Bericht über Bruno : Roman by Joseph Breitbach( Book )

60 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in German and English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two main characters in this novel represent two generations and two ethical and political positions that are irreconcilably opposed to one another--conservative liberalism and terrorism. The story is told from the perspective of the minister of the interior of a small monarchy, who has just been brought down due to the wheelings and dealings of his grandson Bruno Collignon. He now accounts to himself for his life and his relationship with his grandson. We learn of the merciless power struggle between the two opposing characters, in which the whole apparatus of state is finally brought into play in order to fight out a family conflict
Report on Bruno by Joseph Breitbach( Book )

11 editions published between 1964 and 1967 in English and German and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The manuscript of a novel on which Joseph Breitbach worked for so many years and which he finished in 1937, entitled "Clemens", was lost during the Second World War. Thomas Mann, who had read the first chapter, was so impressed with it that he published it in his magazine "Mass und Wert" and thus made it possible for it to be reissued in German and in French. The loss so deeply affected Breitbach that he did not resume his literary activities until many years later. "Report on Bruno" is Breitbach's first novel since "Clemens."

"Du bist, mon cher ami, ein Erzähler von Gnaden", befand Golo Mann in einem Brief an Joseph Breitbach, "und hättest in Deinem Leben wohl noch mehr erzählen sollen."--In Breitbachs erstem Zyklus von Erzählungen, "Rot gegen Rot" (1929), tritt uns die Welt der Angestellten, wie sie Siegfried Kracauer nur wenig später beschreiben sollte, unmittelbar vor Augen. Diese Szenen aus dem Werktag der kleinen Leute waren aus ureigenster Anschauung entstanden, hatte Breitbach doch selbst mehrere Jahre in den Buchabteilungen großer Warenhäuser gearbeitet und dort Einblicke erhalten, deren plastische Schilderung ihn schließlich seine Stellung kosten sollte: Zu lebensecht waren wohl die Portraits des Personals geraten, von den Verkäuferinnen und verführten Lehrmädchen über den kommunistischen Liftjungen bis hin zum misstrauischen Direktor und dessen intrigierenden Stellvertreter. Eifersucht, Missgunst, Neid, Scheinheiligkeit, Betrug und Anmaßung werden hier in all ihren Facetten sichtbar, und doch bleibt der Ton immer leicht, ist die humorvolle Sympathie des Autors für seine Figuren in jeder Zeile spürbar. Max Brod lobte: "Die Tatsachen sprechen oft einen Argot, der gelernt sein will. Aus diesem Buch eines jungen Erzählers ist viel zu lernen." - Neben "Rot gegen Rot" (1929) enthält der Band die Erzählungen aus "Die Rabenschlacht" (1973), die Erzählung "Lärm" und das Fragment "Clemens."

Publicada por primera vez en 1962, en plena guerra fría y choque ideológico de bloques. Un delicado momento para el tema de esta novela, que no es otro que la incompetencia sustancial, estructural, constitutiva, genética, original, o como quieran llamarla, de los políticos profesionales que nunca se han dedicado seriamente a otra cosa, ya sea una carrera civil en la que hayan brillado o una empresa sacada adelante
