Every Man a Murderer, published in 1938 even while the author was working on his larger work-The Demons, is a story of personal and political crisis. The political crisis is exemplified by the rise of National Socialism while the personal crisis has its roots in Doderer's relationships, especially his marriage and divorce.
The novel is set in Germany and is monographic in that it is focused on a single figure and his fate, character, love, and death. The narrative is leisurely and thoughtful con

Like many good books, this one is hard to describe. The prose is wonderful, even in translation. The story is a bit complicated. In short we follow the life of a young man from childhood through adulthood, in particular his marriage to a woman whose sister was murdered years before. The main character becomes obsessed with the dead sister and her (unsolved) murder and determines to find the murderer more than a decade after the crime was committed. A good read that will provide much food for tho ...more

Dieses Buch war nicht leicht zu lesen. Gut, ich bin kein Muttersprachler und von Doderer schreibt mit einem schwermutigen, ernsthgaften Stil reich in Wörter. Das Buch ist unaufhaltsam unerbitterlich. Das Lebensroman, ein Bildungsroman der sich mit einem Mord beschäftigt, obwohl der Mord über das Buch nicht emporregt. Ein Tod findet statt früh im Roman der erst viel später mit einem vemrutlichem Mord in Verbindung kommt. Der Roman ist dunkel, trüb; es fängt mit diesem merkwurdigen Satz an: "Jeder ...more

‘Un asesinato que todos cometemos’ como título es un título muy prometedor, que genera muchas expectativas. Lo bueno es que la novela no sólo se queda en prometedora sino que está a la altura de un título tan brillante; ciertamente cumple con todo lo que promete. Es una novela extraña, difícil de clasificar: a veces da la sensación que es una novela de formación, a veces parece la típica novela realista que describe un matrimonio destinado a fracasar desde el principio, a veces es como un relato ...more

Von Doderer, como Musil o Roth, guardan en sus libros un mundo propio al que podría dedicarse una vida de lecturas. Esta novela tiene al menos tres en su interior: una de formación, una psicológica y una policiaca y las tres se suceden con necesidad y caos a un mismo tiempo. El mundo expresionista del escritor austriaco es tan extraño como el cerebro del protagonista, en cuyo interior vivimos durante la lectura de más de 400 páginas de salamandras, trenes, angustias y pesadillas.

сдалась на 50-ой странице: слишком много деталей, на мой взгляд - совершенно лишних. его хвалят за словсеное барокко, но это просто темный лес, по-моему, через который мне продраться не удалось.

Heimito von Doderer lebte fast ausschließlich in Wien. 1916 geriet er in russische Gefangenschaft und kehrte erst 1920 zurück. Er studierte Geschichtswissenschaft. Seit der Veröffentlichung seiner Hauptwerke "Die Strudlhofstiege" (1951) und "Die Dämonen" (1956) gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten österreichischen Schriftsteller.
