Dreams from Bunker Hill by John Fante( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My first collision with fame was hardly memorable. I was a busboy at Marx's Deli. The year was 1934. The place was Third and Hill, Los Angeles. I was twenty-one years old, living in a world bounded on the west by Bunker Hill, on the east by Los Angeles Street, on the south by Pershing Square, and on the north by Civic Center. I was a busboy nonpareil, with great verve and style for the profession, and though I was dreadfully underpaid (one dollar a day plus meals) I attracted considerable attention as I whirled from table to table, balancing a tray on one hand, and eliciting smiles from my customers. I had something else beside a waiter's skill to offer my patrons, for I was also a writer

The hunters by James Salter( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C'est la guerre de Corée et le capitaine Cleve Connell n'a qu'un objectif : descendre cinq avions ennemis et devenir ainsi un «as». Mais l'ascension vers la gloire est périlleuse : le sort s'acharne contre Cleve et une rivalité sans merci s'immisce entre les aviateurs. Après la fougue des premiers combats, le doute et la frustration s'installent. Et pour ces héros modernes, sur la terre comme au ciel, la moindre faiblesse peut s'avérer fatale. James Salter était encore pilote de chasse dans l'US Air Force quand il a écrit ce premier roman. Le sens de l'honneur, la camaraderie, mais aussi la peur de la mort qui vient ronger les esprits les plus déterminés, tout prend corps d'une manière saisissante au fil des pages. Considéré aux Etats-Unis comme un classique, Pour la gloire est enfin publié en France
