Sweet days of discipline by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

The story of a fourteen-year-old girl living in a bording school in postwar Switzerland
S.S. Proleterka by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proleterka, she has a violent, carnal schoolling with the sailors: "I had no experience of the other part of the world, the male part." Mesmerized by the desire to be experienced, she crisply narrates her trysts as well as her near-total neglect of her father. A ferocious study of distance and diffidence, S.S. Proleterka bottles at one hundred and eighty proof the "insomniac resentment" and cyclical nature of familial pain."--Jacket
Last vanities by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

36 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jaeggy has come up with seven stories, each at some deep level in dark complicity with the others, all as terse and spare as if etched with a steel tip. A brooding atmosphere of horror, a disturbing and subversive propensity for delirium haunts the violent gestures and chilly irony of these tales. Full of menace, the air they breathe is stirred only by the Fohn, the warm west wind of the Alps that inclines otherwise respectable citizens to vent the spleen and angst of life's last vanities
Sono il fratello di XX by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in Italian and Spanish and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mientras que algunos relatos son bellísimos homenajes a Oliver Sacks, Joseph Brodsky e Ingeborg Bachmann, otros cuentos establecen un diálogo susurrado con animales o con objetos. Sin embargo, el grueso de la obra lo componen historias terribles contadas en apenas cuatro magistrales pinceladas

Il dito in bocca by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

6 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in Italian and Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En el conjunto pintoresco de los humanos, Lung participa de una especie aparte, mimetizada y poderosa, los neutrales. Su poder es real y el libro lo demuestra. Frente a Lung, la joven protagonista de esta novela, los médicos, y no sólo ellos, se quedan perplejos: Lung nunca ha abandonado la costumbre de meterse el dedo e n la boca, contesta a las preguntas mostrando el esmalte de las uñas y relata lúcidamente, con ligereza, los hechos de su vida; pero la claridad es sólo aparente y resulta fácil extraviarse entre sus palabras, por otra parte escasas; en cuanto a los hechos, podrían darnos escalofríos si no nos distrajera el tono ágil, desconsiderado y preciso de la narradora
I am the brother of XX by Fleur Jaeggy( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“This book is twisted and hypnotizing and, somehow, downright lovely. Reading it is not unlike diving naked and headlong into a bramble of black rosebushes, so intrigued you are by their beauty: it’s a swift, prickly undertaking, and you emerge the other end bloodied all over.” (Daniel Johnson - the Paris Review)
