Notes from underground notes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
"Dostoevsky's most revolutionary novel, Notes from Underground marks the dividing line between nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction, and between the visions of self each century embodied. One of the most remarkable characters in literature, the unnamed narrator is a former official who has defiantly withdrawn into an underground existence. In full retreat from society, he scrawls a passionate, obsessive, self-contradictory narrative that serves as a devastating attack on social utopianism and an assertion of man's essentially irrational nature." "Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, whose Dostoevsky translations have become the standard, give us a brilliantly faithful edition of this classic novel, conveying all the tragedy and tormented comedy of the original."

Das Buch Gabriel : Roman by D. B. C Pierre( Book )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 12 libraries worldwide
In seinem Roman "Das Buch Gabriel" zeigt uns der Träger des Booker Prize DBC Pierre unsere Gegenwart, als hätten Burroughs, de Sade und David Foster Wallace sich zusammengetan: als letztes grosses Gelage. Gabriel Brockwell, als Idealist und Alltagsphilosoph dem Alkohol und den Drogen nicht abgeneigt, hat genug vom Leben. Er beschliesst, sich umzubringen, doch halt: nicht sofort. Vorher will er es noch einmal richtig krachen lassen. Seine Reise führt ihn von einer englischen Entzugsklinik nach Tokio, wo er eine Nahtoderfahrung in einem japanischen Restaurant hat, und weiter nach Berlin, wo ein orgiastisches Bacchanal in den Katakomben des Flughafens Tempelhof stattfinden soll - immer dem Genuss verpflichtet, auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Kick. Mit dem Leben fertig und doch noch nicht tot: Gabriel ist im Zwischenreich der endgültigen Gedanken angelangt, dem Fegefeuer der letzten Erkenntnisse. Das Motto: Dekadenz. Das Buch Gabriel ist eine grandiose Allegorie unserer Zeit und ihrer Huldigung des Banalen. Es ist zugleich die unsagbar traurige, unendlich komische und unbeirrt optimistische Geschichte von einem, der lieber untergeht, als sich anzupassen. Und während Gabriel seine Abenteuer erlebt, sehen wir ihm dabei zu, wie er vor unseren Augen auseinanderfällt - und neu aufersteht
