              Unredeemed Past: Themes of War and Womanhood in the Works of Post-World War II Austrian Women Writers. (Paperback)

              By Press, Ariadne; Krick-Aigner, Kirsten A.

              This book gives voice to experiences by Austrian and Austrian Jewish women during World War II and the Holocaust through a social and historical reading of fiction, creative non-fiction, and memoirs by post-World War II Austrian women writers. Texts by women who were exiled to Ch...ina or Great Britain, girls and women struggling to survive on the home front, activists in the Austrian resistance, and informed second- and third-generation chroniclers reveal deeply personal stories of ordinary girls and women facing extraordinary times. Their stories bear witness to the past and contribute to reshaping Austria's history and its national identity in the twenty-first century. The volume will engage and inform all readers with an interest in women's history and literature, Holocaust studies, and Austrian studies.

              Three Radio Plays
               

              Three Radio Plays (Paperback)

              By Bachmann, Ingeborg

              Each play deals with a certain aspect of our human condition, embedded in the framework of the world around us. In The Good God of Manhattan, for example Jan, a man from the Old World encounters Jennifer, a woman from the new world in Manhattan, where they fall prey to the perils... of love and share the fate of lovers throughout time and place. The Cicadas is the tale of the marooned where the isolation of the island as an escape from the real world is symbolised in the Cicada's song. Though the setting is never stated explicitly in A Deal with Dreams, we assume it is Vienna, the City of Dreams. Here, dreams are for sale in a shady deal offered in the dim light of a pawnshop on a city street. In the end, we learn that the price of dreams is high.
