The cello player by Michael Krüger( Book )

35 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in 9 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The narrator of this tale of love and loss is a middle-aged German composer who writes serious avant-garde music, but makes a living writing theme music for television. When Judit, an ambitious young cello player from Budapest (whose mother was once the composer's lover and who may or may not be his daughter), shows up on his doorstep, he agrees to take her in while she studies at the conservatory in Munich. Judit's presence evokes memories of a far different time for the composer, when life was about art and his biggest concern was finding a room for an afternoon tryst. When our protagonists set out for the composer's house in southern France, where he will finish his opera and she will master her instrument, it gradually becomes clear that this young woman is playing more than the cello"--Publisher's description

Candida Höfer : a monograph by Candida Höfer( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and German and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Candida Hofer's relationship to architecture is fully in keeping with the New Objectivity tradition. Her photographs of public spaces are almost sober and ascetic in feel - the specific atmosphere is disturbed by neither visitors nor users, especially as she forgoes any spectacular staging of the locations. The emptiness is imbued with substance by a subtle attention to color, and the prevailing silence thus instilled with a metaphysical quality that gives voice to the objects - over and above the eloquence of the furnishings or the pathos of the architecture

Das Irrenhaus Roman by Michael Krüger( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Mann ist ein Glückspilz: Von der Tante einer Tante erbt er in bester Lage Münchens ein großes Mietshaus. Also hängt er seinen Job als Archivar an den Nagel, bricht alle Zelte ab und zieht in eine freie Wohnung seines neuen Hauses ein. Unter falschem Namen, versteht sich, immerhin will er dem Müßiggang frönen und sich nicht unnötig mit seinen Mietern herumschlagen. Da hat er die Rechnung ohne die illustre Nachbarschaft gemacht: vom unbeugsamen Derivatehändler und der notorisch einsamen Studienrätin bis zum Vorgänger in seiner Wohnung, ein Schriftsteller, der überall Spuren hinterlassen hat und immer noch sonderbare Post erhält. Kurzerhand beschließt der Mann, in die Haut des ominösen Autors zu schlüpfen. Er kopiert dessen Schrift, trägt dessen Gedichte vor, eignet sich das Verhalten eines echten Schriftstellers an und erkundet, wie sich dieses neue Leben anfühlt. Bis eines Tages eine Nichte desselben vor der Tür steht, und kurz darauf eine Frau, die behauptet, er habe ihre Werke plagiiert und gestohlen. Was tun? Aus dem Einsamen wird ein Verfolgter. Als die Schlinge sich immer stärker zuzieht, plant er seine Flucht. Nach der "Turiner Komödie" und dem Erzählband "Der Gott hinter dem Fenster" legt Autor und Verlegerlegende Michael Krüger sein neues Prosawerk vor: ein vergnüglicher Roman, in dem er wunderbar hintersinnig und hinreißend komisch einen Käfig voller Narren mitten in München porträtiert. Zugleich erzählt er die Geschichte eines Mannes, der mit dem Glück, das ihm in den Schoß fällt, partout nichts anfangen kann
