Peter Rigaud, in Wien und Berlin lebender Fotokünstler, porträtiert sein Wien - eine Liebeserklärung mit der Kamera: ´´Meine Fotoauswahl weist - so hoffe ich - auch einige Ecken und Kanten auf. Oder wie Clarissa Stadler in ihrem Essay im Buch schreibt: ,Alle Klischees, die es über Wien gibt, stimmen nicht nur, sondern werden von ihren Bewohnern und Neo-Bewohnern lustvoll bis zur Karikatur »herunterkultiviert«´.´´ So bietet der zweisprachige (deutsch & englisch) Fotoessay überraschende Einblicke sowohl für Menschen, die glauben, Wien schon zu kennen, als auch für absolute Wien-Beginner. Clarissa Stadler, Bert Gamerschlag und Michael Frank haben Kurzessays über einige der vielen Facetten der Stadt beigesteuert. Stadler erzählt von ihren Nachbarn - ausgerechnet Deutsche-, Gamerschlag lässt sich Maßschuhe anfertigen und Frank streift durch Neubau, Mariahilf und die Josefstadt.

Berlin Diary
€ 32.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Here is the first uncensored and intimate account of Germany in the Second World War. Here is the private, personal, utterly revealing journal of a great foreign correspondent, in which he tells the things he saw and experienced during the seven terrible years in which Hitler rose to power and conquered most of the continent. Millions of Americans who listened to William L. Shirer´s remarkable broadcasts from Berlin and other European cities can read the things that couldn´t be said through censored microphones. Nowadays, the name of William L. Shirer is virtually a household word among those interested in the study of his era. This is because of the publication in 1960 of his authoritative masterpiece, ´´The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich´´. Shirer had been virtually the only correspondent able to report on the startling events which occurred during the period 1934 to 1940, with the rise to power and eventual domination by Adolph Hitler. Shirer had been near to Hitler during this period and he almost alone was able to report first hand on the startling events of that period. Shirer was the only Western Correspondent in Vienna on March 11, 1938 when the German Troops marched in and took over Austria. Shirer alone was the one who reported the surrender by France to Germany on June 22, 1940, even before the Germans reported it. During this entire time, Shirer kept a diary, a record of events many of which could not be publicly reported because of censorship by the Germans. In December 1940, Shirer learned that the Germans were building a case against him for espionage, which was punishable by death. Shirer did the right thing: He escaped and fortunately was able to take most of his diary with him.

Journeys (eBook, ePUB)
€ 7.99 *

A collection of the great writer´s observations, made during his travels across the Europe he loved so muchWhen I am on a journey, all ties suddenly fall away. I feel myself quite unburdened, disconnected, free ? there is something in it marvellously uplifting and invigorating. Whole past epochs suddenly return: nothing is lost, everything still full of inception, enticement.For the insatiably curious, ardent Europhile Stefan Zweig, travel was both a necessary cultural education and a personal balm for the depression he experienced when rooted in one place for too long. He spent much of his life weaving between the countries of Europe, visiting authors and friends, exploring the continent in the heyday of international rail travel.Comprising a lifetime´s observations on Zweig´s travels in Europe, this collection can be dipped into or savoured at length, and paints a rich and sensitive picture of Europe before the Second World War.Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a poet and translator, then as a biographer. Between the wars, Zweig was an international bestseller with a string of hugely popular novellas including Letter from an Unknown Woman, Amok and Fear. In 1934, with the rise of Nazism, he left Austria, and lived in London, Bath and New York ? a period during which he produced his most celebrated works: his only novel, Beware of Pity, and his memoir, The World of Yesterday. He eventually settled in Brazil, where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in an apparent double suicide. Much of his work is available from Pushkin Press.

´´I wasn´t sure I liked the sound of it. Even my vivid imagination could hardly fathom a place as tight, or dense, or narrow as Shanghai.´´ It´s April 1939 and, with their lives in Berlin and Vienna under threat, Esther and Kitty ? two very different women ? are forced to make the same brutal choice. Flee Europe, or face the ghetto, incarceration, death. Shanghai, they´ve heard, Shanghai is a haven ? and so they secure passage to the other side of the world. What they find is a city of extremes ? wealth, poverty, decadence and disease ? and of deep political instability. Kitty has been lured there with promises of luxury, love, marriage ? but when her Russian fiancé reveals his hand she´s left to scratch a vulnerable living in Shanghai´s nightclubs and dark corners. Meanwhile, Esther and her little girl take shelter in a house of widows until the protection of Aaron, Esther´s hot-headed former lover, offers new hope of survival. Then the Japanese military enters the fray and violence mounts. As Kitty´s dreams of escape are dashed, and Esther´s relationship becomes tainted, the two women are thrown together in the city´s most desperate times. Together they must fight for a future for the lives that will follow theirs. A sweeping story of survival, community and friendship in defiance of the worst threat to humanity the world has ever faced. From the author of the extraordinaryThe Uncommon Life of Alfred Warner in Six Days,The Lives Before Uswill particularly resonate with readers of Jeremy Dronfield (The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz), Anthony Doerr (All the Light We Cannot See), Heather Morris (The Tattooist of Auschwitz), and Costa-winner Bart van Es (The Cut Out Girl).

PAUL FRENCH, ´Shanghai´s champion storyteller´ and author ofCity of Devils ´The Lives Before Usopens up a captivating new world in a war I thought I knew about, a raucous Casablanca transposed to the East, filled with the intrigues of outcasts and determined survivors.´ ?ALEX CHRISTOFI, authorofGlass ´Juliet Conlin brings wartime Shanghai to vividly to life with a wealth of fascinating detail.´? SARA SHERIDAN, author ofThe Ice Maiden ´Chronicles the courage and endurance of two women in wartime Shanghai, separated, then reunited, in a dangerous and desperate place.

The Impossible Exile
€ 10.49 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

By the 1930s, Stefan Zweig, born to an affluent Jewish family in Vienna, had become the most widely translated living author in the world. His novels, short stories, and biographies became instant bestsellers, and his cultural patronage, his generosity, and his literary connections, were legendary. In 1934, following Hitler´s rise to power, Zweig left Vienna for England, then New York, and, finally, Petrópolis, a suburb of Rio de Janeiro. With the destruction of the cultural milieu of pre-Nazi Europe, Zweig´s life in exile became increasingly isolated. In 1942 he and his wife, Lotte Altmann, were found dead. They had committed suicide, just after Zweig had completed his famous autobiography, The World of Yesterday. The Impossible Exile tells the mesmerizing and tragic story of Zweig´s extraordinary rise and fall, the gulf between the world of ideas in Europe and in America, and the alienation of the refugees forced into exile. Zweig embodied and witnessed the end of an era: the great Central European civilization of Vienna and Berlin.
