The Wednesday club by Kjell Westö( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). 1938. Hitler's expansionist policies are arousing both anger and admiration, not least in the 'Wednesday Club' in Helsinki. Something of a relaxed gentlemen's club, the group's members are old friends of lawyer Claes Thune. They socialise, discuss politics and drink together, but this year it is apparent that the political unrest in Europe is having an effect on the cohesion of the club. Thune, who has returned home after several years serving as a diplomat in Moscow and Stockholm, has recently divorced and is at something of a loss; he runs his law practice without any great enthusiasm, and the growing political anxiety and the chaos in his own life feel like two sides of the same coin. Fortunately he has the assistance of his new secretary, Matilda Wiik. But behind her polished exterior Matilda is tormented by memories of the Finnish Civil War, when at the age of just seventeen she experienced things she has been trying to forget ever since
Tante Elsie und mein letzter Sommer : ausgewählte Erzählungen by Kjell Westö( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jag är inte säker på om jag kan erbjuda något av ovanstående. Den kortaste berättelsen i det här urvalet är några sidor lång, den längsta går på nästan hundra. Litteraturvärlden är full av oskrivna regler, och jag har aldrig varit bra på dem. Litteraturvärlden är också full av benämningar, men jag har aldrig funnit benämningar särskilt intressanta. Långnovell eller kortroman, historiett eller epos; jag är bara intresserad av en sak, berättelsen."Så skriver författaren Kjell Westö i förordet till novellsamlingen Lugna favoriter. Här blandas tidigare utgivna noveller med för den tiden nyskrivna, där skildringen av barns och ungdomars utsatthet ligger i fokus. [Elib]

Privid 1938. by Kjell Westö( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in Croatian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nakon što ga je tijekom diplomatske karijere napustila supruga, Claes Thune otvara odvjetnički ured, u kojem zapošljava šutljivu tajnicu Matildu Wiik, a slobodno vrijeme provodi s prijateljima iz mladih dana okupljenima u Klubu sredaša. Helsinki 1938. još je uvijek ugodno mjesto za život, a rane iz kratkoga ali krvavoga građanskog rata 1918. naizgled su zacijeljele. Ipak, prve naznake antisemitizma polako remete naizgled idiličnu sliku glavnoga finskoga grada, a i nagrizaju odnose u Thuneovoj obitelji te među sredašima. Gospođa Wiik istodobno vodi borbu sa svojom traumatičnom prošlošću, a Thune ne može ni naslutiti kakvu će lavinu pokrenuti slučajni susret u njegovu uredu
