The tuner of silences by Mia Couto( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henning Mankell Mwanito was eleven when he saw a woman for the first time, and the sight so surprised him he burst into tears. Mwanito has been living in a former big-game park for eight years. The only people he knows are his father, his brother, an uncle, and a servant. He's been told that the rest of the world is dead, that all roads are sad, that they wait for an apology from God. In the place his father calls Jezoosalem, Mwanito has been told that crying and praying are the same thing. Both, it seems, are forbidden. 'The Tuner of Silences' is the story of Mwanito's struggle to reconstruct a family history that his father is unable to discuss. With the young woman's arrival in Jezoosalem, however, the silence of the past quickly breaks down, and both his father's story and the world are heard once more
Kahn & Engelmann : a novel by Hans Eichner( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A critical and commercial success in German, Kahn & Engelmann tells the story of a Jewish family from rural Hungary, their immigration to Vienna in the great days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, their loves, business ventures and failings and their eventual tragic destruction, recreating a vanished Vienna with humour and humanity. Travelling, in the words of narrator Peter Engelmann, is "the involuntary national sport of the Jews," and Engelmann does much of it: through snowy woods to escape the Nazis to a new life in England, then on to Australia, Canada and eventually Israel. It is also a novel of faith and its attendant crises, and of the strained relationship of literature to the world. Written by an eminent scholar, himself a survivor of Nazism, Kahn & Engelmann is both an entertaining novel and a major work of Holocaust literature, available for the first time to an English-reading audience."--Jacket
Good morning comrades : a novel by Ondjaki( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Portuguese and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luanda, Angola, 1990. Ndalu is a normal twelve-year-old boy in an extraordinary time and place. Like his friends, he enjoys laughing at his teachers, avoiding homework, and telling tall tales. But Ndalu's teachers are Cuban, his homework assignments include writing essays on the role of workers and peasants, and the tall tales he and his friends tell are about a criminal gang called Empty Crate which specializes in attacking schools." "Ndalu is mystified by the family servant, Comrade Antonio, who thinks that Angola worked better when it was a colony of Portugal, and by his Aunt Dada, who lives in Portugal and doesn't know what a ration card is. Good Morning Comrades tells the story of a group of friends who create a perfect childhood in a revolutionary socialist country fighting a bitter war. But the world is changing around these children, and like all childhoods, Ndalu's cannot last."--book jacket
