Good bye, Lenin! by Eva Dix( Book )

"October 1989 was a bad time to fall into a coma if you lived in East Germany - and this is precisely what happens to Alex's proudly socialist mother. Alex has a big problem on his hands when she suddenly awakens eight months later. Her heart is so weak that any shock might kill her. And what could be more shocking than the fall of the Berlin Wall and the triumph of capitalism in her beloved East Germany? To save his mother, Alex tranforms the family apartment into an island of the past, a kind of socialist-era museum where his mother is lovingly duped into believing that nothing has changed. What begins as a little white lie turns into a major scam as Alex's sister and selected neighbors are recruited to maintain the elaborate ruse - and keep her believing that Lenin really did win after all!"--Conteneur

Sebastian Zöllner, Kunstjournalist und Meister der Selbstüberschätzung, plant seinen grossen Coup: ein Enthüllungsbuch über den legendären Maler Manuel Kaminski, Schüler von Matisse und Freund von Picasso, der einst als "blinder Maler" Berühmtheit erlangte. Der skrupellose und ehrgeizige Karrierist macht sich auf den Weg zu dem entlegenen Chalet hoch oben in den Alpen, wo der greise Künstler zurückgezogen und abgeschirmt lebt. Er dringt in Kaminskis Haus, Leben und Vergangenheit ein und nimmt ihn kurzerhand mit auf eine halsbrecherische und irrwitzige Reise zu dessen tot geglaubter Jugendliebe. Unterwegs will er ihm mit List und Dreistigkeit seine Geheimnisse entlocken. Aber bald muss er feststellen, dass er dem Alten, ob blind oder nicht, in keiner Weise gewachsen ist

Good bye Lenin! by Yann Tiersen( Recording )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras ser lanzado al estrellato por la banda sonora de "Amelie", Yann Tiersen compuso dos trabajos más que (extrañamente) aún no han llegado a nuestro país. A pesar de que el liston estaba muy alto, el polifacético músico sale airoso del reto que supone no defraudar a los que esperan algo como "Amelie", pero sin llegar a serlo. Gracias a su virtuosismo al acordeón, el francés consigue, precisamente, recrear aquellas mágicas melodías que nos remontaban al París más bohemio sin que nos parezca que se repita y con Berlín como telón de fondo
