The rings of Saturn by W. G Sebald ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A fictional account of a walking tour through England's East Anglia, Sebald's home for more than twenty years, The Rings of Saturn explores Britain's pastoral and imperial past. Its ten strange and beautiful chapters, with their curious archive of photographs, consider dreams and reality. As the narrator walks, a company of ghosts keeps him company - Thomas Browne, Swinburne, Chateaubriand, Joseph Conrad, Borges - conductors between the past and present. The narrator meets lonely eccentrics inhabiting tumble-down mansions, and hears of the furious coastal battles of two world wars. He tells of far-off China and the introduction of the silk industry to Norwich. He walks to the now forsaken harbor where Conrad first set foot on English soil and visits the site of the once-great city of Dunwich, now sunk in the sea, where schools of herring swim. As the narrator catalogs the transmigration of whole worlds, the reader is mesmerized by change and oblivion, survival and memories. Blending fiction and history, Sebald's art is as strange and beautiful as the rings of Saturn, created from fragments of shattered moons." -- Publisher's description
The appointment : a novel by Herta Müller ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I've been summoned. Thursday, ten sharp." Thus begins one day in the life of a young clothing-factory worker during Ceaucescu's totalitarian regime. She has been questioned before; this time, she believes, will be worse. Her crime? Sewing notes into the linings of men's suits bound for Italy. "Marry me," the notes say, with her name and address. Anything to get out of the country. As she rides the tram to her interrogation, her thoughts stray to her friend Lilli, shot trying to flee to Hungary, to her grandparents, deported after her first husband informed on them, to Major Albu, her interrogator, who begins each session with a wet kiss on her fingers, and to Paul, her lover, her one source of trust, despite his constant drunkenness. In her distraction, she misses her stop to find herself on an unfamiliar street. And what she discovers there makes her fear of the appointment pale by comparison

Lust by Elfriede Jelinek ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a quaint Austrian ski resort, things are not quite what they seem. Hermann, the manager of a paper mill, has decided that sexual gratification begins at home. Which means Gerti - his wife and property. Gerti is not asked how she feels about the use Hermann puts her to. She is a receptacle into which Hermann pours his juices, nastily, briefly, brutally. The long-suffering and battered Gerti thinks she has found her saviour and love in Michael, a student who rescues her after a day of vigorous use by her husband. But Michael is on his way up the Austrian political ladder, and he is, after all, a man." "In Elfriede Jelinek's mitteleuropa, love is as distant from sex as the Alps are from the sea, and the everyday mechanics of husband, wife, and child become a loveless horror. Both a condemnation of the myth of romantic love and an angry defence of women's sexuality, Lust is pornography for pessimists." "A bestseller throughout Europe, Lust confirms Elfriede Jelinek as the most challenging writer - female or male - in Europe today. It is a dark, dazzling performance."--Jacket

Bright! : typography between illustration and art by Slanted ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Typography for many artists is loaded with creative potential. How much power of expression is contained in a letter, a word, or a sentence, when these entities, which are very communicative in character to begin with, are put on stage as images and objects? How does typographical information respond to its environment, to graphic complements, abstraction, or visual reversal? Under the curatorship of Slanted, this title presents a collection of pictorial typo-art, focusing on moving ahead. The differentiated spectrum, ranging from culturally rooted to revolutionary and innovative positions, does not leave out any sphere of interest: handpainted signs, tape-art, woodtype, letter objects, typographic sculptures, graffiti, tattoo art, generative performances, experimental type, and much more
The devil's blind spot : tales from the new century by Alexander Kluge ( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 173 stories collected in Alexander Kluge's The Devil's Blind Spot range from a dozen pages to just half a page in length: these tales, like novels in pill form, are arranged in five chapters. The first group illustrates the little-known virtues of the Devil; the second explores love (from Kant to the opera); the third (entitled "Sarajevo Is Everywhere") addresses power; the fourth considers the cosmos; and the fifth ranges all our "knowledge" against our feelings."--BOOK JACKET

The cherries of freedom : a report by Alfred Andersch ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alfred Andersch, whose many admirers included Thomas Mann and Max Frisch, was one of the foremost novelists of post-war Germany. He spent most of the war plotting his desertion from the Wehrmacht. "At a certain moment I chose to act in a way that gave meaning to my life, and from that time on that action became the axle around which the wheel of my existence revolved..."" "When the opportunity arose at last, in the idyllic Italian countryside on the day of the Normandy landings in 1944 and until he was safely taken POW by the advancing American army, Andersch found himself in a wilderness, a place of freedom. The cherries he plucked from a tree were the cherries of freedom, and the taste of them was one Andersch had not known for all of the years of the Third Reich: the taste of freedom."--BOOK JACKET

The sorrows of young Werther, and Novella by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ( Book )
11 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Visiting an idyllic German village, Werther, a sensitive and romantic young man, meets and falls in love with sweet-natured Lotte. Although he realizes that Lotte is to marry Albert, he is unable to subdue his passion for her and his infatuation torments him to the point of absolute despair. The first great 'confessional' novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther draws both on Goethe's own unrequited love for Charlotte Buff and on the death of his friend Karl Wilhelm Jerusalem. The book was an immediate success and a cult rapidly grew up around it, resulting in numerous imitations as well as violent criticism and even suppression for its apparent recommendation of suicide. Goethe's sensitive exploration of the mind of a young artist at odds with society and ill-equipped to cope with life is now considered the first great tragic novel of European literature."--Publisher's description
Propaganda by Michael Hulse ( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Egon Schiele, 1890-1918 : the midnight soul of the artist by Reinhard A Steiner ( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Egon Schiele (1890-1918) - along with Oskar Kokoschka - is the painter who had the most long-lasting influence on the Vienna art scene after the great era of Klimt came to a close. After a short flirtation with Klimt's style, Schiele soon questioned the aesthetic orientation to the beautiful surface of the Viennese Art Nouveau with his rough and not easily accessible paintings. Many contemporaries found his expressive nudes and self-portraits, with their strange movements and morbid colours, to be ugly and even morally objectionable - criticism which culminated in criminalizing the painter as "obscene" and resulted in 1912 in an indictment and short jail sentence. However, not even his harshest critics could dispute however the artist's extraordinary drawing talent
