Hans Sahls wahrhaft grosser Roman: Eines der wichtigsten Werke der deutschen Exilliteratur In seinem einzigen Roman erzählt Hans Sahl die Geschichte eines Schriftstellers, der zur Flucht aus Nazi-Deutschland gezwungen wird, kreuz und quer durch Europa gehetzt wird und bei seiner glücklichen Ankunft in New York das eigenartige Gefühl nicht abschütteln kann: Das Exil werde ich nie mehr hinter mir lassen. "Ich bin kein Held. Ich habe Angst vor Ratten und vor Schlangen. Ich gehe ungern durch einen dunklen Wald. Ich liebe es nicht, misshandelt zu werden. Schlachtenlärm und Weltuntergänge sowie alle historischen Ereignisse, die sich geräuschvoll abspielen, sind mir unsympathisch. Ich liebe Bücher und Bilder, gute Musik und gute Weine." So beginnt Georg Kobbe in Hans Sahls 1959 erstmals publiziertem Roman "Die Wenigen und die Vielen" von sich zu erzählen. Es ist die abenteuerliche Geschichte eines Berliners Dichters, der, weil er die falschen Bücher las und schrieb, vor allem aber, weil er ein Jude war, durch halb Europa gejagt wurde, bis er sich schliesslich in Amerika in Sicherheit bringen konnte. Hans Sahls Roman, der vom Untergang einer ganzen Welt erzählt, gehört zu den wichtigsten Zeugnissen der Geschichte des deutschen Exils

36 editions published between 1953 and 2005 in German and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From The Book's Cover: Three Plays: Our Town - Skin Of Our Teeth - The Matchmaker. This volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of our most distinguished writers. Two of them, Our town and The Skin Of Our Teeth, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. The Matchmaker has never before been published. Our Town has been revised from the previously published version. All three plays were hits the most recent being The Matchmaker, which was first presented at the Edinburgh Festival in the summer of 1954, then played at the Royal Theatre in London before opening in New York in the fall of 1955 for a run of 489 performances. In his new preface for this volume Mr. Wilder writers: "The theatre has lagged behind the other arts in finding the 'new ways' to express how men and women think and feel in our time. I am not one of the new dramatists we are looking for. I wish I were. I hope I have played a part in preparing the way for them. I am not an innovator but a rediscoverer of for-gotten goods and I hope a remover of obtrusive bric-a-brac. And as I view the work of my contemporaries I seem to feel that I am exceptional in one thing - I give (don't I?) the impression of having enormously enjoyed it

Look back in anger, a play in three acts by John Osborne( Book )

17 editions published between 1957 and 1979 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jimmy Porter plays trumpet badly. He browbeats his flatmate, terrorizes his wife, and is not above sleeping with her best friend-who loathes Jimmy almost as much as he loathes himself. Yet this working-class Hamlet, the original Angry Young Man, is one of the most mesmerizing characters ever to burst onto a stage, a malevolently vital, volcanically articulate internal exile in the dreary, dreaming Siberia of postwar England. First produced in 1956, Look Back in Anger launched a revolution in the English theater. Savagely, sadly, and always impolitely, it compels readers and audiences to acknowledge the hidden currents of rottenness and rage in what used to be called "the good life."
