Lyrische Novelle by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

39 editions published between 1933 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a story of a young man's obsession with a Berlin variété actress. Despite having his future career mapped out for him in the diplomatic service, the young man begins to question all his family values under Sibylle's spell. His family, future, and social standing become irrelevant when set against his overriding compulsion to pick her up every night from the theater so they can go for a drive. This novella is an evocative narrative, with many intriguing parallels to the author's own life. In fact, she admitted after publication that her hero was a young woman, not a man, leaving little doubt that this is a literary tale of lesbian love during socially and politically turbulent times

Freunde um Bernhard : Roman by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

Les Amis de Bernhard est le premier roman d'Annemarie Schwarzenbach. Elle le rédige à vingt-trois ans alors qu'elle travaille à sa thèse d'histoire. Elle imagine des personnages de son âge, qui partagent ses aspirations. Bernhard, musicien, grandit dans une ville endormie, entouré de camarades qui se cherchent et rêvent d'évasion. Ardents et sensibles, certains font l'expérience d'une amitié amoureuse, d'autres de la dépendance affective. On suit, en simultané, leurs pérégrinations entre Paris, où Annemarie Schwarzenbach a étudié l'année précédente, Berlin, Lugano et Florence. Le Paris des années vingt est celui de l'avant-garde littéraire et des Montparnos : Bernhard, répondant à l'invitation de son professeur de piano, y côtoie la bohème et noue de nouvelles relations. On ne peut qu'être touché par le regard de l'auteur sur les difficultés "humaines" de très jeunes gens", dont la délicatesse préfigure celle d'un Eric Rohmer, et frappé par la modernité de l'écriture, rapide et cinématographique
Lorenz Saladin : ein Leben für die Berge by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

"Lorenz Saladin. Ein Leben für die Berge", 1938 erschienen, ist die Biographie des seither in Vergessenheit geratenen Abenteurers und Expeditionsbergsteigers. Saladin stammte aus Nuglar im solothurnischen Schwarzbubenland, war von Jugend an von den Bergen fasziniert, bereiste nach dem Militärdienst im Ersten Weltkrieg die USA und Südamerika und nahm an erfolgreichen Expeditionen in den Kaukasus, ins Pamirgebirge und den Tienschan in Kirgistan teil. Nach der Besteigung des Khan Tengri in Zentralasien mit einer russischen Expedition verstarb er 1936 an den Folgen seiner Erfrierungen. Annemarie S

"Christmas 1929: In the elevator of a hotel in the Swiss Alps, the young narrator meets a strange, mysterious woman. A magical moment that changes everything and arouses insatiable desires. Annemarie Schwarzenbach [a woman], openly acknowledges her love for women and thus boldly breaks down social barriers. "Seeing a woman" is full of eroticism, longing and passion." --

Death in Persia by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2021 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the rediscovery of her work in the late 1980s, Annemarie Schwarzenbach - journalist, traveler, archaeologist, opium addict, and antifascist novelist - has become a European cult figure among free spirited bohemians. Available in English for the first time and beautifully translated by Lucy Renner Jones, "Death in Persia" is a collage of the political and the private, documenting Schwarzenbach's intimate feelings and public ideas during four trips to Persia between 1933 and 1939. From her reflections on individual responsibility in the lead-up to World War II to her reactions to accusations from her friends of having deserted Europe and the antifascist cause for Tehran, Schwarzenbach recorded a great deal about daily life in Persia, and, most personally, her ill-fated love affair with Jalé, the daughter of the Turkish ambassador. Chronologically preceding Schwarzenbach's exquisite travelogue "All the Roads are Open", an account of her automobile journey from Geneva to Afghanistan in 1939, "Death in Persia" is the enthralling diary of an astute observer standing at the crossroads of major events in history and a gorgeous new addition to Annemarie Schwarzenbach's growing English-language oeuvre
All the roads are open : an Afghan journey, 1939-1940 by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1939, Annemarie Schwarzenbach and fellow writer Ella Maillart set out from Geneva in a Ford, heading for Afghanistan. The first women to travel Afghanistan's Northern Road, they fled the storm brewing in Europe to seek a place untouched by what they considered to be Western neuroses. The Afghan journey documented in All the Roads Are Open is one of the most important episodes of Schwarzenbach's turbulent life. Her incisive, lyrical essays offer a unique glimpse of an Afghanistan already touched by the 'fateful laws known as progress', a remote yet 'sensitive nerve centre of world politics' caught amid great powers in upheaval. In her writings, Schwarzenbach conjures up the desolate beauty of landscapes both internal and external, reflecting on the longings and loneliness of travel as well as its grace. Maillart's account of their trip, The Cruel Way, stands as a classic of travel literature, and, now available for the first time in English, Schwarzenbach's memoir rounds out the story of the adventure
