A house in Istria by Richard Swartz( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Empty houses dot Eastern Europe. Once inhabited by families - Croatian or Italian, Slavic or Jewish, partisan or fascist, capitalist or communist - the houses stand empty now, washed by waves of chaos. Objects of legal suits, objects of desire, these houses can bewitch the unwary. One such empty house in Istria (the mountainous peninsula, formerly of Yugoslavia, on the Adriatic) becomes the obsesssional focus of Richard Swartz's quirky and original first novel. A House in Istria takes place over just seven blazing hot days and is narrated by the obsessed man's wife. He is from elsewhere; she is a native of Istria. He must have the house: he drags the poor wife into long burlesque conversations with neighbors and lawyers and owners. The out-of-control husband may not speak the language, but he doesn't hesitate to involve his wife in surreal scenes with nearly insane characters. She speaks the local dialect and Italian as well as whatever unspecified language she uses with her husband with equal ease. Since everything the husband knows (and everything the reader knows) must be channeled through her, we enter a world in which nothing is directly intelligible"--BOOK JACKET

Gibt es eine Liebe ohne Lügen und Verstellung? Richard Swartz erzählt sechs Fallgeschichten von erotischen Begegnungen zwischen Mann und Frau. Untreue ist die Regel, die Liebe ist ein fast entschwundener Traum. Seine Erzählungen sind subtil und unterhaltsam, aber mit beunruhigendem Ergebnis: Der grösste Liebesbeweis ist, den anderen nicht mehr als sich selbst zu betrügen

Democracy thrives on social dialogue and collective search for solution. As a forum for new ideas and impulses the Körber-Foundation seeks with its projects to involve citizens actively in social discourses. The private, non-profit-making foundation provides a forum for involvement in politics, education, science and international communication. Citizens who take part in competitions and round table discussions organized by the foundation benefit in many ways: they can pass on knowledge, identify problems and initiate activities. These kinds of stimulus form the Körber-Foundation's contribution to the everyday culture of democracy
