Verhalen over rol die ziekte speelt in het leven van de mens
Homage to the eighth district : tales from Budapest by Giorgio Pressburger( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The vibrant Jewish quarter of Budapest provides the setting for these stories by Hungarian twin brothers -- refugees since 1956 -- that won the prestigious Italian Jesolo Prize. This unusual "composition by two hands" has impressed readers across Europe for its high dignity and perfect artistic control. The Eighth District is the last great center of European Jewry to withstand the Nazis and Stalin (as well as the crushing of the 1956 uprising). The story of its Jews and Gypsies, peasants and market traders, scholars and musicians has remained hidden until now, both to Hungarians and to the rest of the world."--Jacket
Snow and guilt by Giorgio Pressburger( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the title story, four rabbis on a trip through the mountains offer marvellous and revealing interpretations of the similarities between snow and guilt, just before an avalanche, killing three of them, provides the most concrete interpretation of all for the survivor. In other stories, horrors await a scientist who provokes unrequited passion in a young girl; a wheelchair bound philosopher rails at cosmic injustice throughout the events of the twentieth century; and a man who saves a kitten from death unwittingly changes his life through a random act of kindness. These stories, ostensibly reported by the author's former classmates, conclude with a tale of love written by Giorgio Pressburger's brother and fellow writer, the late Nicola Pressburger."--Jacket

Don Ponzio Capodoglio by Giorgio Pressburger( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nel momento in cui la Romania ancora socialista, in base a un accordo internazionale poco pubblicizzato, lo 'vende' alla Germania Federale in quanto cittadino di supposte origini sassoni (ad onta delle varie versioni del suo cognome, che sembrano rimandare piuttosto all'area mediterranea), il nobile spiantato e ingegnere Ponzio Capodoglio, allampanatissimo, viene preso da un'insana mania: vuole conoscere, a tutti i costi, le proprie origini. Comincia così, in compagnia dell'enorme moglie Sieglinde e del gatto Fiocco di Neve, e inseguito (e talvolta preceduto) dall'ambiguo spione-letterato Negrescu, una quantità di viaggi ed esplorazioni che lo portano ai quattro angoli del mondo: rimedierà delusioni, arresti, sguaiate derisioni, espulsioni, bastonate, denunce. E alla fine concluderà che quello dell'origine altro non è che un mito maligno, foriero solo di guai."--Publisher's website
