The accordionist's son by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

34 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 836 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 )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 669 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
Obabakoak : a novel by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

108 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Obabakoak is a quixotic, gem-like collection about life in Obaba, a remote, exotic Basque village. A schoolboy's mining-engineer father tricks him into growing up, an unfortunate environmentalist rescues deceptively harmless lizards, and a rescue mission on a Swiss mountain-climbing expedition in Nepal turns into murder. Obaba is peopled with innocents and intellectuals, shepherds and school children, while everyone from a lovelorn schoolmistress to a cultured but self-hating dwarf wanders across the page." "A tinge of darkness mingles with moments of wry humor in this dazzling collage of stories, town gossip, diary excerpts, and literary theory, all held together by Bernardo Atxaga's distinctive and tenderly ironic voice. An unforgettable work from an international literary giant, whom the Observer (London) listed among the top twenty-one writers for the twenty-first century."--Jacket

Días de Nevada by Bernardo Atxaga( Book )

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
