Der Osten by Andrzej Stasiuk( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zurück von der Reise, lauscht Andrzej Stasiuk des Nachts hinaus in die Weite: Was ist das, der Osten, dieses "Reich der Wunder", das ihn magisch anzieht? Dieses Kontinuum, dessen Erschütterungen von Kamtschatka bis an die Elbe zu spüren sind. Ostpolen, die Heimat, aus der seine Eltern vertrieben wurden? Der Osten namens Sowjetkommunismus, dessen Präsenz die Gesellschaft, in der er aufwuchs, kontaminiert hatte? Dies ist Stasiuks grosses Buch über "den Osten": Eine Summe seines Reisens und Schreibens - niedergelegt in einem epischen Strom, hinreissend erzählten Episoden und Epiphanien. Nie hat er bitterer über den "deutschen Osten" im eigenen Land geschrieben: jenes Territorium, auf dem die Nazis Gaskammern errichteten. Aus der Vogelschau blickt er auf sein Leben, das Gewirr aus Wegen und Routen, in dem ein Kindertraum von China sich mit dem Glücksgefühl in der Wüste Gobi kreuzt.-

3 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While political change hums in the background, Wiola looks back on her youth in a close-knit agricultural community in 1980s Poland: the superstitions of the village women, rumored visits from the pope, the locked room in the dressmaker's house. In prose that sparkles with the comedy of daily life, Wioletta Greg's debut animates the strange wonders of growing up

On the road to Babadag : travels in the other Europe by Andrzej Stasiuk( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrzej Stasiuk is a restless and indefatigable traveler. His journeys take him from his native Poland to Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Albania, Moldova, and Ukraine. By car, train, bus, ferry. To small towns and villages with unfamiliar-sounding yet strangely evocative names. "The heart of my Europe," Stasiuk tells us, "beats in Sokolow, Podlaski, and in Husi, not in Vienna." Where did Moldova end and Transylvania begin, he wonders as he is being driven at breakneck speed in an ancient Audi--loose wires hanging from the dashboard--by a driver in shorts and bare feet, a cross swinging on his chest. In Comrat, a funeral procession moves slowly down the main street, the open coffin on a pickup truck, an old woman dressed in black brushing away the flies above the face of the deceased. On to Soroca, a baroque--Byzantine--Tatar--Turkish encampment, to meet Gypsies. And all the way to Babadag, between the Baltic Coast and the Black Sea, where Stasiuk sees his first minaret, "simple and severe, a pencil pointed at the sky." A brilliant tour of Europe's dark underside--travel writing at its very best"--

Set in Gdansk, the story centres on a single day in the near future, when twelve men have been invited by their mutual friend, an artist, to model at a photographic session for a modern version of The Last Supper. The histories of the twelve men are revealed through their thoughts on the day: their wayward behaviour is a reflection of the role of the Church in Polish society today. The reunion is disturbed as a wave of terrorist bombs paralyses the city, creating upheaval and a sense of unease
