Memoirs of an anti-Semite by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The elusive narrator of this beautifully written, complex, and powerfully disconcerting novel is the scion of a decayed aristocratic family from the farther reaches of the defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire. In five psychologically fraught episodes, he revisits his past, from adolescence to middle age, a period that coincides with the twentieth century's ugliest years. Central to each episode is what might be called the narrator's Jewish Question. He is no Nazi. To the contrary, he is apolitical, accommodating, cosmopolitan. He has Jewish friends and Jewish lovers, and their Jewishness is a matter of abiding fascination to him. His deepest and most defining relationship may even be the strange dance of attraction and repulsion that throughout his life he has conducted with this forbidden, desired, inescapable, imaginary Jewish other. And yet it is just this relationship that has blinded him to'and makes him complicit in'the terrible realities of his era. Lyrical, witty, satirical, and unblinking, Gregor von Rezzori's most controversial work is an intimate foray into the emotional underworld of modern European history
An ermine in Czernopol by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )

84 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set just after World War I, An Ermine in Czernopol centers on the tragicomic fate of Tildy, an erstwhile officer in the army of the now-defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire, determined to defend the virtue of his cheating wife at any cost. Rezzori surrounds Tildy with a host of fantastic characters, engaging us in a kaleidoscopic experience of a city where nothing is as it appears--a city of discordant voices, of wild ugliness and heartbreaking disappointment, in which, however, 'laughter was everywhere, part of the air we breathed, a crackling tension in the atmosphere, always ready to erupt in showers of sparks or discharge itself in thunderous peals.'"--Page 4 of cover

Maghrebinische Geschichten by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )

85 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregor von Rezzori, 1914 in Czernowitz / Bukowina geboren, wuchs in Rumänien und Österreich auf und lebte in der Toskana bis zu seinem Tode. Seine "Maghrebinischen Geschichten" oder die "Denkwürdigkeiten eines Antisemiten" gehören zu den bedeutenden Werken der europäischen Literatur. MAGHREBINISCHE GESCHICHTEN Gregor von Rezzori: "Ich berichte Ihnen hier von dem sehr großen und ruhmreichen Lande Maghrebinien. Es ist in keinem Atlas eingezeichnet. Manche behaupten, es liege im Südosten - oder gar: es sei schlechthin der Südosten damit gemeint. Aber was ist der Südosten, ich bitte Sie? Um in der verdorbenen Sprache des Westens zu reden: Ein höchst relativer Begriff im kopernikanischen Weltsystem." Den Kosmos Maghrebinien bevölkern verschmitzt schlaue, stolze, verschlagene und bevorzugt Knoblauch kauende mächtige und weniger mächtige Männer. Ebenso unnahbare Zirkassierinnen, ebenholzfarbige Nubierinnen und zarte, quittengelbe Mädchen aus Zipangu

Über dem Kliff : Erzählung by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cuando un joven aristócrata de las postrimerías del imperio austrohúngaro se enfrenta a un cisne feroz que asesina a todas las aves de sus dominios, lo hace para preservar su estatuto señorial ante los campesinos ¿y también para impresionar a la hermana que desata todo tipo de pasiones incestuosas? Con gran maestría, Rezzori hace confluir el paso a la edad adulta con el ocaso de una época cuya solemnidad se muestra ya ridícula, como si estuviera a la espera de que la historia llegara para arrasarla de una vez por todas. En el cuento que da título a este volumen encontramos a un tallador de esculturas de la Virgen que lleva una vida de ermitaño al borde de un vertiginoso acantilado. Con un tono narrativo que mezcla el relato policíaco con la angustia existencial que entraña la creación artística, y que combina lo erótico con lo grotesco, cierto humor negro con una sugerente atmósfera onírica, el escultor pasa sus días atormentándose con el recuerdo de una pintora brutalmente asesinada, y se debate entre sus vanos esfuerzos por encontrar al culpable del crimen o seguir manteniendo sus discusiones mentales con la difunta, a quien intenta convencer, incluso más allá de la tumba, del valor artístico de sus tallas. En la historia que cierra el libro, el hijo de un militar y una reputada diseñadora italiana, acostumbrado al lujo y a la disipación, y que vive bajo el ala materna, conocerá a una joven radical de izquierdas que provocará un vuelco en su existencia, con consecuencias imprevistas. Estos cuentos pueden leerse como distintas señales de autodesprecio de sociedades e individuos que se sienten en falta frente a su propio destino y que inevitablemente se sumen en un agujero más profundo conforme buscan la salida. Con su escritura elegante y precisa, Rezzori hace estallar frente a nuestros ojos mundos enteros que de pronto se tornan antiguos, dejando a sus lectores la tarea de recoger los hermosos fragmentos que consignan el tránsito entre épocas." -- Cubierta
