Trieste by Daša Drndić( Book )

44 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Haya Tedeschi sits alone in Gorizia, in northeastern Italy, surrounded by a basket of photographs and newspaper clippings. Now an old woman, she waits to be reunited after sixty-two years with her son, fathered by an SS officer and stolen from her by the German authorities as part of Himmler's clandestine Lebensborn project. Haya reflects on her Catholicized Jewish family's experiences, dealing unsparingly with the massacre of Italian Jews in the concentration camps of Trieste. Her obsessive search for her son leads her to photographs, maps, and fragments of verse, to testimonies from the Nuremberg trials and interviews with second-generation Jews, and to eyewitness accounts of atrocities that took place on her doorstep. From this broad collage of material and memory arises the staggering chronicle of Nazi occupation in northern Italy. Written in immensely powerful language and employing a range of astonishing conceptual devices, Trieste is a novel like no other. Daša Drndić has produced a shattering contribution to the literature of twentieth-century history"--
Belladonna by Daša Drndić( Book )

"From the author of the highly acclaimed Trieste, a fierce novel about history, memory, and illness. Andreas Ban, a psychologist who does not psychologize anymore and a writer who no longer writes, lives alone in a coastal town in Croatia. He sifts through the remnants of his life--his research, books, photographs--remembering old lovers and friends, the events of WWII, and the breakup of Yugoslavia. Ban's memories of Belgrade, Amsterdam, and Toronto alternate with meditations on the mental faculties of rats, a depressed arctic fox, and the agelessness of lobsters. He tries to push the past away, to "land on a little island of time in which tomorrow does not exist, in which yesterday is buried." Drndic leafs through the horrors of history with a cold unflinching wit. "The past is riddled with holes," she writes. "Souvenirs can't help here."--
Leica format by Daša Drndić( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman meets a stranger who tells her her identity is a lie. 772 or 789 children's brains rest silently in jars. A traveller comes to a quotidian city, unknowingly approaching her past. This is a bedazzling kaleidoscopic novel, stitching together fact and fiction, history and memory, words and images into a heart-breaking collage that manages to look askance at the blinding horror of history. Ranging across themes of memory, loss, inheritance and storytelling, the author borrows from every tradition of writing to weave together a fragmented narrative of love and disease, in a novel that its very format raises penetrating and unanswerable questions about history, and the processes by which we describe and remember it
April u Berlinu by Daša Drndić( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in Croatian and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U novoj knjizi April u Berlinu Daša Drndić beskompromisno, i prema sebi i prema drugima i prema povijesti, kreće u istraživanje emigrantskih sudbina, sudbina koje su obilježile dvadeseto stoljeće i kroz osobne ispovijedi, kako vlastite, tako i svojih sugovornika, poznatih osoba, ali jednako i takozvanih malih običnih ljudi, dolazi do velike priče. April u Berlinu istražuje povijest srednje Europe, tog imaginarno stvarnog prostora kojega više negoli geografske činjenice određuju ljudi i njihove sudbine, njihovo kretanje, migracije, ekonomske i političke. Ljudi koji idu za političkim i povijesnim odrednicama, koji se iz generacije u generaciju sele diljem Europe, ali i svijeta, pa tako srednje Europa nije više samo geografska odrednica nego mnogo više ljudska mapa. Upravo tu ljudsku mapu koja je obilježila dvadeseto stoljeće, a obilježava i dvadeset i prvo, taj kod zapisan u sudbinama, u ovoj knjizi Daša Drndić pokušava podastrijeti i razotkriti, bilo da je riječ o njoj samoj, i sudbini njezine obitelji, bilo da je riječ o njezinim sugovornicima. Autorica poput kaleidoskopa ulazi u intimu svakoga čitatelja i tjera ga da krene u osobno istraživanje vlastite prošlosti, prošlosti vlastite obitelji
EEG by Daša Drndić( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in Croatian and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andreas Ban, junak Belladonne, nije uspio u pokušaju samoubojstva, već se ostao boriti s avetima prošlosti i sadašnjosti. On i dalje nemilosrdno secira društvo i svoju okolinu, ne boji se i kroči, iako s iskrivljenom kičmom, ravno i ponosito. Ne želi moliti ni prositi, njega zanima isključivo istina, te se ne libi kopati po svojoj unutrašnjosti, po svojim ranama, ali jednako tako beskompromisno razotkriva gadosti i skrivene tajne svih drugih. I dalje ciničan, i dalje na margini koju je svjesno izabrao, Andreas Ban ispisuje stranice prekarijatnog intelektualca današnjice koji je živio neku bolju prošlost

The prince of tides by Pat Conroy( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in Croatian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his most brilliant and powerful novel, Pat Conroy tells the story of Tom Wingo, his twin sister, Savannah, and the dark and violent past of the family into which they were born. Set in New York City and the low country of South Carolina, the novel opens when Tom, a high school football coach whose marriage and career are crumbling, flies from South Carolina to New York after learning of his twin sister's suicide attempt. Savannah is one of the most gifted poets of her generation, and both the cadenced beauty of her art and the jumbled cries of her illness are clues to the too-long-hidden story of her wounded family. In the paneled offices and luxurious restaurants of New York City, Tom and Susan Lowenstein, Savannah's psychiatrist, unravel a history of violence, abandonment, commitment, and love. And Tom realizes that trying to save his sister is perhaps his last chance to save himself. With passion and a rare gift of language, the author moves from present to past, tracing the amazing history of the Wingos from World War II through the final days of the war in Vietnam and into the 1980's, drawing a rich range of characters: the lovable, crazy Mr. Fruit, who for decades has wordlessly directed traffic at the same intersection in the southern town of Colleton; Reese Newbury, the ruthless, patrician land speculator who threatens the Wingos' only secure worldly possession, Melrose Island; Herbert Woodruff, Susan Lowensteins's husband a world-famous violinist; Tolitha Wingo, Savannah's mentor and eccentric grandmother, the first real feminist in the Wingo family
