Nurmi by Gerhard Köpf( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in German and English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The narrator in the novel sketches from his memory the vivid portrait of his uncle - called Nurmi by everyone because in his youth he competed against the famous long-distance runner, and was, of course, beaten. Actually, Uncle Nurmi is a retired professor of medicine, a passionate fisherman, and above all a likeably old-fashioned eccentric. On an adventurous journey to the trout streams of Finland he acquaints his nephew, who has just suffered the first pangs of love, with a melancholy philosophy of losing. Only at the end of the book does it turn out that in this way the doctor comes to terms not only with his defeat in sport, but also with a perilous love affair during the Nazi years

Innerfar & Bluff, or the Southern Cross by Gerhard Köpf( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Innerfar, Gerhard Kopf's first novel, describes the life of Karlina Piloti, an eccentric poet and friend of writers, who vanishes into madness. Piloti is based on Ilse Schneider-Lengyel, the real-life hostess of the first meeting of the tremendously influential postwar German literary group, Gruppe 47. Innerfar thus supplies the reader with insight into the workings and nature of that enigmatic association of writers, which observes its fiftieth anniversary this year to considerable attention in Germany. Bluff, or the Southern Cross is a simple story about liberation and the unshackling of the imagination, a story about friendship between the young and the old, about the importance of dreaming of far-away places

Als Gottes Atem leiser ging eine Erzählung by Gerhard Köpf( Book )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gerhard Köpf zeichnet in dieser meisterhaften Erzählung ein sensibles, mit feiner Ironie grundiertes Porträt des so genialen wie sonderbaren Grafen Eduard von Keyserling, der einst zu den Leuchtfiguren Schwabings gehörte. Eine Hommage an einen Verkannten der deutschen Literatur und die Welt der Schwabinger Boheme in den 20er und 30er Jahren. In Gerhard Köpfs Erzählung fungiert der Diener als Erzähler. Inzwischen selbst alt und auch ein wenig kauzig geworden, sitzt er am liebsten schweigend in Kaffeehäusern, beobachtet das Treiben der Literaten und Künstler und erinnert sich an seine Zeit beim in die Jahre gekommenen Dichter Keyserling. Er erzählt von seiner Bewunderung für den eigensinnigen alten Herrn, den er mit Hingabe pflegte, als er krank wurde, und von dem er so viel lernen konnte über das Leben
