The foxes come at night by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

24 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the cities and islands of the Mediterranean, and linked thematically, the eight stories in The Foxes Come At Night read more like a novel, a meditation on memory, life and death. Their protagonists collect and reconstruct fragments of lives lived intensely, and now lost, crystallized in memory or in the detail of a photograph. In 'Paula', the narrator evokes the mysterious, brief life of a woman he once loved; in 'Paula II', the same woman is aware of the man thinking of her. No longer a body, she is slowly fading into the distance, remembering the time they spent together, and his fear of the black night when the foxes appear. And yet the tone of these stories is far from pessimistic: it seems that death is nothing to be afraid of. Nooteboom is a superb stylist who observes the world with a combination of melancholy and astonishment. These stories are textured with humour, pathos and vast knowledge, the hallmarks of this outstanding and highly respected European writer
Brieven aan Poseidon by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in Dutch and English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At once playful and poignant, beautiful and bizarre, this masterpiece uses the minutiae of everyday life to illuminate the broadest questions of human existence, all couched in the glittering prose of one of Europe's outstanding stylists. The Roman emperor Caligula famously called off an invasion of Britain and instead ordered his legions into the surf to attack the god of the sea. Cees Nooteboom is more civil. As autumn falls each year he writes Poseidon a letter requesting permission to return to his home in Minorca the following spring. Of course, it would be discourteous if the letters were no more than a series of demands. So Cees seeks the wisdom of the trident-wielding deity, and takes the opportunity to keep him up to speed on his own musings"--Publisher's description

Brasilia-Chandigarh : living with modernity by Iwan Baan( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1960, Braslia was celebrated as the realization of an urban-planning vision based on designs by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer. At the same time, the city of Chandīgarh, rationally laid out in sectors was taking shape according to plans by Le Corbusier. The 'test-tube' city arose as an export of modernity from a Western planning euphoria that reveals utopian traits. Living with Modernity examines how modernism has been expropriated in the two cities. Commonalites and differences are identified while images of everyday urban life are showcased in photographs by photographer Iwan Baan."

Nachttrein naar Mandalay : alle Aziatische reizen by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Dutch and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nachttrein naar Mandalay bevat alle verhalen van Cees Nootebooms reizen door het continent Azië. Het zijn prachtige reportages, geschreven met een subliem oog voor detail. Hij volgt onder meer Slauerhoff naar Macau en de Poort van China. Vele malen reist hij naar Japan, na Spanje zijn grootste inspiratie. In Birma neemt hij de nachttrein naar Mandalay, in Iran dwaalt hij door de ruïnes van Persepolis, in Benares vaart hij over de Ganges langs de ghats waar de doden verbrand worden. 'Ikzelf ben maar een vluchtige voorbijganger,' zegt hij ergens in Kyoto, maar wat hij vastlegt over de plaatsen die hij bezoekt, verankert zich voorgoed in de geest van de lezer
Roads to Santiago by Cees Nooteboom( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De omweg naar Santiago is een van de mooiste reisboeken uit de Nederlandse literatuur. Het is de neerslag van alle omzwervingen van Cees Nooteboom in Spanje, waarbij hij de lezer meeneemt op zijn ontdekkingstocht door de geschiedenis, kunst en literatuur van het land dat hem gaandeweg veroverde. `Spanje is bruut, anarchistisch, egocentrisch, wreed, Spanje is bereid zich voor onzin de das om te doen, het is chaotisch, het droomt, het is irrationeel. Het veroverde de wereld en wist er niets mee te doen, het haakt in zijn middeleeuwse, Arabische, joodse en christelijke verleden en ligt daar met zijn eigenzinnige steden gebed in die oneindige lege landschappen als een continent dat aan Europa vastzit en geen Europa is. Wie niet geprobeerd heeft te verdwalen in de labyrintische complexiteit van zijn geschiedenis weet niet waar hij doorheen reist. Het is een liefde voor het leven, aan de verbazing komt nooit een eind. En uiteindelijk is De omweg naar Santiago een charmant zelfportret. `Het Spaanse karakter en het Spaanse leven corresponderen met datgene waar ik over ga, met bewuste en onbewuste dingen in mijn wezen, met wie ik ben.
