" ... Roth's essays record the violent social and political paroxysms that threatened to undo the precarious democracy that was the Weimar Republic."--Dust jacket
Hiob : Roman eines einfachen Mannes by Joseph Roth ( Book )
177 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hiob" war Roths erster durchschlagender Erfolg als Autor - und bildet zusammen mit dem ein Jahr später erschienenen "Radetzkymarsch" auch den künstlerischen Höhepunkt seines Schaffens: Der kleine Lehrer Mendel Singer erfährt großes Leid, wendet sich gegen seinen Gott und findet erst in Amerika am Ende seines Lebens nach der wundersamen Wiedervereinigung mit seinem totgeglaubten Sohn wieder zurück zu seinem Glauben. Nicht nur stellt der "Roman eines einfachen Mannes", so der Untertitel, dabei ein exemplarisches Schicksal dar, sondern ist gleichzeitig ein Denkmal für die vernichtete Kultur des ostjüdischen Shtetls. Der Text folgt der Buchausgabe von 1930. Nachwort und ein vollständig neuer Kommentar geben Hilfen zum Verständnis besonders des jüdischen Hintergrundes

The wandering Jews by Joseph Roth ( Book )
9 editions published between 1976 and 2001 in English and German and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By the mid-1930s, as anti-Semitism crested and Roth fled Germany for what he thought were safer climes in Paris, he became increasingly desperate and hobbled by alcoholism. He had tremendous difficulties securing a German publisher, and his powerful 1937 preface, written for what he hoped would be the second edition of The Wandering Jews and included here, was never published in his lifetime."--BOOK JACKET

Hotel Savoy ; Fallmerayer the stationmaster ; The bust of the emperor by Joseph Roth ( Book )
167 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Still bearing scars from the gulag, a freed POW wanders across Russia to an industrial town in Eastern Europe. In its massive Hotel Savoy, he meets a surreal case of characters - the dancer Stasia, a former factory owner obsessed with winning the lottery, and a host of cigar-puffing plutocrats and Slav revolutionaries - waiting in vain for something to happen: the return from America of a tycoon named Bloomfield. Like Europe itself in 1932, the hotel is the stage upon which characters follow fate to its tragic destination."--BOOK JACKET

Report from a Parisian paradise : essays from France, 1925-1939 by Joseph Roth ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Joseph Roth, the greatest newspaper correspondent of his age, left the splintering Weimar Republic for France in 1925 and produced, until his death in 1939, some of the finest writing of his career. Collected here for the first time, Roth's essays form an unrivaled portrait of France in the late 1920s and 1930s - a society at a twentieth-century crossing point - resolute in its desire to preserve a past that was already crumbling while at the same time drawn to the seductive rhythms of urban life. Roth describes a world where the center could not hold - a portrait of a country unknowingly barreling toward social collapse and political anarchy."--Jacket

The antichrist by Joseph Roth ( Book )
24 editions published between 1934 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Long out of print in English, this dizzying hybrid of novel, essay, and polemic has less to do with religion than with what Roth sees as the disintegrating moral fabric of the modern world Written while Roth was in exile from Germany and his native Austria following the rise of Nazism, this work was composed in cafés across free Europe after all his works in German went up in flames. Such events no doubt influence the apocalytic tones of The Antichrist's protaganist, J.R., a journalist hired by an inscrutable media mogul hellbent on exposing evidence of the Antichrist throughout the world. This mission leads J.R. to authoritarian political regimes such as Red Earth (the Soviet Union) but also other poisonous terrains like The Land of Shadows (Hollywood)—it becomes all too clear that it is Roth's mission to chart the whole of civilization's slide into moral and political chaos. But herein lies the extraordinary strength and appeal of this work, as Roth is powerfully and even hilariously prescient. Mixing the diatribe with his trademark sardonic wit, he miraculously predicts the advent of the Holocaust, globalization, multimedia—even the paparazzi. Combining beautiful but savage writing with visual imagery out of a Coen Brothers movie, this is an invaluable addition to the Roth canon in English

Das Spinnennetz. Roman by Joseph Roth ( Book )
89 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theodor wuchs im Hause seines Vaters heran, des Bahnzollrevisors und gewesenen Wachtmeisters Wilhelm Lohse. Der kleine Theodor war ein blonder, strebsamer und gesitteter Knabe. Er hatte die Bedeutung, die er später erhielt, sehnsüchtig erhofft, aber niemals an sie zu glauben gewagt. Man kann sagen: er übertraf die Erwartungen, die er niemals auf sich gesetzt hatte. Der alte Lohse erlebte die Grösse seines Sohnes nicht mehr. Dem Bahnzollrevisor war nur vergönnt gewesen, Theodor in der Uniform eines Reserveleutnants zu schauen. Mehr hatte sich der Alte niemals gewünscht. Er starb im vierten Jahre des grossen Krieges, und den letzten Augenblick seines Lebens verherrlichte der Gedanke, dass hinter dem Sarge der Leutnant Theodor Lohse schreiten würde
