"Jules Epstein, a man whose drive, avidity, and outsized personality have, for sixty-eight years, been a force to be reckoned with, is undergoing a metamorphosis. In the wake of his parents' deaths, his divorce from his wife of more than thirty years, and his retirement from the New York law firm where he was a partner, he has felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions, alarming his children and perplexing the executor of his estate. With the last of his wealth he travels to Israel, with a nebulous plan to do something to honor his parents. In Tel Aviv, he is sidetracked by a charismatic American rabbi planning a reunion for the descendants of King David who insists that Epstein is part of that storied dynastic line. He also meets the rabbi's beautiful daughter, who convinces Epstein to become involved in her own project--a film about the life of David that is being shot in the desert--with life-changing consequences. But Epstein isn't the only seeker embarking on a metaphysical journey that dissolves his sense of self, place, and history. Leaving her family in Brooklyn, a well-known young, well-known novelist arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton, where she has stayed every year since her birth. Troubled by writer's block and a failing marriage, she hopes that the hotel can unlock a dimension of reality--and her own perception of life--that has been closed off to her. But when she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can't turn down, she is drawn into a mystery that alters her life in ways she could never have imagined. Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a profound, mesmerizing novel of transformation and self-realization--of looking beyond all that is visible toward the infinite."--Dust jacket

Stalin is dead : stories and aphorisms on animals, poets and other earthly creatures by Rachel Sihor( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Stalin is Dead, ' Shihor offers a medley of aphorisms, flash fiction, and short stories, carving out a slice of the world in which Kafka would feel at home. The characters that inhabit this world - reckless she-goats, morose fish, somnambulistic theologians, poignant old ladies, dying dictators, and dead poets, to name just a few - have nothing in common save for the fact that they instruct us on the human condition. These edifying stories, with all their sadness and humor, are a writer's tour de force and a reader's delight

La imaginación, la inteligencia y la sutil elegancia que hicieron de la segunda novela de Nicole Krauss, La historia del amor, un éxito internacional de lectores y crítica, se aprecian de forma inconfundible en esta obra de notable lucidez que supuso el debut literario de Krauss. Después de vagar perdido más de una semana en el desierto de Nevada, Samson Greene, profesor de Literatura en la Universidad de Columbia, es encontrado en un aparente estado de amnesia. Ha perdido todos sus recuerdos desde la edad de doce años, y ahora, convertido en un adulto inteligente y sensible con los recuerdos de un niño, procura reanudar su antigua vida en Nueva York con el apoyo de Anna, su mujer. Sin embargo, en una ciudad donde todo le resulta nuevo y extraño, Samson se siente incapaz de conciliar el plácido mundo de su infancia con la desconcertante realidad que lo reclama, hasta el punto de que empieza a dudar si en verdad quiere recobrar el saber y el afecto perdidos. Cuando un carismático científico le propone someterse a un experimento de alto riesgo, Samson acepta y regresa al desierto, iniciando un intenso y revelador periplo que lo llevará a conocer los límites de la soledad y el conocimiento íntimo. Nicole Krauss explora con total desenvoltura el papel que los recuerdos desempeñan en la identidad de las personas, y hasta qué punto la desmemoria, en el cambiante y acelerado mundo contemporáneo, es un estado misteriosamente temido y deseado al mismo tiempo. El resultado es esta novela hermosa y brillante, profunda y honesta, que no deja a nadie indiferente
