    Born in 1931, the illegitimate child of an abandoned mother, Thomas Bernhard was brought up by an eccentric grandmother and an adored grandfather in right-wing, Catholic Austria. Running away from home at age fifteen, a mere three years later he contracted pneumonia and was placed in a hospital ward for the old and terminally ill. There, he observed first-hand – and with unflinching acuity – the cruel nature of protracted suffering and death. From the age of twenty-one, everything he wrote was shaped by the urgency of a dying man’s testament - and where this account of his life ends, his art begins. 408p.

    In acclaimed German author Daniel Kehlmann's second novel, the caprices and genius of the art world find a home in the remote cottage of aging artist Manuel Kaminsky. The man hasn't produced anythingnew in years, and faltering journalist Sebastian Zollner thinks the story is just the kind of thing to catapult both of their careers into the limelight. It's not like Sebastian has anybody keeping him where he is: he's been kicked outof his girlfriend's apartment by her new lover. The biography project isn't working out at all as expected though, and the hilarity is magnified by Sebastian's lack of art-world savvy and everyone else's oversized egos.

    "The true story of two of the twentieth century's great writers exiled from Nazi Germany to a Belgian seaside resort, and the world they built there: written with a novelist's eye for pacing, chronology, and language--a dazzling work of historical nonfiction. It's the summer of 1936, and the writer Stefan Zweig is in crisis. His German publisher no longer wants him, his marriage is collapsing, and his home in Austria has been seized. He's been dreaming of Ostend, the Belgian beach town--a paradise of promenades, parasols, and old friends. So he journeys there with his new lover, Lotte Altmann, and reunites with his semi-estranged fellow writer and close friend Joseph Roth, himself newly in love. For a moment, they create a fragile paradise. But as Europebegins to crumble around them, the writers find themselves trapped on vacation, in exile, watching the world burn. In Ostend, Volker Weidermann lyrically recounts "the summer before the dark," when a coterie of artists, intellectuals, drunks, revolutionaries, and madmen found themselves in limbo while Europe teetered on the edge of fascism and total war"--
