"The story begins in the ancient Greece of myth, where King Meleager of Kalydon has assembled the sixty greates hunters and one huntress, Atalanta to rid his realm of the supernatural boar sent by the vengeful goddess Artemis to lay waste to his lands. But as the hunters bear down upon their prey a darker tale unfold, of treachery and destructive love. It is a tale that will reverberate in those same hills across the millennia during the final chaotic months of the Second World War, as a band of Greek partisans pursues a fleeing Nazi officer."--Jacket

Ott's sneeze by Lawrence Norfolk( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On January 7 1894, Frederic P. Ott, a laboratory assistant of W.K.L. Dickson (the inventor of the Kinetograph) stood before the world's first movie camera and sneezed. The paradox of the forty-five frames of 'Record of a Sneeze' is that it shows no sneeze - the droplets and globules of Ott's explosion were too fast, too many or too small. Having eluded the Kinetograph, the sneeze has spent more than a century in representational limbo; perpetually announced, perpetually failing to appear. In Ott's Sneeze, novelist Lawrence Norfolk and artist Neal White have reconstructed this missing sneeze employing the most recent developments in laser, video and computer technologies. The resulting sequence of photographs of the progression of the sneeze in space is shown alongside Dickson's original forty-five frames together with a commentary linking the two centuries."

Jacob's room. The waves by Virginia Woolf( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacobs room" employs the conventions of a bildüngsroman to develop the expectations of a promising young man, only to pull them out from under him. Woolf illustrates what happens when a young man is denied the opportunity to excel and is instead sent to war. This book also serves as an elegy for the missing generation lost in the trenches of World War I

2 editions published in 2016 in Croatian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Godina je 1625. Oko kolibe na osami razdražena gomila vitla bakljama i zaziva vješticu i njezina sina. Dok se iza njih viju dim i plamenovi, Susan Sandall pronalazi put među prastarim stablima Buccline šume, otvara Knjigu i jedanaestogodišnjem Johnu predaje njegovo najdragocjenije nasljedstvo - priču o drevnoj Saturnovoj gozbi, koja se u tajnosti slavi već generacijama ... Tako počinje uzbudljivi, bogati i senzualni Norfolkov roman o Johnu Saturnallu, siročetu koje se od kuhinjskog momka uzdiže do najvećega kuhara svoga vremena. Stranice burne engleske povijesti John će ispisati na svoj način - hranom, a u kuharici njegova života naći će se mjesta za godine obilja i za godine rata, za veličanstvene bankete i za stratišta. Mladić?s demonom u dnu grla?, koji je kuhao za moćnike i siromahe, a hranom stjecao poštovanje i zavist, pomoću nje će spoznati i ono najvažnije - okus prave ljubavi, no da bi ga sačuvao, morat će ustati protiv drevnog proročanstva i ispuniti zavjet koji je dao majci: morat će sačuvati Gozbu

The last window giraffe : a picture dictionary for the over fives by Péter Zilahy( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about the madness of everyday life under a dictatorship. It shifts in theme and time, testing the borderlines of prose and poetry, fiction and non-fiction, history and autobiography - all in the unassuming guise of a children's ABC. Filled with his own striking photographs, Zilahy's memoir gives fascinating insight into another universe behind the Iron Curtain."--Jacket
