The emperor's tomb by Joseph Roth( Book )

294 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 1,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Emperor's Tomb is a nostalgic, haunting elegy for the end of youth and the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A continuation of the saga of the von Trotta family from The Radetzky March, it is both a powerful and moving look at a decaying society and its journey through the War and its devastating aftermath, and the story of the erosion of one man's desperate faith in the virtues of a simple life
The tale of the 1002nd night by Joseph Roth( Book )

131 editions published between 1937 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vienna of the late nineteenth century, with its contrasting images of pomp and profound melancholy, provides the backdrop for Joseph Roth's final novel, which he completed in exile, a few years before his tragic death in 1939. The Tale of the 1002nd Night is a brilliant, allegorical tale of seduction and personal and societal ruin, set amidst exquisite, wistful descriptions of a waning aristocratic age, and provides an essential link to our understanding of Roth's extraordinary fictive powers
Hiob : Roman eines einfachen Mannes by Joseph Roth( Book )

228 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,072 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 )

79 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 1,014 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

A powerful fable set in the early days of the Russian Revolution, Tarabas is the story of a Russian peasant who learns in his youth from a gypsy that it is his destiny to be both a murderer and saint. It is Roth's special gift that, in Tarabas's fulfillment of his tragic destiny, the larger movements of history find their perfect expression in the fate of one man
Hotel Savoy ; Fallmerayer the stationmaster ; The bust of the emperor by Joseph Roth( Book )

183 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 19 languages and held by 664 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."--Jacket
The hundred days by Joseph Roth( Book )

44 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 657 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" --
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 467 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

45 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The antichrist by Joseph Roth( Book )

36 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 334 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
