City, sister, silver by Jáchym Topol( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the Egon Hostovsky Prize as the best Czech book of the year, this epic novel powerfully captures the sense of dislocation that followed the Czechs' newfound freedom in 1989. City, Sister, Silver is more than just the story of its young protagonist, who is part businessman, part gang member, part drifter. It is a tour-de-force that includes terrifying dream scenes, excellent reportage, Czech and American Indian legends, a nightmarish Eastern European flea market, comic scenes about the literary world, and an oddly tender story of the love between the protagonist and his spiritual sister

The Devil's Workshop by Jáchym Topol( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in Polish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The devil had his workshop in Belarus. That's where the deepest graves are. But no one knows about it.' A young man grows up in a town with a sinister history. The concentration camp may have been liberated years ago, but its walls still cast their long shadows and some of the inhabitants are quite determined to not to allow anyone to forget. When the camp is marked for demolition, one of the survivors begins a campaign to preserve it, quickly attracting donations from wealthy benefactors, a cult-like following of young travellers, and a steady stream of tourists buying souvenir t-shirts. But before long, the authorities impose a brutal crack-down, leaving only an 'official' memorial and three young collaborators whose commitment to the act of remembering will drive them ever closer to the evils they hoped to escape--provided by publisher
