Andorra : a play in twelve scenes by Max Frisch( Book )

455 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. --Wikipedia.com

Man in the Holocene : a story by Max Frisch( Book )

104 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man's lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch's protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch's most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser's desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window

Homo faber : ein Bericht by Max Frisch( Book )

160 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faber ist die vollkommene Verkorperung der technischen Existenz, die sich vor dem Zufall und dem Schicksal sicher glaubt. Diesen Faber, der das funfzigste Lebensjahr schon uberschritten hat, lasst [den Autor] systematisch mit der aussertechnischen Welt, der Selbstmord seines ehemaligen Freundes im Dschungal von Mexiko - das bringt sein rational zementiertes Weltbild nicht ins Wanken. Erstshaft wird es erst bedroht, als Faber durch die Ereignisse zu einem Rechenscchaftsbericht uber seine eigene Vergangenheit gezwungen wird. Ein junges Masdchen verliebt sich in ihn. Es stellt sich heraus, dass es seine eigene Tochter ist, von deren Existenz er nichts gewusst hat. Hineingezogen in das Starkste, was das menschliche Leben an irrationalen Einbruchen zu beiten hat, bricht sein frohgemuter Rationalismus zusammen. [Das Autor] sieht sein verfehltes Leben and nimmt den Tod in seine Welt auf.-Darmstadter Echo

Die Schwierigen; oder, J'adore ce qui me brûle by Max Frisch( Book )

115 editions published between 1942 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 667 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

Triptychon : drei szenische Bilder by Max Frisch( Book )

36 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in German and Undetermined and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schweizer Autor (1911-1991). - Auch wenn die Vorstellung eines Lebens nach dem Tod als unhaltbar bezeichnet wird, so bleibt eine Vorstellung von Ewigkeit, der Tod als Mystifikation: daß der Tod letztlich die Wahrheit über unser Leben ist. Triptychon besteht aus drei Bildern, die nicht Stationen einer dramatischen Handlung sind, sondern drei szenische Aspekte zum Thema geben. Das erste: unsere gesellschaftliche Verlegenheit beim Ableben eines Menschen. Das zweite: die Toten unter sich, ihre langsam versiegenden Gespräche am Styx, wo es die Ewigkeit des Gewesenen, aber keine Erwartung gibt. Das dritte: der Lebende in der unlösbaren Beziehung zum toten Partner, der, was immer der Lebende tue, nicht umzudenken vermag

Montauk by Max Frisch( Book )

158 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Frisch's candid story of his affair with a young woman illuminates a lifetime of relationships. Casting himself as both subject and observer, Frisch reflects on his marriages, children, friendships, and careers; a holiday weekend in Long Island is a trigger to recount and question events and aspects of his own life, along with creeping fears of mortality. He paints a bittersweet portrait that is sometimes painful and sometimes humorous, but always affecting. Emotionally raw and formally innovative, Frisch's novel collapses the distinction between art and life, but leaves the reader with a richer understanding of both
