The black rider : the casting of the 12 magic bullets( Visual )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Black Rider is Wilson's homage to German Expressionism, with the distorted perspectives of Expressionist painting and the exaggerated gestures of cabaret and silent movies. Based loosely on the German folktale underlying von Weber's opera Der Freischutz (1821), the production has many American twists, as one might safely assume with collaborators like Tom Waits and William Burroughs"--Robertwilson.com

Der menschliche Makel : Hörspiel by Philip Roth( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Roman erzählt eine Geschichte, die an Tragik, unvorhersehbaren Wendungen des Schicksals, jähen Enthüllungen des Autors und schließlich einer oft sardonischen Komik wenig zu wünschen übrig lässt. Dazu kommen ein rhetorisches Feuer, eine Lust am Wort, das zum Gedanken führt, und eine Lust an der Wiederholung, die den Gedanken wenn nicht zerstört, so doch vorübergehend stilllegt, einlullt, in eine Abschweifung führt wie die Musik von Gustav Mahler, in der alle Intelligenz, alle Differenzierung den Hörer am Ende in einen somnambulen Zustand versetzt. Beides sind die Kennzeichen der Romane von Philip Roth von Anfang an: ein Furor in der Fabel und in der Rhetorik, der nur insofern der radikalen Moderne des 20. Jahrhunderts seinen Tribut zollt, als Roth in den Geschichten, die er erzählt, mehrere Ebenen installiert, die das "naive" Erzählen bereichern. So heißt auch hier der Erzähler der Geschichte von Brutus Coleman eben nicht Philip Roth, sondern Nathan Zuckerman, ein Alter Ego, das Philip Roths Werk von Anfang an begleitet, das viele Züge seines Erfinders trägt, aber nicht mit ihm verwechselt sein will
