Rudolf II, king of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor, is paranoid, spendthrift, and wayward. In sixteenth-century Prague, seat of Christendom, he rules over an empty treasury and a court of parasites and schemers.

Saint Peter's snow by Leo Perutz( Book )

85 editions published between 1933 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It could have been a common street accident that put Dr. Georg Amberg in the hospital, but for the five weeks his doctors say he has been in a coma--recovering from a brain hemorrhage after being run down by a car--he has memories of a more disturbing nature. What of the violent events in the rural village of Morwede? The old woman threatening the priest with a bread knife, angry peasants with flails and cudgels, Baron von Malchin with a pistol defending his dreams for the Holy Roman Empire--how could Dr. Amberg ignore these? And what of the secret experiment to make a mind-altering drug from a white mildew occurring on wheat--a mildew called Saint Peter's Snow? In this feverish tale of a man caught in the balance between two realities, Leo Perutz offers a mystery of identity and a fable of faith and political fervor. Banned by the Nazis when it was first published in 1933, Saint Peter's Snow is typical of Perutz's storytelling mastery: extraordinarily rich and elegant fiction that is taut with suspense, full of Old World irony and humor and "a timeless tale" (Kirkus Reviews).

Vittorin, a young Austrian officer, has just been released from a Russian POW camp toward the end of the Great War.

Between nine and nine by Leo Perutz( Book )

63 editions published between 1918 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In turn of the century Vienna the impoverished, foreign-born Stanislaus Demba, who earns his keep as a tutor of the children of the professional class, must urgently come up with two hundred crowns to take his girlfriend Sonja Hartmann to Italy in order to prevent her from going with the well-off law student Georg Weiner. In a series of highly humorous and intricately-connected vignettes the Czech-born Leo Perutz, himself an immigrant to Vienna, sends the enigmatic and generally unsympathetic Demba cascading through the city in his quest to obtain the needed money even as he strives to conceal his shameful secret. Besides offering a satire of contemporary life in his characterization of the petty bourgeoisie and the upper class, university professors and intellectuals, gallants and flirts, and gamblers and high-class thieves, Between Nine and Nine (1918) also sheds light on the forces that conditioned identity in fin-de-siecle Vienna: industrialization, misogyny, anti-Semitism, classism, and xenophobia. Through the modern, indeterminate narrative stance, the novel, originally entitled "Freedom" in its serialized version, ultimately depicts the contingency of self-determination and identity in a complex social milieu. On display in Between Nine and Nine are the author's skills as storyteller and caricaturist; his subtle and satiric humor; his highly refined apathetic sensibilities, and his insightful social commentary. Readers unfamiliar with Leo Perutz will find him delightfully provocative."--Jacket
