Seven years by Peter Stamm( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alexander is torn between two very different women. Sonia, his wife and business partner, is everything a man could want: intelligent, gorgeous, charming, and ambitious. But when the seven-year itch sets in, Alexander soon finds himself rekindling an affair with his college lover, Ivona. The young Polish woman who worked in a Catholic mission is the polar opposite of Sonia: dull, passive, taciturn, and plain. Despite having little in common with Ivona, Alexander is inexplicably drawn to her while despising himself for it. Lost between his highbrow marriage and his lowbrow affair, Alexander is stuck in a spiraling threesome.--From front jacket flap

On a day like any other, Andreas changes his life. When a routine doctor's visit leads to an unexpected prognosis, a great yearning takes hold of him<U+2013>but who can tell if it is homesickness or wanderlust; a deathwish or a fresh lease on life? Andreas leaves everything behind<U+2013>sells his Paris apartment, cuts off all social ties, quits his teaching job, and waves good-bye to his days spent idly sitting in cafés<U+2013>to look for a woman he loved half a lifetime ago. The monotony of days had been keeping him in check; now he hopes for a miracle and for a new beginning. Andreas's travels lead him back to the province of his youth, back to his hometown in Switzerland where he returns to familiar streets, where his brother still lives in their childhood home, and where Fabienne, a woman he was obsessed with in his youth, continues to visit the same lake they once swam in together. Andreas, consumed with longing for his lost love and blinded by the uncertainty of his future, is tormented by the question of what might have been if things had happened differently

Peter Stamm erzählt so lakonisch und leidenschaftlich wie kein anderer von widerstreitenden Gefühlen und der Sehnsucht nach dem Leben. Sieben Jahre ist ein grosser Roman über die Zumutung des Glücks, geliebt zu werden

Peter Stamm erzählt ungeheuer kunstvoll und scheinbar so einfach von Leben, die nicht gelebt, die aufgeschoben, erinnert und schließlich verpasst werden. In lakonischen Sätzen und unauffällig stimmungsvollen Szenen findet er - leicht lesbar, aber schwer verdaulich - die kaum spürbaren Eruptionen, die sich im Rückblick als Erdbeben erweisen. Die Einsamkeit im gemeinsamen Urlaub. Ein verlassenes Hotel in den Bergen. Ein Mädchen im Wald. Ein Pfarrer, der die Vögel füttert. Die erste Liebe mit Gewicht

Jetzt hat sie Mann und Kind, die sie nie gewollt hat. Erst durch Carmen, die hübsche Lehrtochter aus der Bäckerei, fängt sie wieder an zu träumen. Bruno arbeitet seit dreißig gleichmäßigen Jahren als Portier in einem Hotel. Er war beim Arzt, ein schlimmes Ergebnis könnte ihn erwarten. Noch weiß er nichts endgültiges, es ist seine letzte Nacht vor dem Resultat. Aber es wird nichts sein, bestimmt nicht. Für einen Moment ist er ganz glücklich. Es sind diese Momente, in denen sich etwas verändert im Leben, in denen etwas geschieht, man merkt es kaum. Momente, die der Zeit enthoben scheinen. Eine neue Welt tut sich auf, man erkennt die Sackgasse, in die man vor langer Zeit geraten ist. Und plötzlich herrscht ein anderes Licht

We're flying : stories by Peter Stamm( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Following the publication of the widely acclaimed novel Seven Years comes a trove of stories from the Swiss master Peter Stamm. They all possess the traits that have built Stamm's reputation: the directness of the prose, the deceptive surface simplicity of the narratives, and deep psychological insight into the existential dilemmas of contemporary life. Stamm does not waste a word, nor does he spare the reader's feelings. These stories are a superb introduction to his work and a gift for all those who have come to regard his fiction as a precise rendering of the contemporary human psyche
