The polyglots by William Alexander Gerhardie( Book )

55 editions published between 1925 and 2013 in English and French and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Polyglots is the story of an eccentric Belgian family living in the Far East in the uncertain years after World War I and the Russian Revolution. The tale is recounted by their dryly conceited young English relative, Captain Georges Hamlet Alexander Diabologh, who comes to stay with them during a military mission. Teeming with bizarre characters--depressives, obsessives, paranoiacs, hypochondriacs, and sex maniac--Gerhardie paints a brilliantly absurd world where the comic and the tragic are profoundly and irrevocably entwined
Futility : a novel on Russian themes by William Alexander Gerhardie( Book )

43 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed by his famous contemporaries including Edith Wharton, H.G. Wells, Katherine Mansfield, Graham Greene, and Evelyn Waugh, who called him a "genius," William Gerhardi is one of the twentieth century's forgotten masters, and his lovely comedy Futility one of the century's neglected masterpieces. It tells the story of someone very similar to Gerhardi himself: a young Englishman raised in Russia who returns to St. Petersburg and falls in love with the daughter of a hilariously dysfunctional family--all played out with the armies of the Russian Revolution marching back and forth outside the parlor window. Part British romantic comedy, part Russian social realism, and with a large cast of memorable characters, this astoundingly funny and poignant novel is the tale of people persisting in love and hope despite the odds.
