1914 : a novel by Jean Echenoz( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Frenchmen go off to war, two of them leaving behind a certain young woman who longs for their return. But the main character in 1914 is the Great War itself. Jean Echenoz, the multi-award winning French literary magician whose work has been compared to Joseph Conrad and Lawrence Sterne, has brought that deathtrap back to life, leading us gently from a balmy summer day deep into the insatiable and still unthinkable carnage of trench warfare. With the delicacy of a miniaturist and with irony both witty and clear-eyed, the author offers us an intimate epic with the atmosphere of a classic movie: in the panorama of a clear blue sky, a biplane spirals suddenly into the ground; a tardy piece of shrapnel shears the top off a man's head as if it were a soft-boiled egg; we dawdle dreamily in a springscented clearing with a lonely shellshocked soldier strolling innocently to a firing squad ready to shoot him

To the friend who did not save my life by Hervé Guibert( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unbestechlich beobachtet, beschreibt Herve Guibert den Zerfall des eigenen Körpers. Beklemmend an seinem Bericht sind weniger die kruden sexuellen Beschreibungen - etwa die sadomasochistischen Ausschweifungen Foucaults - als vielmehr die Stellen über das Sterben und den Tod. Guibert hat ein schockierendes Buch vorgelegt, das in Frankreich wie ein Bombe einschlug und auch hierzulande viel zu reden geben wird. In seiner Anlage wie in seinem Wirken kann man es eigentlich nur mit Fritz Zorns Mars vergleichen - doch es geht nicht mehr um Krebs, sondern um Aids
En finir avec Eddy Bellegueule : roman by Édouard Louis( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Befreiungsschlag, ein neues Leben - souverän und sprachgewaltig erzählt von Frankreichs neuem literarischen Star Édouard Louis "Ich rannte weg, ganz auf einmal. Gerade hörte ich meine Mutter noch sagen 'Was soll der Scheiß jetzt wieder?'. Aber ich wollte nicht bei ihnen bleiben, ich weigerte mich, diesen Moment mit ihnen zu teilen. Ich war schon weit weg, ich gehörte nicht mehr zu ihrer Welt, der Brief besagte es. Ich kam zu den Feldern und wanderte einen Großteil der Nacht herum, auf den Feldwegen, in der Kühle Nordfrankreichs, in dem zu dieser Jahreszeit so intensiven Geruch der Rapsfelder. Die ganze Nacht über entwarf ich mein neues Leben fern von hier." Mit unglaublicher Sprachgewalt erzählt der junge französische Autor Édouard Louis die Geschichte einer Befreiung aus einer unerträglichen Kindheit: inspiriert von seiner eigenen.

The extraordinary journey of the fakir who got trapped in an IKEA wardrobe by Romain Puértolas( Book )

When the fakir--a professional con artist--arrives in Paris, he has just one goal: to get to Ikea. Armed with only a counterfeit hundred-euro note in the pocket of his silk trousers, he is confident that he has all he needs to thrive. But his plan goes horribly awry when he hides inside a wardrobe at the iconic Swedish retailer--the first in a series of accidents that will send him on a whirlwind tour across Europe. Pursued across the continent by a swindled taxi driver dead set on revenge, our fakir soon finds unlikely friends--from movie stars to illegal immigrants--in even unlikelier places. And, much to his own surprise, his heart begins to open to those around him as he comes to understand the universal desire to seek a better life in an often dangerous world

Jacques the fatalist and his master by Denis Diderot( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques the Fatalist is Diderot's answer to the problem of existence. If human beings are determined by their genes and their environment, how can they claim to be free to want or do anything? Where are Jacques and his Master going? Are they simply occupying space, living mechanically until they die, believing erroneously that they are in charge of their Destiny? Diderot intervenes to cheat our expectations of what fiction should be and do, and behaves like a provocative, ironic, and unfailingly entertaining master of revels which finally show why Fate is not to be equated with doom." "In the introduction to this new translation, David Coward explains the philosophical basis of Diderot's fascination with Fate and shows why Jacques the Fatalist pioneers techniques of action which, two centuries on, novelists still regard as experimental."--Jacket
