Der Geliebte der Mutter / Das Buch des Vaters

My Mother's Lover / My Father's Book

Published by Diogenes as Der Geliebte der Mutter / Das Buch des Vaters
English Title: My Mother's Lover / My Father's Book

The same family story told from two different, independent perspectives: Urs Widmer’s two hit novels, now in one volume.

My Mother’s Lover
Clara’s lifelong unrequited love for the famous conductor Edwin, mapped out by her son. A novel about music, money and power, and about reversing roles.

My Father’s Book
He loves friends, women, parties. Most of all, though, he loves books. The chronicle of a passionate life determined by a love of literature. And by his love for Clara Molinari, his wife.

The two novels also tell of the twentieth century’s great utopias, hopes and disappointments.
