Nomad's hotel : travels in time and space by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

42 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A whimsical, hilarious, heartbreaking tour of the world-a book of immense range and depth, the record of a world-class traveller's many discoveries and insights Since making his first voyage as a sailor-to earn his passage from his native Holland to South America-Cees Nooteboom has been captivated by foreign countries and cultures and has never stopped travelling. Now a selection of his most enjoyable travel pieces are gathered together in this wide-ranging collection, informed throughout by the author's humanity and humour. From exotic places like Isfahan, the Gambia and Mali to more familiar locales such as Australia and Zurich, Nooteboom shares his view of the world, showing us the strangeness in places we thought we knew and the familiarity of places most of us will probably never see for ourselves. His phenomenal gifts as an observer and the wealth of his reading and learning make him an authoritative and delightful companion. Beyond the places he visits, he also meditates, as every traveller has, on the ideal hotel.: a nomad's hotel for a global nomad. With a new introduction from fellow world-class traveller and writer extraordinaire, Alberto Manguel
The foxes come at night by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

31 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the cities and islands of the Mediterranean, and linked thematically, the eight stories in The Foxes Come At Night read more like a novel, a meditation on memory, life and death. Their protagonists collect and reconstruct fragments of lives lived intensely, and now lost, crystallized in memory or in the detail of a photograph. In 'Paula', the narrator evokes the mysterious, brief life of a woman he once loved; in 'Paula II', the same woman is aware of the man thinking of her. No longer a body, she is slowly fading into the distance, remembering the time they spent together, and his fear of the black night when the foxes appear. And yet the tone of these stories is far from pessimistic: it seems that death is nothing to be afraid of. Nooteboom is a superb stylist who observes the world with a combination of melancholy and astonishment. These stories are textured with humour, pathos and vast knowledge, the hallmarks of this outstanding and highly respected European writer

Brieven aan Poseidon by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in Dutch and English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At once playful and poignant, beautiful and bizarre, this masterpiece uses the minutiae of everyday life to illuminate the broadest questions of human existence, all couched in the glittering prose of one of Europe's outstanding stylists. The Roman emperor Caligula famously called off an invasion of Britain and instead ordered his legions into the surf to attack the god of the sea. Cees Nooteboom is more civil. As autumn falls each year he writes Poseidon a letter requesting permission to return to his home in Minorca the following spring. Of course, it would be discourteous if the letters were no more than a series of demands. So Cees seeks the wisdom of the trident-wielding deity, and takes the opportunity to keep him up to speed on his own musings"--Publisher's description
Lluvia roja by Jesús Goytortúa( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De wolken van vanochtend zijn overgedreven. De ezel van mijn buurman balkt zoals ezels al duizenden jaren balken. De regen die mij op de gedachte bracht dat alles met van alles is verbonden is niet gekomen. In plaats daarvan heb ik aan Gilberte Cahen gedacht, aan een pijp met kif, aan de storm bij Kaap Hoorn, aan Homerus en mijn oude gymnasium, aan meisjes die voor je opstaan in de tram en vrienden die er niet meer zijn, aan de plaats die we met onze herinneringen, zoals Proust zegt, innemen in de tijd, een plaats die zoveel groter is dan die we innemen in de ruimte. Je moet er alleen voor geleefd hebben, en daarmee nog niet ophouden. Soms is een schrijver als een tuinier, tevreden zorgend voor zijn familie in de tuin, de cypres, de euforbia, de rode en de roze hibiscus, de paarse bougainvillea, al die verschillende planten die zich daar gedurende de jaren geworteld hebben. De herinnering kun je je vervolgens voorstellen als zo'n typische tuin in het zuiden: bezocht door schuwe dieren, met stenen en onkruid doortrokken en door uitdroging bedreigt. Maar dan: een druppel water, het juiste woord en zij bloeit weer als nooit tevoren. Ik heb er geen, beweert Cees Nooteboom graag, als het om zijn herinnering gaat. Het volgende moment ziet men hem weer wieden, harken, begieten, verzorgen, ongedierte bestrijden en horen we hem zeggen dat wie geen verleden heeft 'een verleden zou moeten verzinnen om er een te hebben'. Rode regen toont Nooteboom aan het werk in de tuin van zijn herinnering

Brasilia-Chandigarh : living with modernity by Iwan Baan( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1960, Braslia was celebrated as the realization of an urban-planning vision based on designs by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer. At the same time, the city of Chandīgarh, rationally laid out in sectors was taking shape according to plans by Le Corbusier. The 'test-tube' city arose as an export of modernity from a Western planning euphoria that reveals utopian traits. Living with Modernity examines how modernism has been expropriated in the two cities. Commonalites and differences are identified while images of everyday urban life are showcased in photographs by photographer Iwan Baan."
