Obabakoak : a novel by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

179 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 16 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique and stunning international literary event: winner of Spain's National Prize for Literature, Obabakoak, a work of fiction, is one of only several hundred books to be written in four centuries in Basque, a language understood by few (the author himself had to translate his book into Spanish to broaden its appeal throughout Europe, where it has been published to ecstatic acclaim). Obabakoak means "the people and things of Obaba (a Basque village)," and the narrator weaves a tale reminiscent of Scheherazade's. The village is peopled with rascals, innocents, intellectuals, shepherds, hunters, idiots, and creatures of superstition, and the interconnection of their private worlds is brilliantly evoked. Parody, riddles, texts within texts abound in a book that is playful yet always tinged with melancholy. Possessed of the timelessness of the fairy tale and informed by the lore of the oral tradition - and offering a good-humored spin through metaliterature and intertextuality - Obabakoak is a multi-faceted and rousing celebration of the art of storytelling
The accordionist's son by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

71 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Imaz, the teenage son of an accordionist, begins to suspect his father participated in the execution of villagers accused of being Republicans during the Spanish Civil War. Twenty-five years after the war officially ended, political, even inadvertently political, choices remain deadly, but fear of Franco's civil guard neither darkens the innocence or exuberance of the young nor lightens the guilt of their parents. In Obaba, grudges and friendships are long-lasting and deep, and secrets are buried only shallowly.--From Publisher's Weekly
Seven houses in France by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

39 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year is 1903, and the garrison of Yangambi on the banks of the River Congo is under the command of Captain Lalande Biran. The captain is also a poet whose ambition is to amass a fortune and return to the literary cafes of Paris. His glamorous wife Christine has a further ambition: to own seven houses in France, a house for every year he has been abroad. At Lalande Biran's side are the ex-legionnaire van Thiegel, a brutal womaniser, and the servile, treacherous Donatien, who dreams of running a brothel. The officers spend their days guarding enslaved rubber-tappers and kidnapping young girls, and at their hands the jungle is transformed into a wild circus of human ambition and absurdity. But everything changes with the arrival of a new officer and brilliant marksman: the enigmatic Chrysostome Liege

This is the story of a writer who travels to Nevada, United States, between August 2007 and June 2008, but is also much more. It is a story in which I lived, real time, mixed with memories, images, dreams and recollections. In the arid and hostile desert horizon landscape and green, red and fuchsia casinos in downtown Reno, with its frame and glazed bright lights, led again and again to the reader-narrator-and to that another more intimate landscape, more personal the Basque Country
