Wings of desire by Wim Wenders( visu )
42 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,983 libraries worldwide
The inspiration for City of Angels and the film which earned Wim Wenders the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival, Wings of Desire is a life-affirming hymn to a divided Berlin. Bruno Ganz stars as Damiel, a lonely, trenchcoated angel who watches over the city, silently comforting its citizens in their hour of need. But when he is captivated by a beautiful French trapeze artist, Damiel decides to trade his gentle, angelic life for the torturous emotions of the secular world. With his divine position in jeopardy, he must choose to either give up love, or lose his eternal wings forever. --Kanopy

Wunschloses Unglück : Erzählung by Peter Handke( Book )
148 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,071 libraries worldwide
Kein Urteil, kein literarisches Denkmal für eine Mutter, kein abgeschlossenes Bild, nach dessen Beendigung der Autor und mit ihm der Leser befreit aufatmen könnte, sondern die Beschreibung einer grausigen offenen Wunde. - Helmut Scheffel - Back cover. Peter Handke's mother, Maria Handke, committed suicide in 1971. Within a few weeks, Peter Handke set about the task of reconstructing his mother's life in the form of a narrative. As he explains in the story, he did this partly in order to come to terms with his own grief, by attempting to make sense of the path her life had taken, and partly to give substance to her existence by creating a memorial. Handke constantly assesses the course of his mother's life in relation to the social, historical, political, and cultural influences to which she was exposed. - Introduction of Manchester University Press edition (1993)

Der kurze Brief zum langen Abschied by Peter Handke( Book )
110 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 877 libraries worldwide
In der Erzählung "Der kurze Brief zum langen Abschied" reist ein junger Österreicher quer durch die USA, auf der Flucht vor und zugleich auf der Suche nach seiner Frau Judith. Er trifft Claire, nimmt, im Anschluß an eine Aufführung von Schillers Don Carlos, an einem Gespräch über das Verhältnis von Bühne und Wirklichkeit teil, erlebt seinen Bruder in seiner naiven Verbundenheit mit der Kindheit und redet mit John Ford über Natur und Geschichte. Seine Melancholie und Hoffnungslosigkeit geraten in Kontrast zu dem anderen Zeitgefühl und zu der anderen Lebensweise des fremden Landes. Diese große Erzählung von Peter Handke ist ein zeitgenössischer Entwicklungsroman, die abenteuerliche Geschichte einer Trennung und spannend wie ein Kriminalroman
The left-handed woman by Peter Handke( Book )
13 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and German and held by 815 libraries worldwide
One evening, when Marianne and her husband, Bruno, are dining out together to celebrate his return from a business trip, Marianne listens to him speak and realizes suddenly yet finally that Bruno will leave her. Whether at that moment, or in years to come, she will be deserted. And instinctively Marianne knows she must fend for herself and her young son now, before that time comes. She sends Bruno away and settles down to a life alone, at first experiencing moments of panic, restlessly wandering in rooms grown stifling. The stillness of the house wears her down, and she starts taking long walks, or visiting with her close friend, Franziska. Gradually, what began as a selfish escape from the prospects of the future becomes in fact liberation. The environment she'd always hated--a no man's land of identical houses, with all curtains drawn--recedes; her relationships with those dear to her become less threatening, less necessary; and Marianne finds a new pattern for her life and the strength to go on alone

Short letter, long farewell by Peter Handke( Book )
14 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 709 libraries worldwide
Short Letter, Long Farewell tells the story of a young Austrian--evidently modeled on the author--on a month's journey across the United States. The book opens in Providence, where a letter awaits the un-named narrator from his estranged wife, Judith. "I am in New York," it says. "Please don't look for me. It would not be nice for you to find me." As the novel proceeds, however, it gradually becomes clear that Judith is pursuing him, not vice versa--pursuing with the intent to kill. He spends a day in New York, then goes on to Philadelphia, where he joins an old flame and her daughter. The trio drives to St. Louis, still shadowed by Judith; partly to escape her (and partly to face her), the narrator strikes out west on his own, to Tucson, where he is robbed by Judith's agents, then up to the Oregon coast, where a roadside showdown takes place and a gunshot echoes over the Pacific. "I seem to have been born for horror and fear," Handke's narrator confesses. As the narrator and Judith maneuver toward their coastal rendezvous, his life itself may depend on whether he has achieved enough--in the flesh and in the mind--to confront the pistol trembling in her hand

A moment of true feeling by Peter Handke( Book )
5 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in English and German and held by 613 libraries worldwide
At the beginning of Peter Handke's novel, Gregor Keuschnig awakens from a nightmare in which he has committed murder, and announces, "From today on, I shall be leading a double life." The duplicity, however, lies only in Keuschnig's mind; his everyday life as the press atache for the Austrian Embassy in Paris continues much as before: routine paperwork, walks in the city, futile intimacies with his family and his mistress. But Keuschnig is oblivious to it all, merely simulating his previous identity while he searches for a higher significance, a mystical moment of true sensation which can free him from what the novel calls life's "dreadful normalcy." Convinced that, if he fails, life's meaning will be revealed to him only when it is too late, he looks for portents everywhere. Keuschnig's search takes him through all of Paris. At every step, his feelings are interwoven with acute observation of its streets, buildings, cafes, parks, sky. It is an intimate and evocative journey, in a city that is at once supportive and familiar, strange and provocative
