All that man is by David Szalay( Book )

42 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are nine men. Each of them is at a different stage in life, each of them is away from home, and each of them is striving - in the suburbs of Prague, in an over-developed Alpine village, beside a Belgian motorway, in a crap Cypriot hotel - to understand just what it means to be alive, here and now. Vibrating with detail and intelligence, pathos and surprise, All That Man Is is a portrait of contemporary manhood, contemporary Europe and contemporary life from a British writer of supreme gifts - the master of a new kind of realism --"
London and the south-east : a novel by David Szalay( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rainey, the hapless antihero at the center of this "compulsively readable" (Independent on Sunday) story works, miserably, in ad sales. He sells space in magazines that hardly exist, and through a fog of booze and drugs dimly perceives that he is dissatisfied with his life--professionally, sexually, recreationally, the whole nine yards. If only there were something he could do about it--and "something" seems to fall into his lap when a meeting with an old friend and fellow salesman, Eddy Jaw, leads to the offer of a new job. But when that offer turns out to be as misleading as Paul's own sales patter, his life is transformed in ways very much more peculiar than he ever thought possible. London and the South-East, which won the Betty Trask Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, is both a gloriously told shaggy-dog story about the compromising inanities of office life and consumer culture, and the perfect introduction to one of the best writers at work today."--Amazon.com
Spring by David Szalay( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James is a man with a checkered past--sporadic entrepreneur, one-time film producer, almost a dot-com millionaire--now alone in a flat in Bloomsbury, running a shady horse-racing-tips operation. Katherine is a manager at a luxury hotel, a job she'd intended to leave years ago, and is separated from her husband. The novel unfolds in 2006, at the end of the money-for-nothing years, as a chance meeting leads to an awkward tryst and James tries to make sense of a relationship where 'no' means 'maybe' and a 'yes' can never be taken for granted"--Page 4 of cover
The innocent by David Szalay( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1948, Aleksandr, a major in the MGB - forerunner of the KGB - is sent to a psychiatric clinic in the Ural mountains to investigate a patient, Second World War veteran Anatoly Yudin - a man long presumed dead. It's 1972, the year of Nixon's visit to Moscow; the Munich Olympics and their hostage crisis - the Cold War is entering detente, and the values that shaped Aleksandr's life become uncertain. Haunted by the past, his Stalinist faith again under threat, he interrogates his memories of the Yudin case, and tries to trace its effects on himself, and on those he loved most."--Publisher description

Alt en mann er by David Szalay( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Norwegian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ni menn. Hver og en av dem på ulike stadier i livet og ulike steder i verden. I en forstad til Praha, i en alpelandsby, i en avkjørsel til en belgisk motorvei eller på et slitent kypriotisk hotell. De strever med å forstå akkurat hva det betyr å være i live, her og nå. Romanen strekker seg fra en ungdoms vår til alderdommens vinter, der de tilsynelatende separate fortellingene veves sammen til én samlet eksistens. Nådeløst blir hovedpersonen i hvert kapittel eldre enn i det foregående. «Alt en mann er» tegner et portrett av den moderne mannen, dagens Europa og livet vi lever i dag. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
