"The story begins in the ancient Greece of myth, where King Meleager of Kalydon has assembled the sixty greates hunters and one huntress, Atalanta to rid his realm of the supernatural boar sent by the vengeful goddess Artemis to lay waste to his lands. But as the hunters bear down upon their prey a darker tale unfold, of treachery and destructive love. It is a tale that will reverberate in those same hills across the millennia during the final chaotic months of the Second World War, as a band of Greek partisans pursues a fleeing Nazi officer."--Jacket

Ott's sneeze by Lawrence Norfolk( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
"On January 7 1894, Frederic P. Ott, a laboratory assistant of W.K.L. Dickson (the inventor of the Kinetograph) stood before the world's first movie camera and sneezed. The paradox of the forty-five frames of 'Record of a Sneeze' is that it shows no sneeze - the droplets and globules of Ott's explosion were too fast, too many or too small. Having eluded the Kinetograph, the sneeze has spent more than a century in representational limbo; perpetually announced, perpetually failing to appear. In Ott's Sneeze, novelist Lawrence Norfolk and artist Neal White have reconstructed this missing sneeze employing the most recent developments in laser, video and computer technologies. The resulting sequence of photographs of the progression of the sneeze in space is shown alongside Dickson's original forty-five frames together with a commentary linking the two centuries."

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"This book is about the madness of everyday life under a dictatorship. It shifts in theme and time, testing the borderlines of prose and poetry, fiction and non-fiction, history and autobiography - all in the unassuming guise of a children's ABC. Filled with his own striking photographs, Zilahy's memoir gives fascinating insight into another universe behind the Iron Curtain."--Jacket
