Most widely held works by William Alexander Gerhardie
Futility : a novel on Russian themes by William Alexander Gerhardie( Book )
76 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 743 libraries worldwide
Hailed by his famous contemporaries including Edith Wharton, H.G. Wells, Katherine Mansfield, Graham Greene, and Evelyn Waugh, who called him a "genius," William Gerhardi is one of the twentieth century's forgotten masters, and his lovely comedy Futility one of the century's neglected masterpieces. It tells the story of someone very similar to Gerhardi himself: a young Englishman raised in Russia who returns to St. Petersburg and falls in love with the daughter of a hilariously dysfunctional family--all played out with the armies of the Russian Revolution marching back and forth outside the parlor window. Part British romantic comedy, part Russian social realism, and with a large cast of memorable characters, this astoundingly funny and poignant novel is the tale of people persisting in love and hope despite the odds.

The polyglots by William Alexander Gerhardie( Book )
63 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 671 libraries worldwide
The Polyglots is the story of an eccentric Belgian family living in the Far East in the uncertain years after World War I and the Russian Revolution. The tale is recounted by their dryly conceited young English relative, Captain Georges Hamlet Alexander Diabologh, who comes to stay with them during a military mission. Teeming with bizarre characters--depressives, obsessives, paranoiacs, hypochondriacs, and sex maniac--Gerhardie paints a brilliantly absurd world where the comic and the tragic are profoundly and irrevocably entwined
