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

28 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 861 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 his relationship that has blinded him to and makes him complicit inthe terrible realities 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

Aristides Subicz, guionista de cine, vividor, dandy y memorioso centroeuropeo con aspiraciones de convertirse en escritor, recibe de un afamado agente literario el encargo de contar la sinopsis de su largamente planeada novela en tres frases". Diecinueve años ha estado Subicz acumulando material para esa obra que, en sus ínfulas, ha de convertirse en la obra maestra de la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Un caudal de historias que sólo tienen como fin el de ser contadas para crear el collage inextricable de una identidad literaria que únicamente es factible mediante el asesinato de cada uno de nuestros álter egos

An ermine in Czernopol by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 260 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 )

94 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 231 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
