his trick of stripping discourse of conventions and pretensions by a bizarre literal interpretation of conventional phrases and metaphors. His translation of Morgenstern's poems of nonsense, or "supersense," will be treasured by scholars of the German lyric and by children of all ages."--Jacket
Lucinella : a novel by Lore Groszmann Segal( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intelligence turns me on. Lore Segal's tour de force look at the New York literary scene was a hit when it was first released in the 1970s, winning the praise of the literary elite. John Garnder called it "magical." William Gass said it was "witty, elegant, beautiful." Stanley Elkin called it "a shamelessly wonderful novel, so flawless one feels civilized reading it." It's been a cult classic ever since, and appears here in its full, original text, as fresh as ever: the story of the whimsical New York poet Lucinella and her adventures among the literati. It starts at Yaddo writers colony, where life is idyllic, meals are served to you in your rooms, and cocktails are ready at day's end and still the writers complain and compete. Then it moves back to New York City, where the pampered once again face reality, and wonder: Will a different husband or the right publisher or the perfect filing system put life in order' Lucinella and her circle feel lacking and keep looking, busily going to parties and watching one another 's lives closely for signs of happiness, love and despair. Segal depicts it all with a perfect blend of love and malice. And at the center is Lucinella herself, so full of humanity and frailty that these divertissements do her to death. "Here," as Cynthia Ozick says, "is the enchanted microcosm, the laughter of mortality." The Contemporary Art of the Novella series is designed to highlight work by major authors from around the world. In most instances, as with Imre Kertesz, it showcases work never before published; in others, books are reprised that should never have gone out of print. It is intended that the series feature many well-known authors and some exciting new discoveries. And as with the original series, The Art of the Novella, each book is a beautifully packaged and inexpensive volume meant to celebrate the form and its practitioners
