The wandering Jews by Joseph Roth( Book )

35 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 826 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."--Jacket

Report from a Parisian paradise : essays from France, 1925-1939 by Joseph Roth( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and German and held by 596 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
Hotel Savoy ; Fallmerayer the stationmaster ; The bust of the emperor by Joseph Roth( Book )

"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

The hundred days by Joseph Roth( Book )

29 editions published between 1935 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Napoleon's return to the throne in Paris, as imagined by the incomparable Joseph Roth. Set during the infamous period between Napoleon's escape from Elba and his second defeat and recapture at Waterloo, The Hundred Days describes the great Emperor's last shot at glory and his final transformation from a godlike ruler into an ordinary, humble man. Roth frames the novel through the perspectives of Napoleon himself as well as his devoted Corsican laundress Angelina, to show the demise of their seemingly intertwined fates. The Hundred Days is enriched with Roth's signature lyrical elegance and haunting atmospheric details"--
The legend of the holy drinker by Joseph Roth( Book )

80 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, one of the most haunting things that Roth ever composed, was published in 1939, the year the author died. Like Andreas, the hero of the story, Roth drank himself to death in Paris, but this is not an autobiographical confession. It is a secular miracle-tale, in which the vagrant Andreas, after living under bridges, has a series of lucky breaks that lift him briefly onto a different plane of existence. The novella is extraordinarily compressed, dry-eyed and witty, despite its melancholic subject-matter."--Publisher's description

Der Antichrist by Joseph Roth( Book )

27 editions published between 1934 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the rest of Joseph Roth's oeuvre has been made available to the English-speaking world in recent years, this new translation by Richard Panchyk? a distant relative of Roth? will redress the historical absence of such a key, neglected work in the Roth canon. Roth penned and published The Antichrist during the first years of his exile from his homeland, and an English translation was published in London, in 1935 by William Heinemann. The Antichrist's singularity amongst Joseph Roth's work stems both from the urgency that courses through its prose and the book's hybrid form, which s
Perlefter : the story of a bourgeois by Joseph Roth( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available for the first time in English, this important addition to the Roth canon is rich in irony and exemplary of Roth's keen powers of social and political observation. A novel fragment that was discovered among Joseph Roth's papers decades after his death, this book chronicles the life and times of Alexander Perlefter, the well-to-do Austrian urbanite with whom his relative, a small-town narrator, Naphthali Kroj, has come to live after becoming orphaned. The colorful cast of characters includes Perlefter's four children: foolish Alfred, with his predilection for sleeping with servant girls and widows and boasting of the venereal diseases he contracts; the hapless Karoline, whose interest in math and physics and employment at a scientific institute seem to repel serious suitors; the flamboyant Julie, a sweet, pale, and anemic girl who likes any man who is inclined toward marriage; and the beautiful and flighty Margarete, besotted with a professor of history. Written circa 1928-30, Perlefter represents Joseph Roth at the very peak of his literary powersit was penned just after the publication of The Silent Prophet and just before his masterpieces Job and The Radetzky March
