Peeling the onion by Günter Grass ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nobel Prize-winning author Gunter Grass remembers his early life, from his boyhood in a cramped two-room apartment in Danzig through the late 1950s, when The Tin Drum was published. During the Second World War, Grass volunteered for the submarine corps at the age of fifteen but was rejected; two years later, in 1944, he was instead drafted into the Waffen-SS. Taken prisoner by American forces as he was recovering from shrapnel wounds, he spent the final weeks of the war in an American POW camp. After the war, Grass resolved to become an artist and moved with his first wife to Paris, where he began to write the novel that would make him famous. Full of the bravado of youth, the rubble of postwar Germany, the thrill of wild love affairs, and the exhilaration of Paris in the early fifties, this book reveals Grass at his most intimate.--From publisher description

Talks with T.G. Masaryk by T. G Masaryk ( )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Never have two such important world figures collaborated in a biography: Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (1850–1937), the original philosopher-president who founded Czechoslovakia in 1918, and Karel Capek (1890–1938), the leading Czech writer of the time. Capek interviewed Masaryk over a number of years and produced a single narrative that tells Masaryk's incredible story in a voice as ordinary yet magical as the best of Capek's fictional characters. The result is a biographical work like no other, in form or in content
Too loud a solitude by Bohumil Hrabal ( Book )
5 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hanta has been compacting trash for thirty-five years. Every evening he rescues books from the jaws of his hydraulic press, carries them home, and fills his house with them. Hanta may be an idiot, as his boss calls him, but he is an idiot with a difference--the ability to quote the Talmud, Hegel, and Lao-tzu. In this baroque and winsome tale, Hrabal, celebrates the power and the indestructibility of the written word."--Back cover
