Homage to Czerny : studies in virtuoso technique by Gert Jonke ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gert Jonke, a pianist turned writer, avails himself of compositional techniques from classical music. Different characters sound their own themes in cleverly orchestrated conversations. Opening observations are restated at the end by another character instead of in another key. Not surprisingly, the first-person narrator is a composer, a young man who is all the more likeable for his difficulties: his missing girlfriend and his withdrawal symptoms
Abelard's love = [Abaelards Liebe] by Luise Rinser ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The doomed romance of Abelard, a 12th century French teacher of philosophy and his pupil, Heloise, which led to his castration and her confinement in a convent. The relationship is recounted in the form of letters, written to Heloise by their son, Astrolabe
Kahn & Engelmann : a novel by Hans Eichner ( )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A critical and commercial success in German, Kahn & Engelmann tells the story of a Jewish family from rural Hungary, their immigration to Vienna in the great days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, their loves, business ventures and failings and their eventual tragic destruction, recreating a vanished Vienna with humour and humanity. Travelling, in the words of narrator Peter Engelmann, is "the involuntary national sport of the Jews," and Engelmann does much of it: through snowy woods to escape the Nazis to a new life in England, then on to Australia, Canada and eventually Israel. It is also a novel of faith and its attendant crises, and of the strained relationship of literature to the world. Written by an eminent scholar, himself a survivor of Nazism, Kahn & Engelmann is both an entertaining novel and a major work of Holocaust literature, available for the first time to an English-reading audience."--Jacket
