Every man dies alone by Hans Fallada( Book )

Gilgi, one of us by Irmgard Keun( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stirring, never-before-translated story of a single, pregnant, and wickedly nervy young secretary making her way through a Germany succumbing to the Nazis. Irmgard Keun's first novel "Gilgi "was an overnight sensation upon its initial publication in Germany, selling thousands of copies, inspiring numerous imitators, and making Keun a household name--a reputation that was only heightened when, a few years later, Keun sued the Gestapo for blocking her royalties. The story of a young woman trying to establish her independence in a society being overtaken by fascism, "Gilgi" was not only a brave story, but revolutionary in its depiction of women's issues, at the same time that it was, simply, an absorbing and stirring tale of a dauntless spirit. Gilgi is a secretary in a hosiery firm, but she doesn't intend to stay there for long: she's disciplined and ambitious, taking language classes, saving up money to go abroad, and carefully avoiding both the pawing of her boss and any other prolonged romantic entanglements. But then she falls in love with Martin, a charming drifter, and leaves her job for domestic bliss--which turns out not to be all that blissful-- and Gilgi finds herself pregnant and facing a number of moral dilemmas. Revolutionary at the time for its treatment of sexual harassment, abortion, single motherhood, and the "New Woman," "Gilgi" remains a perceptive and beautifully constructed novel about one woman's path to maturity. It is presented here in its first-ever translation into English

Herod's children by Ilse Aichinger( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ilse Aichiner was born to a Jewish mother in Vienna in 1921. Prior to 1939 her Aunt Klara waited for the family in London, but only Ilse's twin sister, Helga, escaped on the last 'Kindertransport'. Ilse remained. She survived, and published 'The Greater hope' in 1948. The novel reflects Ilse Aichinger's experience of anti-Semitism as a young woman in Nazi Austria, and through her extraordinary use of language the author not only captures the horror and the humanity of that experience, but also transcends it to offer a profound meditation on a greater hope, the metaphysical perspectives of which surpass the physical trajectories of devastation, deportation and death ... The Afterword to this new translation creates...an original and in-depth analysis of interviews given by Aichinger throughout her life. The Coda to this edition consists of a commentary upon and quotations from a previously unpublished letter from Ilse Aichinger in Vienna to her twin sister, Helga, in London for Christmas 1945"--Back cover
