Forest dark : a novel by Nicole Krauss( Book )

38 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket

Thirty-six years old, with a wife, Anna, and a dog, Frank. But Samson doesn't even recognize his own name, and by the time Anna has make her way across the country to pick him up, doctors have discovered a cherry-sized tumor in his brain; its removal eradicates the last twenty-four years of Samson's memories." "Samson and Anna return to New York together, where Samson struggles to connect with the woman he knows he is supposed to love, with his career, with his home, with his "life"." "Into these daily lives fraught with a peculiarly intimate tension comes a charismatic scientist who invites Samson to take part in a groundbreaking medical experiment in the Nevada desert. It doesn't take much to lure Samson away from his profound loneliness in the city, where he is stuck between missing the past life that surrounds him and yearning to enjoy the fresh start he's been given. But Anna is never far from his thoughts as he embarks on the journey that promises adventure and revelation but may mean the end of the old Samson Greene."--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

Nicole Krauss, die Autorin des Welterfolges 'Die Geschichte der Liebe', kehrt mit einem phantastischen Roman zurück: Ein vom Leben enttäuschter reicher New Yorker Anwalt und eine Schriftstellerin mit Eheproblemen machen sich auf die Suche nach dem Unbekannten in sich selbst und finden in der Wüste Israels überraschende Wege, über sich, ihre Träume und die Welt hinaus ins Unendliche zu schauen. Jules Epstein, 68, einst Beweger und politischer Macher mit übergroßem Ego, gerät nach der Scheidung von seiner langjährigen Frau aus dem Tritt. Zum Schrecken seiner Kinder verschenkt er den größten Teil seines Vermögens und möchte den Rest in eine Stiftung zum Gedenken an seine verstorbenen Eltern stecken. Am liebsten würde er den seit 2000 Jahren abgeholzten Mount Hebron in Israel aufforsten lassen. Schon im Flieger allerdings lernt er einen Rabbiner kennen, der ein Treffen sämtlicher lebender Abkömmlinge von König David plant und darauf besteht, Epstein gehöre zu dieser traditionsreichen dynastischen Linie. Epstein versucht, den versponnenen Rabbi loszuwerden, aber dann trifft er auf dessen verführerische Tochter, die in der Wüste Negev einen Film dreht ... (Quelle: buchhandel.de)
