Hotel Honolulu by Paul Theroux( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"Welcome to the Hotel Honolulu, a down-at-the-heels tourist place on a back street two blocks from the beach at Waikiki, where middle America stays and dreams." "Like the Canterbury pilgrims, every guest in this eighty-room hotel has come in search of something - sun, love, happiness, un-namable longing - and everyone has a story. Honeymooners, vacationers, wanderers, mythomaniacs, soldiers, and families all land at the Hotel Honolulu. But the hotel is as suited to being a crime scene as a love nest. Fortunately, our keen-eyed narrator, a writer down on his luck, is there to relate all the comings and goings. He's lost money, friends, house, and family, and he has no experience running a hotel. But all that doesn't stop Buddy, the boozy owner of the place - the last of a dying breed - from signing him on as manager. It isn't long before the hotel expands to encompass the narrator's whole universe. His original plan of escape from a life of the mind becomes something altogether different: a way to return to the world he left, the world of imagined life."--Jacket

Das Buch des Vaters : Roman by Urs Widmer( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In this companion to Urs Widmer's novel "My Mother's Lover", the narrator is again the son who pieces together the fragments of his parents' stories. Since the age of 12, Karl, the father, has observed the family tradition of recording his life in a single notebook, but when his book is lost soon after his death, his son resolves to rewrite it. Here, we get to know Karl's friends - a collection of anti-fascist painters and architects known as Group 33. We learn of the early years of Karl's marriage and follow his military service as the Swiss fear a German invasion during the Second World War, his political activity for the Communist Party and his brief career as a teacher. We are told of Karl's literary translations of his favourite French books, and, most important, the eerie and ever-present coffins outside the houses in the home village of Karl's father, one reserved for each individual from the day he or she is born. Widmer brilliantly combines family history and historical events to tell the story of a man more at home in the world of the imagination than in the real world, a father who grows on the reader just as he grows on his son
Crazy by Benjamin Lebert( Book )

A modern autobiographical coming-of-age novel written when the author was sixteen-years-old. Benni, the protagonist, is partially paralyzed and a serial failure (he's been kicked out of four boarding schools in his short life and has just entered his fifth). So he's a little odd, but he's cool and he finds other strange boys to hang with. Together they set out to experience what they can: girls, booze, sex, philosophy, drugs, sex, books, music, sex₆pretty much everything whatever. For young adult
