One morning like a bird by Andrew Miller ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tokyo, 1940. As Japan's war with China escalates, Yuji Takano, a young man so far spared fighting by ill-health, clings to his calm, cultured life - the company of friends, evenings of French conversation at the home of the trader, Monsieur Feneon, the days of writing and contemplation enabled by an allowance from his father." "But the world begins to close in on Yuji. His father loses his professorship over a comment about the Emperor, the allowance is scrapped and, with the nation heading towards conflict with the Allies, conscription threatens. Then there is Monsieur Feneon's nineteen-year-old daughter, Alissa, a girl with firm ideas about what she wants. Yuji finds himself faced by some hard decisions just when he can't count on others, for they are struggling to save themselves." "Andrew Miller tells a timeless story about growing up and growing free of self-delusions, about following the heart and having the courage to choose what is right. Vividly evoking its setting, he also draws a portrait of a bygone Tokyo and of Japan at a critical juncture in its history."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frankreich, Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts: Im Schloss von Versailles wird dem jungen Ingenieur Jean-Baptiste Baratte von höchster Stelle ein Auftrag erteilt. Er soll den Friedhof der Unschuldigen demolieren, der, mitten in Paris gelegen, Hunderttausende von Toten beherbergt und dessen Ausdünstungen die Stadt langsam vergiften, so dass der Wein in den Kellern zu Essig wird, Fleisch binnen Minuten verfault. Aber es soll möglichst unauffällig geschehen, der Pöbel ist abergläubisch und will die Totenruhe nicht gestört sehen. Miller erzählt diese Geschichte vom Vorabend der Revolution und den widerstreitenden Kräften des Alten und des Neuen in einer kühnen, eleganten Prosa
