Szigorúan ellenőrzött vonatok by Bohumil Hrabal( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in Hungarian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Túlzás nélkül állíthatjuk, hogy a mű szerzője sajátságos elbeszélői stílusával külön műfajt teremtett a prózai írásművek között. Ennek egyik jellegzetes darabja a kisregény, amelynek főhőse Miloš Hrma forgalmista, akit nem igazán érint meg a körülötte zajló világégés - ő a férfiasságával vív egyelőre vesztes harcot, olyannyira, hogy épp öngyilkosságából gyógyulgat. Még szerencse, hogy befut az állomásra ama bizonyos lőszerszállító vagon, rajta nemcsak megannyi német fegyverrel, hanem egy kisleánnyal is, aki "beavatja" Milošt. Megtörténik tehát a csoda, s ezen felbuzdulva vállalja el az immár teljes értékű férfi a vonat felrobbantását. A történetben tökéletes harmóniában elegyedik a groteszk, gyakran obszcén humor, a kisemberek tutyimutyi komikuma és a valódi, történelemformáló hősiesség - Hrabal klasszikusa a már meglévő állomány tükrében ajánlható a könyvtárak figyelmébe

The cowards by Josef Škvorecký( Book )

7 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in Hungarian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cowards " is Josef Skvorecky's blackly comic tale of post-war politics that was immediately banned on publication. In 1945, in Kostelec, Danny is playing saxophone for the best jazz band in Czechoslovakia. Their trumpeter has just got out of a concentration camp, their bass player is only allowed in the band since he owns the bass, and the love of Danny's life is in love with somebody else. But Danny despairs most about the bourgeoisie patriots in his town playing at revolution in the face of the approaching Red Army - not least because it ruins the band's chance of any good gigs

Nine gates to the Chassidic mysteries by Mordechai Georgo Langer( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in Hungarian and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eighteen months after it was published, it was banned by the Nazis, who had occupied the region and labeled the book a monstrosity of art, copies being confiscated as a result of house-to-house searches. Yet, this exceptional example of spiritual autobiography continues to live, having since been translated into several languages, including Italian and German. Part of the special quality of Nine Gates to the Chasidic Mysteries is that despite its being deeply rooted in the world of mystical Judaism, the sketches of chasidic life and the folktales that Langer learned during his life among the chasidim are written for the reader who is not familiar with the esoteric theology of Kabbalah. As the author's brother remarks in his insightful and revealing foreword to the book, "Their purpose was to tell . . . something different about the Jews from that which Nazi anti-Semitism was endeavoring to smuggle across the Czechoslovak frontier."" "Jiri Langer was indeed a remarkable individual. A friend of Franz Kafka (he taught Kafka Hebrew) and Max Brod (who writes in his own autobiography that some of his work would never have been written without Langer's help), he was also one of Sigmund Freud's earliest admirers, and he wrote a number of studies of Jewish ritual and literature, applying Freud's ideas along the way."
