Anniversaries : from the life of Gesine Cresspahl by Uwe Johnson( Book )

20 editions published between 1974 and 2018 in English and German and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark of 20th Century literature about New York in the late 1960s, now in English for the first time.Late in 1967, Uwe Johnson set out to write a book that would take the unusual form of a chapter for every day of the ongoing year. It would be the tale of Gesine Cresspahl, a thirty-four-year-old single mother who is a German émigré to Manhattan's Upper West Side, and of her ten-year-old daughter, Marie--a story of work and school, of friends and lovers and the countless small encounters with neighbors and strangers that make up big-city life. An everyday tale, but also a tale of the events of the day, as gleaned by Gesine from The New York Times: Johnson could hardly foresee the convulsions of 1968, but some of the news--the racial unrest roiling America, the escalating war in Vietnam--was sure to be news for some time yet to come. Finally, it would be a tale told by Gesine to Marie about Gesine's childhood in a small north German town, of her independent and enterprising father, of her troubled mother, of Nazi Germany (Gesine was born the year Hitler came to power) and World War II and Soviet retribution and the grimly regulated realities of Communist East Germany. An ambitious historical novel as well as a wonderfully observed New York novel, Anniversaries would take in the unsettled world of the present along with the twentieth century's ­disastrous past, while vividly depicting the struggle of a loving, though hardly uncomplicated mother and a bright, indomitably curious girl to understand and care for each other and to shape a human world.Gesine and Marie are among the most memorable and engaging characters in literature, and Anniversaries, at once monumental and intimate, sweeping and full of incident, stylistically adventurous and endlessly absorbing, is quite simply one of the great books of our time

The core to this novel is remembrance, and Jahrestage is a requiem for the victims of twentieth-century German history.

A trip to Klagenfurt : in the footsteps of Ingeborg Bachmann by Uwe Johnson( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann died in Rome but was buried in Klagenfurt, the city of her childhood. Only days later, Uwe Johnson made a pilgrimage to her grave site and to Klagenfurt itself, which Bachmann had always promised to show him. Johnson re-creates her presence by layering the cultural, physical, and historical landscape of the city - from its picturesque lake and totemic dragon to a personal visit from Hitler during Bachmann's childhood - with Bachmann's letters, interviews, and published writings. The result is a biographical montage that explores the vast forces behind a single extraordinary life. A Trip to Klagenfurt illuminates the writers' friendship as well as Johnson's entire generation."--BOOK JACKET
"Fuer Zwecke der brutalen Verstaendigung" : Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Uwe Johnson : der Briefwechsel by Hans Magnus Enzensberger( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1959, kurz nach Uwe Johnsons Übersiedelung in den Westen Berlins und der Veröffentlichung seines Debütromans Mutmassungen über Jakob, beginnen der Briefwechsel und die Freundschaft zwischen ihm und Hans Magnus Enzensberger. Über einen Zeitraum von acht Jahren verständigen sie sich über die literarische und politische Lage und diskutieren die Spielräume politischen Engagements. Zugleich aber zeugen die 161 Dokumente von einer Auseinandersetzung über Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von Freundschaft. Bereits im Oktober 1966 forderte Uwe Johnson, den gemeinsamen Briefwechsel "nicht mehr fuer eine kuenftige Edition und Altersversorgung einzurichten sondern fuer Zwecke der brutalen Verstaendigung". Über scheinbar Alltäglichem kommt es zu prinzipiellen Betrachtungen und zuletzt zu einem Zerwürfnis: Daß Uwe Johnson seine Berliner Wohnungen Enzensbergers erster Frau Dagrun und dessen Bruder Ulrich zur Verfügung stellt, führt in Aporien von Vertrauen, Bürgschaft und Verantwortung. Ein Jahr später erreicht selbst diese
