Himmlischer Glanz from the Author: Erik v. Grawert-May. Wenn die Sonne durch die Seitenfenster von San Spirito di Firenze fällt, wirft sie markante längliche Schatten an den Säulen der Kirchenschiffe. Säulen, die entfernt an jene riesigen Lamellen vor der großen Fensterfront im Haus 2 der Berliner Staatsbibliothek erinnern. Sie brechen das Licht der Abendsonne so, dass sich das Lindgrün des Teppichbodens in den Lesesälen als noch linder, das Weinrot der Stuhlbezüge als noch samtiger erweist. Mit solchen Vergleichen sucht der 2. Band der Memoiren Hans Scharoun, dem genialen Baumeister der Bibliothek am Potsdamer Platz, auf die Spur zu kommen. Wer hätte gedacht, dass es sich um ein fast sakrales Gebäude handelt. Der Leitung des Hauses wird empfohlen, den damit verbundenen Maßstäben wenigstens annähernd gerecht zu werden.

Uncanny Stories from the Author: May Sinclair. May Sinclair was an innovator of modern fiction, a late Victorian who was also a precursor to Virginia Woolf. In her Uncanny Stories (1923), Sinclair combines the traditional ghost story with the discoveries of Freud and Einstein. The stories shock, enthral, delight and unsettle. Two lovers are doomed to repeat their empty affair for the rest of eternity... A female telepath is forced to face the consequences of her actions... The victim of a violent murder has the last laugh on his assailant... An amateur philosopher discovers that there is more to Heaven than meets the eye.Specially included in this volume is 'The Intercessor' (1911), Sinclair's powerful story of childhood and abandoned love, a tale whose intensity compares with that of the Brontës.
