A tomb for Boris Davidovich : a novel by Danilo Kiš( Book )

149 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed of seven dark tales, A Tomb for Boris Davidovich presents variations on the theme of political and social self-destruction throughout Eastern Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. The characters in these stories are caught in a world of political hypocrisy, which ultimately leads to death, their common fate." "Although the stories Kis tells are based on historical events, the beauty and precision of his prose elevates these ostensibly "true" stories into works of literary art that transcend the politics of their time."--Jacket
Garden, ashes by Danilo Kiš( Book )

95 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Garden, Ashes is the account of Andi Scham's childhood during World War II, as his Jewish family traverses Eastern Europe to escape persecution. As the family moves from house to house the novel focuses on Andi's relationship with his father. He recounts the endless hours his father poured into the creation of the all-inclusive third edition of the Bus, Ship, Rail, and Air Travel Guide, the bizarre sermons he delivered to his befuddled family, and his eventual disappearance and assumed death at Auschwitz. Rather than dwelling on the apocalyptic events fueling this family's story, Kis focuses on specific details of life during this period, constructing a personal account of a future artist growing up under the shadow of the Nazis in a world capable of containing a person as unique as his father."--Jacket
