War and turpentine by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

45 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this vivid and masterful novel, a Flemish man reconstructs his grandfather's story--his life, loves, and art, all disrupted by the first World War--from the unflinching notebooks he left behind. Short Description War and Turpentine centers on two men distanced by time: a religious painter whose life is changed forever by World War One; and his grandson, a writer reckoning with his grandfather's story. The life of Urbain Martien--artist, soldier, survivor of the incomprehensible--lies contained in two notebooks written before his death in 1981. His grandson, a writer, imagines his way into the locked chambers of Urbain's memory: retouching church paintings as a boy, dodging death in an iron foundry, and, ultimately, fighting the war that altered the course of human history. There is Urbain's father, the lowly church painter; Urbain's wife, Gabrielle, his true love's sister; and Urbain's canvas, the ever-present reminder of the artist he wanted to be and the soldier he was forced to become. Wrestling with this story, the narrator straddles past and present, searching for a place in both. As artfully rendered as a Renaissance fresco, War and Turpentine paints the extraordinary story of one man's life and the echo of its impact resounding through the generations. Translated from the Dutch by David McKay"--
Intercities by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Intercities, Stefan Hertmans thinks about what constitutes identity in present-day Europe and Australia. Looking at people and cities from the periphery, he tries to discover an 'archaeology of streets and faces' which could bring him closer to himself. Set in cities at the margins such as Trieste, Marseilles, Dresden and Bratislava, and in major ones like Vienna, Sydney and Amsterdam, Intercities is about the feeling of being abroad, of losing part of one's self in order to gain a richer life. Mingling travel stories with philosophical reflections, Hertmans's text proves the eighteenth-century observation that every journey is a 'voyage around your own chamber'. His book is a personal statement about living in Europe today which looks beyond the surface to the heart of contemporary urban existence."--Jacket
De bekeerlinge by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Dutch and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hertmans brak in 2013 door bij het grote publiek met zijn roman 'Oorlog en terpentijn'; met deze roman won hij de AKO Literatuurprijs, de Inktaap en de Vlaamse Cultuurprijs voor de letteren. Voor zijn nieuwe roman 'De bekeerlinge' gebruikte Hertmans opnieuw historische bronnen, maar ditmaal vond hij ze niet in zijn eigen familie. Volgens de uitgeverij: In een klein dorp in de Provence wordt sinds mensenheugenis over een pogrom en een verborgen schat gesproken. Eind negentiende eeuw vindt men in de synagoge in Caïro een hoeveelheid opzienbarende joodse documenten. Stefan Hertmans ontdekt de sporen van een voorname christelijke jonkvrouw uit de elfde eeuw, die haar leven vergooide voor een joodse jongen. Hij gaat letterlijk achter deze vrouw aan, die samen met haar verboden liefde op de vlucht slaat en een duizelingwekkende tocht aflegt, opgejaagd door alles en iedereen."

4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Dutch and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Het verborgen weefsel is een verslag van de innerlijke strijd van een veertigjarige vrouw. Wat vraagt haar schrijverschap, waarmee ze overhoop ligt, van haar? En waar is haar verloren zuster gebleven? De kloof tussen haar gedachten en het leven met haar man en dochtertje lijkt nauwelijks meer te overbruggen. Zelfs een reis naar het buitenland en een buitenechtelijke relatie kunnen haar niet tot zichzelf brengen. Met subtiele toetsen wordt een intrigerend portret geschetst van een vrouw die leeft met alle verworvenheden van de emancipatie. Haar melancholie en haar creatieve vertwijfeling leiden naar een onverwachte ontknoping

War and turpentine : a novel by Stefan Hertmans( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An international best seller: a vivid, masterly novel about a Flemish man who reconstructs his grandfather's story--his hopes, loves, and art, all disrupted by the First World War--from the unflinching notebooks he filled with pieces of his life. The life of Urbain Martien--artist, soldier, survivor of World War I--lies contained in two notebooks he left behind when he died in 1981. His grandson, a writer, retells his story, the notebooks giving him the impetus to imagine his way into the locked chambers of Urbain's memory. He vividly recounts a whole life: Urbain as the child of a lowly church painter, retouching his father's work; dodging death in a foundry; fighting in the war that altered the course of history; marrying the sister of the woman he truly loved; haunted by an ever-present reminder of the artist he had hoped to be and the soldier he was forced to become. Wrestling with this story, Urbain's grandson straddles past and present, searching for a way to understand his own part in both. As artfully rendered as a Renaissance fresco, War and Turpentine paints an extraordinary portrait of one man's life and reveals how that life echoed down through the generations.(With black-and-white illustrations throughout.)
