'The emperor's mistress had been murdered, and the world had been taken hold of and turned upon its head' Prague, 1599. Christian Stern, a young doctor, has just arrived in the city. On his first evening, he finds a young woman's body half-buried in the snow. The dead woman is none other than the emperor's mistress, and there's no shortage of suspects. Stern is employed by the emperor himself to investigate the murder. In the search to find the culprit, Stern finds himself drawn into the shadowy world of the emperor's court - unspoken affairs, letters written in code, and bitter rivalries. But there's no turning back now...

Booker-Preis-Gewinner John Banville zeigt sich von seiner kriminellen Seite Quirke ist Herr über das Totenreich des Holy Family Hospitals. Er liebt die Abgeschiedenheit der Pathologie, zwei Stockwerke unter dem geschäftigen Treiben auf den Straßen Dublins. Dann wirft die Leiche der jungen Christine Falls Fragen auf. Und Quirke begibt sich, auf der Suche nach Antworten, in die Welt der Lebenden, wo sich die Abgründe seiner eigenen Familie vor ihm auftun. Es ist mitten in der Nacht, als Quirke seinen Schwager Malachy, den überaus angesehenen Leiter der Geburtsklinik, in der Pathologie überrascht – gebeugt über die Akte Christine Falls. Das Erscheinen des seltenen Gastes erweckt Quirkes Argwohn und regt ihn zu Nachforschungen an. Er findet heraus, dass Christine Falls keineswegs an einer Lungenembolie gestorben ist, wie auf dem Totenschein vermerkt, und dass sie das Schicksal vieler junger Frauen im Irland der Fünfzigerjahre teilte. Quirke forscht weiter und gerät mit der eigenen Vergangenheit und dem katholischen Establishment in Konflikt. Die Fäden laufen im tief verschneiten Boston zusammen. John Banville, der für seinen internationalen Bestseller »Die See« den Man Booker Prize erhielt und auch in Deutschland im Herbst 2006 von Kritikern, Buchhändlern und Lesern begeistert aufgenommen wurde, zeigt sich von einer neuen Seite. Unter dem Pseudonym Benjamin Black hat er seinen ersten Krimi verfasst: atmosphärisch dicht, mitreißend und sprachlich brillant. »Ich denke, die Figuren in seinem Roman sind nicht so schrecklich, wie er uns glauben machen will. Sie haben ihre Dämonen, ihre bösen Träume, ihre Angst einflößenden Geheimnisse, aber in ihnen allen ... steckt ein bittersüßes Gefühl der Sehnsucht nach den Dingen, die sie verloren oder aber überhaupt nie besessen haben.« John Banville über Benjamin Black »Das ist der Unterschied zwischen Ihnen und mir. ... Sie spekulieren über Seiten hinweg darüber, weshalb die eine Figur dieses oder jenes tut, natürlich ohne jemals eine Antwort oder auch nur den Hauch einer Antwort darauf zu finden. ... Ich hingegen halte mich an das, was die Figuren tun.« Benjamin Black zu John Banville

Omnibus Films Theorizing Transauthorial Cinema

Omnibus films bring together the contributions of two or more filmmakers. Does this make them inherently contradictory texts? How do they challenge critical categories in cinema studies? What are their implications for auteur theory? As the first book-length exploration of internationally distributed, multi-director episode films, David Scott Diffrient's Omnibus Films: Theorizing Transauthorial Cinema fills a considerable gap in the history of world cinema and aims to expand contemporary understandings of authorship, genre, narrative, and transnational production and reception. Delving into such unique yet representative case studies as If I Had a Million (1932), Forever and a Day (1943), Dead of Night (1945), Quartet (1948), Love and the City (1953), Boccaccio '70, (1962), New York Stories (1989), Tickets (2005), Visions of Europe (2005), and Paris, je t'aime (2006), this book covers much conceptual ground and crosses narrative as well as national borders in much the same way that omnibus films do. Omnibus Films is a particularly thought-provoking book for those working in the fields of auteur theory, film genre and transnational cinema, and is suitable for advanced students in Cinema Studies.

Franz Werfel The Faith of an Exile

Franz Werfel  The Faith of an Exile Author Lionel Steiman

Franz Werfel was born in Prague in 1890 and died in Beverly Hills in 1945, a popular and artistic success in Europe and America. Despite his Jewish birth and upbringing, he was attracted to Christianity at any early age, and although he never formally converted, he celebrated his own vision of it in his entire life's work. The origina sof that peculiar faith and the response it engendered in Werfel's work as he lived thorough the horrific end of Jewish life in Europe are treated here. Werfel was not a systematic thinker, and, while his writing contains much that is philosophical and theological, his eclecticism and idiosyncracy render any attempt to trace the specific origins of his thought or its relation to the work of contemporary philosophers and theologians highly problematic. Thus, this work is neither biography nor intellectual history in the strict sense—it goes beyond, melding the concerns of both genres into a thoughtful, comprehensive portrait of faith at work. Of interest to historians of the twentieth century as well as to students of that intriguing zone that lies between faith and art but is neither—or both.

Prague is the magic capital of Europe. Since the days of Emperor Rudolf II, 'devotee of the stars and cultivator of the spagyric art', who in the late 1500s summoned alchemists and magicians from all over the world to his castle on Hradcany hill, it has been a place of mystery and intrigue. Wars, revolutions, floods, the imposition of Soviet communism, or even the depredations of the tourist boom after the 'Velvet Revolution' of 1989, could not destroy the unique atmosphere of this beautiful, proud and melancholy city on the Vltava. John Banville traces Prague's often tragic history and portrays the people who made it, the emperors and princes, geniuses and charlatans, heroes and scoundrels, and paints a portrait of the Prague of today, revelling in its newfound freedoms, eager to join the European Community and at the same time suspicious of what many Praguers see as yet another totalitarian takeover. He writes of his first visit to the city, in the depths of the Cold War, when he engaged in a spot of art smuggling, and of subsequent trips there, of the people he met, the friends he made, the places he came to know.

Nineteenth-century Europe abounds with conspiracy both ghastly and mysterious. Jesuits plot against Freemasons. Italian priests are strangled with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate black masses by night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies, lies just one man?

September 1941: Bernie Gunther returns from the horrors of the Eastern Front to find his home city of Berlin changed, and changed for the worse. The blackout, rationing, the RAF, the S-Bahn murderer and Czech terrorists are all conspiring to make life very unpleasant. Now back at his old desk on Homicide in Kripo HQ, Alexanderplatz, Bernie starts to investigate the death of a Dutch railway worker, while starting something - of an entirely different nature - with a local good-time girl. But he is obliged to drop everything when his old boss, Reinhard Heydrich of the SD, the new Reichsprotector of Bohemia and Moravia, orders him to Prague to spend a weekend at his country house. It's an invitation Bernie feels he would gladly have been spared, especially when he meets his fellow guests - all of them senior loathsome figures in the SS and SD. The weekend turns sour almost immediately when a body is found, in a room that was locked from the inside. Now the spotlight falls on Bernie to show off his investigative skills and solve this seemingly impossible mystery. If he fails to do so, he knows what is at stake - not only his reputation, but also that of Reinhard Heydrich, a man who does not like to lose face.
