Mephisto by Klaus Mann ( Book )
136 editions published between 1936 and 2008 in 19 languages and held by 1,102 libraries worldwide
"Hendrik Hofgen is a man obsessed with becoming a famous actor. When the Nazis come to power in Germany, he willingly renounces his Communist past and deserts his wife and mistress in order to keep on performing. His diabolical performance as Mephistopheles in Faust proves to be the stepping-stone he yearned for: attracting the attention of Hermann Goring, it wins Hofgen an appointment as head of the State Theatre. The rewards - the respect of the public, a castle-like villa, a uplace in Berlin's highest circles - are beyond his wildest dreams. But the moral consequences of his betrayals begin to haunt him, turning his dreamworld into a nightmare." -- Book cover.
Amerika by Franz Kafka ( Book )
13 editions published between 1940 and 1976 in English and held by 877 libraries worldwide
Kafka's first and funniest novel, Amerika tells the story of the young immigrant Karl Rossmann who, after an embarrassing sexual misadventure, finds himself "packed off to America" by his parents. Expected to redeem himself in this magical land of opportunity, young Karl is swept up instead in a whirlwind of dizzying reversals, strange escapades, and picaresque adventures. Although Kafka never visited America, images of its vast landscape, dangers, and opportunities inspired this saga of the "golden land".
