The wandering Jews by Joseph Roth( Book )
71 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 1,012 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

"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 472 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 )
31 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 468 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 expos
