Ice on the bridge : a novel by Erich Wolfgang Skwara( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in German and English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Austrian architect, Sebastian Winter, flies to San Diego from Vienna to attend a conference, filled with apprehension about returning to the city where he had once lived, until the love of his life, Claudia, without warning, stepped out of their car and out of his life, never to return."--BOOK JACKET. "At the final banquet Winter is seized by the fear that his wife could suddenly appear among the guests. He gets drunk and in driving home kills a pedestrian and is arrested. While in jail awaiting bail from Vienna, he relives the past that has led up to this point in his life. A young murderer placed in the cell with him becomes a catalyst for Winter's life. He views the young man as the personification of a statue of Saint Sebastian which Claudia had admired in a village church in Tuscany but which had made him feel inferior."--BOOK JACKET. "The bail money arrives, and Winter expects to forget the entire episode like a bad dream. But the experience will not leave him, the trauma will not end. The aesthete who had always considered himself superior to others and in control of his life has learned by being thrust into reality that he too is vulnerable."--Jacket
The cool million : a novel by Erich Wolfgang Skwara( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a brilliant, burning-cool satire on the decline of Western culture. The action takes place largely in a university setting, and the antihero is a professor who knows the academic system only too well. But we are not dealing here with an academic novel in any traditional sense. Rather, the campus and the business orientation of the administration -- even its soi-disant scholarship -- comprise a devastating model of where our culture is headed, in fact of where it already may be. --Amazon.com
Black sails by Erich Wolfgang Skwara( Book )

8 editions published between 1979 and 1999 in German and English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A novel that resembles a Kafkaesque puppet theater: a mad director regards the world as a stage that he alone controls. He forces his associates into roles determined by him - his directorial concept proves as absurd as it is consistent. Skwara, with his mastery of language, has composed not only a fascinating, intimate literary work but also a discourse on many evils of every era, including our own. Thus the novel, which originally was published in German in 1979, remains valid over the years and beyond its narrower theme."--Jacket
