Morenga by Uwe Timm( Book )
54 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 603 libraries worldwide
"Morenga is a fascinating story and Timm tells it with an ingenious mix of fact and fiction. Central to the narrative is Gottschalk, an engaging fictional military veterinarian who keeps a diary which blends excerpts from actual historic sources with gripping accounts of everyday life and military excursions. The parallels between events of Germany's colonial period and the undertakings of the soon to arrive Third Reich (with its expansion of the themes of racial inferiority and the untermensch) are drawn with a brilliant subtlety. Morenga is an intriguing novel of scope and significance and it has been well served by Breon Mitchell's fine translation."--BOOK JACKET

Headhunter by Uwe Timm( Book )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 330 libraries worldwide
The first thing to be said about Uwe Timm's novel Headhunter, as every one of the many outstanding reviews on its publication in Germany noted, is that it is a thoroughly engrossing book - "gripping and entertaining from beginning to end" (FAZ). The second thing is that Timm, with a wonderfully light and precise touch, has created a multi-layered, multi-faceted book that addresses the times we live in and, most particularly, the role of money and the financial cannibalism of recent years. The narrator Peter Walter is a charmer, a master storyteller who has used that skill to siphon off millions from clients hoping to strike it rich on the commodities market. Escaping to Spain on the day his trial verdict is to come down, he intends to devote himself to his hobby, study of Easter Island. But a detective is on the trail of the missing millions, and Walter's uncle, an established author, is planning to use Walter's life story in a novel. Walter sets out to write his own intriguing autobiography - from his childhood in Hamburg's red-light district to his success in the world of high finance
