Tod in Persien by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

42 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 354 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
Lyrische Novelle by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

36 editions published between 1933 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annemarie Schwarzenbach - journalist, novelist, antifascist, archaeologist and traveller - has become a European cult figure for bohemian free spirits since the rediscovery of her works in the late 1980s. Lyric Novella is her story of a young man's obsession for 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 theatre so they can go for a drive. Schwarzenbach's clear, psychologically acute prose makes this novella an evocative narrative, with many intriguing parallels to her own life. In fact, she admitted after publication that her hero was a young woman, not a man, leaving little doubt that Lyric Novella is a literary tale of lesbian love during socially and politically turbulent times

Freunde um Bernhard : Roman by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

26 editions published between 1931 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Das glückliche Tal : Roman by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

35 editions published between 1940 and 2016 in German and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ""Das glückliche Tal"" führt uns die Autorin in einen gebirgigen, hoch über dem Kaspischen Meer gelegenen Winkel Persiens, von Winden durchstrichen, im Angesicht des traumhaft hohen und fernen Demawend. Hier sucht und findet sie Ruhe vor der Unruhe der Welt und den Weg zu sich selbst und zu einem wahren Leben. Erinnernd lässt sie vor uns die ganze Welt des Orients mit ihren Blumengärten und Ruinenstädten erstehen, die sie, wie kaum eine zweite Europäerin, durchstreift und begriffen hat. Magisch bezaubert uns ihre Geschichte in der wundervoll geschliffenen Sprache
Lorenz Saladin : ein Leben für die Berge by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

17 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in German and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 Schwarzenbach schildert das Leben und die Expeditionen Saladins mit grosser Sachkenntnis, Einfühlungsvermögen und Bewunderung für seinen Mut und Unternehmungsgeist. Die Biographie wird durch zahlreiche Fotos von Lorenz Saladin sowie einen Essay von Robert Steiner und Emil Zopfi ergänzt. Steiner hat den Khan Tengri selbst mehrmals bestiegen und ist Saladins Spuren vor Ort gefolgt. Er recherchierte in russischen Quellen und stiess dabei auf dramatische und bisher unbekannte Fakten. Emil Zopfi, Schriftsteller und passionierter Bergsteiger, hat in Schweizer Archiven und bei Saladins Nachkommen weitere Details zu dessen Schicksal und zur literarischen Bearbeitung durch Annemarie Schwarzenbach gefunden.

All the roads are open : an Afghan journey; 1939-1940; [The Swiss list] by Annemarie Schwarzenbach( Book )

8 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
