More Than Everything — My Voyage with the Gods of Love
"Beatrix uses words like she uses paint ... with brush strokes so vivid and rich I feel as if I'm there watching as her story unfolds. I love this book!" — Sissy Spacek
"Beatrix Ost's image are so arresting and so well chosen, and her ability to conjure moods and experiences so extraordinary, that I was constantly stupefied by her mix of poetry and clarity (two virtues that seldom coexist). More Than Everything gives a feeling both of Ost's amazing glamour and of a penetrating loneliness, the loneliness that exists within intimacy rather than the one that exists when no intimacy can be found. And the details are so perfect; it's as if these forty years hadn't taken place, as if one could still see every flower, taste every dish, feel every touch. This is a book of extraordinary beauty and great poetry — really a masterpiece." — Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon
A Piece of Me — My Childhood in Wartime Bavaria
"Imagine a feminine Marcel Proust growing up consciously on a farm in Bavaria during troubled times, delving into the archeology of desire through her parents' love letters, and deftly evoking a fascinating world with the sensitive eye and delicate hand of a skilled painter of scenes and moods and emotions — and you'll be ready to enjoy Beatrix Ost's delicious gift, A Piece of Me. She transports you there to her lost times and world most powerfully, unforgettably. — Robert Thurman, author of Inner Revolution and Infinite Life
