Breakers : a novel by Martin Walser( Book )

63 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English and European novels set in American university communities have become something of a tradition in recent decades as itinerant novelists sojourn here as visiting professors and later go home to tell all. Notable German writer Walser has entered the lists with a feeling, clear-eyed novel of manners, a trenchant commentary on both academia and a contemporary, self-indulgent lifestyle. Helmut Halm, a German scholar in his 50s and a man of wide, general culture is teaching for a semester at a Bay Area university and is greatly taken with the inevitable coed blonde, Porsche-driving, milk-drinking Fran. As much as with Fran, Halm falls in love with California: the eternal sun, the coast and sea, the mellow, laid-back existence. So infatuated is he with its rituals that this repressed Teuton decks himself out in trendy clothes and even undertakes the ordeal of jogging... But eventually even here grim realities intrude. Two shocking deaths restore Halm's psychological equilibrium and end the novel on a sobering note. --Publishers Weekly

A novel centering around a letter from Franz Horn to Dr. Liszt, a colleague whose rise had been reason for Horn{u2019}s attempted suicide. Liszt, experiencing his own impending demotion, tried to enlist the friendship of Horn, but experiences an explosion of hostility as Horn relates the cruel rise of Liszt and the six laws of social physics that forever separate the successful from those who are not successful.

29 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appearing for the first time in English, this masterful novel by one of the foremost figures of postwar German literature is an indelible portrait of Nazism slowly overtaking and poisoning a small town. Semi-autobiographical, it is also a remarkably vivid account of a childhood fraught with troubles, yet full of remembered love and touched by miracle. In a provincial town on Lake Constance, Johann basks in the affection of the colorful staff and regulars at the Station Restaurant. Though his parents struggle to make ends meet, around him the world is rich in mystery: the attraction of girls; the power of words and his gift for music; his rivalry with his best friend, Adolf, son of the local Brownshirt leader; a circus that comes to town bringing Anita, whose love he and Adolf compete to win. But in these hard times, with businesses failing all around them and life savings gone in an instant, people whisper that only Hitler can save them. As the Nazis gradually infiltrate the churches, the school, the youth organizations-even the restaurant-and come to power, we see through Johann's eyes how the voices of dissent are silenced one by one, until war begins the body count that will include his beloved older brother"--

Die Luftangriffe auf Dresden am 13. Februar 1945 erschüttern nicht nur eine ganze Stadt, sondern auch das Innenleben des noch jungen Alfred Dorns. Das Verbrennen der Fotoalben der Familie - angesichts Tausender toter Menschen, die die Stadt zu beklagen hat, wahrhaft eine Lappalie - sind für Alfred zutiefst schmerzhaft. Um über diesen, für ihn so dramatischen Verlust hinwegzukommen, beginnt er, sich um Ersatz für das Verlorene zu kümmern. Doch es bleibt nicht bei der Suche nach den verlustig gegangenen Bildern, denn für Alfred Dorn wird es zur wichtigsten Aufgabe in seinem Leben, alles vor dem Vergessen zu bewahren. Gegenstände, Bilder, gar einzelne Sätze dürfen nicht der Vergessenheit zum Opfer fallen. Hierfür recherchiert, forscht und archiviert er unermüdlich. Er hängt an der Vergangenheit wie an der Liebe zu seiner Mutter, die Gegenwart oder die Zukunft sind für ihn fast unerträgliche Zustände
