The wandering Jews by Joseph Roth( Book )

41 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roth examined the concept of Jewish identity years before the onset of National Socialism and looked ahead with apprehension to Germany's future. Emotionally ravaged by the whirlwind events of Weimar Germany, he dared to write about the historical schism between Eastern and Western Jews, warning of the false comforts of materialism and assimilation and urging his fellow Jews to embrace their heritage and the land of Palestine as a nascent Jewish homeland. As one of Berlin's most eminent journalists, he traveled throughout Europe and composed these essays with both an exigency and restrained contemplation that have earned him comparisons to his more celebrated contemporaries, Thomas Mann and Isaac Babel."

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

13 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and German and held by 576 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 hundred days by Joseph Roth( Book )

33 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 544 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"--
Hotel Savoy ; Fallmerayer the stationmaster ; The bust of the emperor by Joseph Roth( Book )

131 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 540 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
Der Antichrist by Joseph Roth( Book )

29 editions published between 1934 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 308 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

The colourful 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 Karolin
