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

36 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,566 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 )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 770 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
Little labors by Rivka Galchen( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little Labors is a slanted, enchanted literary miscellany. Varying in length from just a sentence or paragraph to a several-page story or essay, Galchen's puzzle pieces assemble into a shining, unpredictable, mordant picture of the ordinary-extraordinary nature of babies and literature. Anecdotal or analytic, each part opens up an odd and tender world of wonder
Atmospheric disturbances by Rivka Galchen( Recording )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 231 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
McGlue by Ottessa Moshfegh( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 218 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
