Piranesi's dream : a novel by Gerhard Köpf( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fictional autobiography of the famed eighteenth-century Italian engraver Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Piranesi's Dream draws from fact to imagine the embittered, eccentric, yet fantastically creative mind of this prolific artist. Piranesi, however, is not simply re-created in this time; instead, he travels throughout time and throughout the world, musing about art and aesthetics, attacking his enemies, and ruminating over his thwarted dream of becoming an architect."

Innerfar & Bluff, or the Southern Cross by Gerhard Köpf( Book )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 267 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

Nurmi, oder, Die Reise zu den Forellen : eine Erzählung by Gerhard Köpf( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 249 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
