Most widely held works by Rivka Galchen
Atmospheric disturbances by Rivka Galchen( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Convinced that his wife has disappeared and left behind a duplicate of herself who fools everyone else, Dr. Leo Liebenstein embarks on a quixotic journey to reclaim his lost love, an effort during which he is aided by a deluded psychiatric patient and anenigmatic meteorologist
American innovations by Rivka Galchen( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one of the intensely imaginative stories in Rivka Galchen's American Innovations, a young woman's furniture walks out on her. In another, the narrator feels compelled to promise to deliver a takeout order that has incorrectly been phoned in to her. In a third, the petty details of a property transaction illuminate the complicated pains and loves of a family. By turns realistic, fantastical, witty, and lyrical, these marvelously uneasy stories are deeply emotional and written in exuberant, pitch-perfect prose. Whether exploring the tensions in a mother-daughter relationship or the finer points of time travel, Galchen is a writer like none other today
Atmospheric disturbances by Rivka Galchen( Recording )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Dr. Leo Liebenstein's wife disappears, she leaves behind a single, confounding clue: a woman who looks, talks, and behaves exactly like her--or almost exactly like her--and even audaciously claims to be her. While everyone else is fooled by this imposter, Leo knows better than to trust his senses in matters of the heart. Certain that the original Rema is alive and in hiding, Leo embarks on a quixotic journey to reclaim his lost love
The two deaths of Quincas Wateryell by Jorge Amado( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Along with The Discovery of America by the Turks, two masterworks by the greatest Brazilian novelist of the twentieth century, published for the centennial of his birth. Widely considered the greatest work by the foremost Brazilian author of the twentieth century, The Double Death of Quincas Water-Bray comes to Penguin Classics in a new translation by the dean of Portuguese-language translators, Gregory Rabassa. It tells the story of Joaquim Soares da Cunha, who drops dead after he abandons his life of upstanding citizenship to assume the identity of Quincas Water-Bray, a "champion drunk" and bum who is whisked along on a postmortem journey that climaxes in his loss at sea"--
McGlue by Ottessa Moshfegh( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"McGlue is in the hold, too drunk from the night before to be sure of name or situation or orientation--he may have killed a man. That man may have been his best friend. Intolerable memory accompanies sobriety. A-sail on the seas of literary tradition, Moshfegh gives us a nasty heartless blackguard, a knife-sharp voyage through the fogs of recollection"--Page 4 of cover
