The white king by György Dragomán( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Djata doesn't know what to make of the two men who lead his father away one day, nor does he understand why his mother bursts into tears when he brings her tulips on her wedding anniversary. He does know that he must learn to fill his father's shoes, even though among his friends he is still a boy: fighting with neighborhood bullies, playing soccer on radioactive grass, having inappropriate crushes, sneaking into secret screening rooms, and shooting at stray cats with his gun-happy grandfather. But the random brutality of Djata's world is tempered by the hilarious absurdity of the situations he finds himself in, by his enduring faith in his father's return, and by moments of unexpected beauty, hope and kindness."--Dustjacket flap

Rumänien nach dem Sturz des Diktators. Emma, eine dreizehnjährige Vollwaise, wächst im Internat auf. Ihre Eltern sollen bei einem Autounfall ums Leben gekommen sein. Eines Tages erscheint eine Unbekannte, die sich als ihre Großmutter ausgibt. Widerstrebend folgt Emma ihr in eine fremde Stadt. In der Schule wird Emma nicht nur gehänselt, sondern auch bedroht, denn ihre Großmutter gilt als Spitzel und Geisteskranke. Tapfer erträgt sie die Peinigungen, zugleich aber wächst das Misstrauen gegen die alte Frau. Als sie sich über das Verbot, den Holzschuppen im Garten zu betreten, hinwegsetzt, macht sie eine verstörende Entdeckung. Die Geschichte, die nun beginnt, zieht Emma den Boden unter den Füßen weg: Stückweise kommt die Wahrheit über ihre Familie ans Licht {u2013} und über eine Gesellschaft, in der das gewaltsame Ende vieler ihrer Bürger nie verfolgt wurde. Die mutige Heldin dieses Entwicklungsromans handelt so radikal wie der Protagonist des Weißen Königs. Bei Dragomán sind es die Kinder, die mit ihrem unbestechlichen Sinn für Gerechtigkeit das Netz aus Lüge, Gemeinheit und Brutalität zerreißen. Eine knappe, einfache Sprache steht in spannungsvollem Kontrast zur doppelbödigen Realität und zur Mehrdeutigkeit des Wahrgenommenen. Das Unheimliche, Phantastische ist das Element, in dem Emma nach Klarheit sucht

4 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in Hungarian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trainspotting is the novel that launched the sensational career of Irvine Welsh - an authentic, unrelenting, and strangely exhilarating group portrait of blasted lives in Edinburgh that has the linguistic energy of A Clockwork Orange and the literary impact of Last Exit to Brooklyn. Rents, Sick Boy, Mother Superior, Swanney, Spuds, and Begbie are as unforgettable a clutch of rude boys, junkies, and nutters as readers will ever encounter
