The play is set in the tiny principality of Andorra in southwestern Europe. The story revolves around a young boy, Andri, who is brought up as the Jewish adoptive son of the town's Teacher, who claims to have rescued him as a child from the neighbouring, anti-semitic "Blacks" (implying Blackshirts). However, it is revealed during the first half of the play that the story of Andri's origin is a lie: he is the illegitimate child of the Teacher and the Señora, a lady from the Blacks, and Andri is not a Jew. When the play starts, Andri is engaged to the Teacher's daughter Barblin, who he has grown up with and who (unbeknownst to him) is his half-sister. While the Teacher tries to ensure they do not marry, Andri becomes the center of anti-semitism first from his fellow town members and later from invading Black forces. When the Teacher finally reveals the truth, the townspeople do not accept it, and permit Andri to be killed. At the end, Andri identifies with the Jews and defiantly welcomes his fate.

Biography: a game by Max Frisch( Book )

17 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in German and English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this play by Swiss playwright and novelist Max Frisch, a middle-aged behavioral researcher Kürmann is given the opportunity to start his life over at any point he chooses and change his decisions and actions in matters both serious and mundane. He could save his marriage, become politically active, take better care of his health, or even change the color of his living-room furniture. Despite his intention to apply the wisdom he has acquired with age, Kürmann finds himself inexorably trapped in the same decisions. Ultimately proving fatal, Kürmann's life game interrogates how much of our own path is shaped by seemingly random factors and how much is in fact predetermined by our own limited, conditioned selves. The play's central idea - that our lives are nothing but a self-conscious play with imaginary identities - is brilliantly captured in Biography's dramaturgical form, set up a theatre rehearsal as the metaphor for the endless possibilities and variables of the game of life. Frisch's own revised, dramatically heightened version of his play celebrates not only the theatre as a form of self-expression but also the human condition in all its potential and limitations as it showcases both comic and tragic outcomes that define all our lives
Die Schwierigen; oder, J'adore ce qui me brûle by Max Frisch( Book )

76 editions published between 1942 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein früher Roman von Max Frisch, der viele Jahre lang nicht mehr einzeln lieferbar war. Yvonne, Tochter aus gutem Haus, heiratet den Archäologen Hinkelmann. Als sie schwanger wird und er hilflos reagiert, verlässt sie ihn kurzerhand. Yvonne will in Zürich in der Schweiz unabhängig leben, gerät aber in eine schwierige Liebe zum jungen Künstler Jürg Reinhart. Der Roman, "ein Gespinst aus dicht verwobenen Handlungsfäden und zarten Seelenanalysen, unterscheidet sich von Frischs späteren Büchern besonders durch das Rätselvolle seiner Menschen, das Geheimnis, das sie umgibt". (Karlheinz Deschner) Vor dem 100. Geburtstag Frischs im Mai 2011 ist das Buch in Peter von Matts Kollektion wieder zugänglich
