An ermine in Czernopol by Gregor von Rezzori ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Set just after World War I, An Ermine in Czernopol centers on the tragicomic fate of Tildy, an erstwhile officer in the army of the now-defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire, determined to defend the virtue of his cheating wife at any cost. Rezzori surrounds Tildy with a host of fantastic characters, engaging us in a kaleidoscopic experience of a city where nothing is as it appears--a city of discordant voices, of wild ugliness and heartbreaking disappointment, in which, however, 'laughter was everywhere, part of the air we breathed, a crackling tension in the atmosphere, always ready to erupt in showers of sparks or discharge itself in thunderous peals.'"--P. [4] of cover
Maghrebinische Geschichten by Gregor von Rezzori ( Book )
91 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gregor von Rezzori, 1914 in Czernowitz / Bukowina geboren, wuchs in Rumänien und Österreich auf und lebte in der Toskana bis zu seinem Tode. Seine "Maghrebinischen Geschichten" oder die "Denkwürdigkeiten eines Antisemiten" gehören zu den bedeutenden Werken der europäischen Literatur. MAGHREBINISCHE GESCHICHTEN Gregor von Rezzori: "Ich berichte Ihnen hier von dem sehr großen und ruhmreichen Lande Maghrebinien. Es ist in keinem Atlas eingezeichnet. Manche behaupten, es liege im Südosten - oder gar: es sei schlechthin der Südosten damit gemeint. Aber was ist der Südosten, ich bitte Sie? Um in der verdorbenen Sprache des Westens zu reden: Ein höchst relativer Begriff im kopernikanischen Weltsystem." Den Kosmos Maghrebinien bevölkern verschmitzt schlaue, stolze, verschlagene und bevorzugt Knoblauch kauende mächtige und weniger mächtige Männer. Ebenso unnahbare Zirkassierinnen, ebenholzfarbige Nubierinnen und zarte, quittengelbe Mädchen aus Zipangu
The snows of yesteryear : portraits for an autobiography by Gregor von Rezzori ( Book )
38 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gregor von Rezzori was born in Czernowitz, a onetime provincial capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire that was later to be absorbed successively into Romania, the USSR, and the Ukraine'a town that was everywhere and nowhere, with a population of astonishing diversity. Growing up after World War I and the collapse of the empire, Rezzori lived in a twilit world suspended between the formalities of the old nineteenth-century order which had shaped his aristocratic parents and the innovations, uncertainties, and raw terror of the new century. The haunted atmosphere of this dying world is beautifully rendered in the pages of The Snows of Yesteryear. The book is a series of portraits'amused, fond, sometimes appalling'of Rezzori's family: his hysterical and histrionic mother, disappointed by marriage, destructively obsessed with her children's health and breeding; his father, a flinty reactionary, whose only real love was hunting; his haughty older sister, fated to die before thirty; his earthy nursemaid, who introduced Rezzori to the power of storytelling and the inevitability of death; and a beloved governess, Bunchy. Telling their stories, Rezzori tells his own, holding his early life to the light like a crystal until it shines for us with a prismatic brilliance
