Flights by Olga Tokarczuk( Book )

81 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seventeenth-century Dutch anatomist discovers the Achilles tendon by dissecting his own amputated leg. Chopin's heart is carried back to Warsaw in secret by his adoring sister. A woman must return to her native Poland in order to poison her terminally ill high school sweetheart, and a young man slowly descends into madness when his wife and child mysteriously vanish during a vacation and just as suddenly reappear. Through these brilliantly imagined characters and stories, interwoven with haunting, playful, and revelatory meditations, Flights explores what it means to be a traveler, a wanderer, a body in motion not only through space but through time. Where are you from? Where are you coming in from? Where are you going? we call to the traveler. Enchanting, unsettling, and wholly original, Flights is a master storyteller's answer

"Nowa Ruda is a small town in Silesia, an area that has been a part of Poland, Germany, and the former Czechoslovakia in the past. When the narrator moves into the area, she and discovers everyone--and everything--has its own story. With the help of Marta, her enigmatic neighbor, the narrator accumulates these stories, tracing the history of Nowa Ruda from the founding of the town to the lives of its saints, from the caller who wins the radio quiz every day to the tale of the man who causes international tension when he dies on the border, one leg on the Polish side, the other on the Czech side. Each of the stories represents a brick and they interlock to reveal the immense monument that is the town. What emerges is the message that the history of any place--no matter how humble--is limitless, that by describing or digging at the roots of a life, a house, or a neighborhood, one can see all the connections, not only with one's self and one's dreams but also with all of the universe."--Amazon.com

Familien Eltzner, med mor og far og åtte barn sitter pent rundt middagsbordet. Plutselig faller fjortenårige Erna besvimt i gulvet. Vi befinner oss i Breslau (nå den polske byen Wroclaw) og året er 1908. Erna forteller sin mor at hun så et syn, en mann som moren mener må ha vært Ernas morfar. Moren har en sterk hang til okkultisme og spiritisme, i likhet med mange andre i dette miljøet på denne tiden - og erklærer med bevrende begeistring at datteren er et medium, og inviterer familie, venner og leger til en spiritistisk seanse. Erna innfrir alles forventninger, og i en periode er Erna midtpunkt for en serie merkverdige tildragelser, pirrende og skremmende. Så inntrer en plutselig forandring. Erna Eltzners oppsiktsvekkende historie handler også om den smertelige overgangen fra beskyttet barn til gryende voksen, om den bunnløse ensomhet man kan oppleve idet uskyldstilstanden brister og en ny sinnstilstand gryr. Dette er den polske forfatterens første bok på norsk

"Jeden z najstarszych mitów w historii ludzkości w nowej, współczesnej odsłonie. Uwalniająca wyobraźnię, nowoczesna powieść. Olga Tokarczuk uwspółcześnia mit pochodzący sprzed niemal czterech tysięcy lat - historię o sumeryjskiej bogini Inannie, która zstąpiła do krainy zmarłych. Z rozmachem stwarza różnobarwną, rozpisaną na wiele głosów opowieść, w której wizja nowoczesności splata się z tym, co uniwersalne - ponadczasową, głęboko ludzką historią o przezwyciężaniu śmierci."--

WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZEAS FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMESA visionary work of fiction by "A writer on the level of W. G. Sebald" (Annie Proulx)"A magnificent writer."--Svetlana Alexievich, Nobel Prize-winning author of Secondhand Time"[There's] no better travel companion in these turbulent, fanatical times"--The Guardian From the incomparably original Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk, Flights interweaves reflections on travel with an in-depth exploration of the human body, broaching life, death, motion, and migration. Chopin's heart is carried back to Warsaw in secret by his adoring sister. A woman must return to her native Poland in order to poison her terminally ill high school sweetheart, and a young man slowly descends into madness when his wife and child mysteriously vanish during a vacation and just as suddenly reappear.

Opowiadania bizarne by Olga Tokarczuk( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in Polish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pochodzące z języka francuskiego słowo „bizarre” znaczy: dziwny, zmienny, ale też śmieszny i niezwykły. Taka właśnie – zadziwiająca i wymykająca się wszelkim kategoriom – jest najnowsza książka Olgi Tokarczuk. Dziesięć opowiadań. Każde z nich toczy się w innej przestrzeni. Wołyń w epoce potopu szwedzkiego, współczesna Szwajcaria, odległa Azja i miejsca wyimaginowane. Czym jest poczucie dziwności i skąd ono pochodzi? Czy dziwność jest cechą świata, czy może jest w nas? Zmienny rytm opowiadań sprawia, że czytelnik ani przez chwilę nie może być pewny tego, co wydarzy się na kolejnej stronie. Olga Tokarczuk wytrąca nas ze strefy komfortu, wskazując, że świat staje się coraz bardziej niepojęty. Obecne w opowiadaniach elementy groteski, czarnego humoru, fantastyki i grozy unaoczniają, że w naszej rzeczywistości nic nie jest takim, jakim się wydaje."--
