The cheat : a novel by Karel Čapek( Book )

5 editions published between 1940 and 1942 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Last and unfinished work of the author, which deals with a man who wanted to be recognized as an artist, a musician, and a composer of at least one opera. Beda Foltyn is described in 14 chapters by those who knew him. He comes across as a self-centered and self-indulgent individual who is somewhat of a despicable poseur--a phony. Nonetheless, the book ends "like a fugue to the glory of God's creation and of man's true art."

The gardener's year by Karel Čapek( Book )

8 editions published between 1931 and 1951 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is seldom that a practical guide to gardening attains the level of a literary masterpiece, still more seldom that a book on gardening can amuse and instruct even those who have no garden to plant., nor the faintest interest in acquiring one. The GardenerGÇÖs Year is a charismatic product of Karel CapekGÇÖs genius: amusing, informative, and full of a quizzical interest in people, animals and plants. In this new version, Geoffrey Newsome GÇôthe highly acclaimed translator of CapekGÇÖs witty Letters from England GÇôhas captured the grace and irony of the original Czech, to produce a volume that

Three novels: Hordubal, An ordinary life [and] Meteor by Karel Čapek( Book )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This trilogy of novels was the culmination of Karel Capek's career. The novels share neither characters nor events; instead, they approach the problem of knowing people--of mutual understanding--in a variety of ways. Detectives faced with a murder reconstruct the crime, but not the character of the man who was murdered. Three people tell stories about a dying pilot they know almost nothing about; each story is as full of truth as it is devoid of facts. And one man looks back on his life and discovers all the people he might have been."--Back cover
