Brighton rock : an entertainment by Graham Greene( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel is a chilling exposé of violence and gang warfare in the pre-WWII underworld. Pinkie, the teenage gangster, is devoid of compassion or human feeling, despising weakness of the spirit or of the flesh. Responsible for the razor slashes that killed Kite and also for the death of Hale, he is the embodiment of calculated evil. As a Catholic, however, he is convinced that his retribution does not lie in human hands. He is therefore not prepared for Ida Arnold, Hale's avenging angel. Ida, whose allegiance is with life, the here and now, has her own ideas about the circumstances surrounding Hale's death. For the sheer joy of it she takes up the challenge of bringing the infernal Pinkie to an earthly kind of justice

Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Ibbetson is a romantic novel from the late Victorian era - poignant, melancholic and deeply nostalgic, with a paranormal twist. The plot makes use of the idea of a shared lucid dream in bringing together lovers who are otherwise separated in waking reality, by class and circumstance. Although a powerful love story, it also makes for a fascinating speculative exploration of the nature of human consciousness and the meaning and "true" nature of life. -- review by Michael Graeme (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1572836.Peter_Ibbetson)

Raabe schreib seinen Roman mit gerade einmal 23 Jahren. Es war sein Erstlingswerk, er selbst ein junger Beobachter der Großstadt Berlin, in der er Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts lebt. Das Buch - zunächst wenig beachtet, wenn auch von kritikern gelobt - ist heute einer der wichtigsten Berlin-Romane. Es ist ein Buch, dass anhand der überschaubaren Berliner Sperlingsgasse die Probleme und Geschehnisse der damaligen Zeit dokumentiert. Kombiniert mit der Wahl einer ungewöhnlichen bildhaften Schreibform, dem ständigen Wechsel zwischen Erzählzeit und erzählter Zeit, sowie verschiedenen Ebenen der Rückble
