Grand hotel by Vicki Baum( Book )

326 editions published between 1929 and 2018 in 19 languages and held by 2,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A grand hotel in the center of 1920s Berlin serves as a microcosm of the modern world in Vicki Baum's celebrated novel, a Weimar-era bestseller that retains all its verve and luster today. Among the guests of the hotel is Dr. Otternschlag, a World War I veteran whose face has been sliced in half by a shell. Day after day he emerges to read the paper in the lobby, discreetly inquiring at the desk if the letter he's been awaiting for years has arrived. Then there is Grusinskaya, a great ballerina now fighting a losing battle not so much against age as against her fear of it, and Gaigern, a sleek professional thief, who may or may not be made for each other. Herr Preysing also checks in, the director of a family firm that isn't as flourishing as it appears, who would never imagine that Kringelein, his underling, a timorous petty clerk he's bullied for years, has also come to Berlin, determined to live at last now that he's received a medical death sentence. All these characters and more, with their secret fears and hopes, come together and come alive in the pages of Baum's delicious and disturbing masterpiece"--
Shanghai '37 by Vicki Baum( Book )

188 editions published between 1939 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originalmente titulada "Shanghai 1937", esta novela vio la luz de forma más o menos clandestina en 1939, el año en que los nazis quemaron tantos y tantos libros, entre ellos los de Vicki Baum, que era judía. Ya en 1929, la autora había anticipado en "Gran Hotel" la decadencia de la sociedad alemana en el período pre-nazi, la pérdida de valores oculta bajo un falso refinamiento. "Shanghai Hotel" es también una terrorífica premonición de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En su primera parte nos narra la peripecia vital de nueve personajes procedentes de todos los lugares del mundo, que no se conocen entre sí; en la segunda parte, todos ellos coinciden en la cosmopolita ciudad de Shanghai, alrededor del Shanghai Hotel, y allí es donde sus destinos se cruzarán y donde encontrarán la muerte, víctimas de una de las primeras bombas de la guerra chino-japonesa

Herstellende van een auto-ongeluk in het wijnstadje Lohwinckel ontmoet de frivole Berlijnse filmster Leore Lania de provinciaalse freule Hyacintia von Raitzhold (diepe stem, mannelijke gestalte met een geur van leer, tabak en aarde, rijkostuum, sigaar en pijp).

Hotel Berlin '43 by Vicki Baum( Book )

20 editions published between 1944 and 1966 in 5 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a Berlin luxury hotel, like its famous prototype still crowded with fascinating guests but drastically changed under a war-torn Nazi regime. Headquarters of the Gestapo, home of international parasites, Nazi officials, and the elite of Hitler's Reich, is a microcosm of the brutality and hysterical fear raging behind the steel walls."--Goodreads.com
