The Nibelungs

The Nibelungs, written around 1200, is the most famous and most influential German heroic epic. It is part of the canon of the great works of world literature alongside Homer’s Iliad or Vergil’s Aeneid and was the basis for countless literary, musical, artistic and cinematic adaptations. Ever since the global success of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, it has also found its way into modern popular culture.

Gretel Adorno / Walter Benjamin: Correspondence 1930 - 1940

The correspondence between Gretel Adorno and Walter Benjamin began in 1930, but only after Benjamin’s emigration to France did it reach its full intensity, standing not only as a testament to the intellectual Berlin of the twenties, but also as a document of a great friendship that existed independently of the relationship between Benjamin and Theodor W. Adorno.

Perversion

The godchild of Rabelais and Bakhtin, Bulgakov and Esterházy, it is a whirligig of forms, styles, and apocryphal traditions – an adventure for readers who view life not as something to lament and despair over, but as something worth celebrating joyfully with a good book.

Twelve rings

In the 1990s, Karl-Joseph Zumbrunnen, an Austrian photographer with Galician roots, travels repeatedly through the Ukraine. The birth pangs of this new state, the incongruous mixture of brutally tasteless commercialization, backward Hutsul folklore, re-Sovietization and Habsburg nostalgia fascinates him.

All The Empty Rooms

In Friedrich Ani’s new novel, »the four« must spring into action: Polonius Fischer (the former monk), Tabor Süden (the returned missing person’s investigator), Jakob Franck (the former inspector, now retired, but still the deliverer of the worst news) and Fariza Nasri (the civil servant with Syrian roots, saved from her banishment to the provinces). All of them must employ their unique methods to solve the murder of a woman and the beating death of a police officer, incidents which receive great attention after igniting social and political debates (coming from the right) about the incompetence of the police, migrant children, east and west Germany, and »the system«.

Naked Man Burning

At the age of fourteen, a boy flees from the southern German village of Heiligsheim. Forty years later, he returns under the name of Ludwig »Luggi« Dragomir. The tough times he has had to live through since leaving his native village are not enough to prevent the constant reliving of something even more sinister: the abuse perpetrated on him and his childhood friends by some of the most influential people of Heiligsheim.

The Book Goldmann

The Book Goldmann is the name Ingeborg Bachmann gave to her great narrative project, which she cherished until the end. This edition renders the previously only fragmentarily available work recognizable as a project of redemptive narration. The Book Goldmann deals with the various aspects of indiscretion, including misunderstood indiscretion that leaves the other alone in his distress. Half a century after Hofmannsthal, Bachmann discovers a social medium in the somewhat indiscrete Viennese conversation, which could have prevented the worst: Fanny Goldmann’s death.

Malina

In Malina, originally published in German in 1971, Ingeborg Bachmann invites the reader into a world stretched to the very limits of language. An unnamed narrator, a writer in Vienna, is torn between two men: viewed through the tilting prism of obsession, she travels further into her own madness, anxiety, and genius. Malina explores love, “deathstyles,” the roots of fascism, and passion.
