Le planétarium, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

209 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 1,974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The many narratives of The Planetarium, told from various points of view, revolve around a seemingly simple conceit: a young man has his heart and ambition set on his aunt's large apartment. But, as in Sarraute's other books, this plot forms only the surface of what is really happening. Instead, Sarraute focuses on the emotional lives and internal thoughts of her characters in a way that goes beyond what Virginia Woolf did years before. The spite the young man feels toward his mother-in-law for offering him and his wife cheap chairs for their apartment; the terror inspired during a confrontation between the same young man and his aunt; and the need for approval he feels when he's around his Gertrude Stein-like literary icon are some of the many internal conflicts that move the narrative forward through the minds of the conflicted and clashing characters. Always deeply engaging, The Planetarium uses a simple plot to reveal the disparity between the way we see ourselves and the way others see us."--Publisher's website

Portrait d'un inconnu, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

134 editions published between 1948 and 2005 in 7 languages and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major work of avant-garde literature, first published by Braziller in 1958, Nathalie Sarraute probes deeply into the nature of human relationships through her depiction of an elderly father and his spinster daughter. In his preface to Portrait of a Man Unknown, Jean-Paul Sartre applauded Sarraute for writing an "anti-novel," one that resists the traditional premises of plot and character. The narrator, a neurotic neighbor obsessed with the pair, shows the persistence of a sleuth, taking every opportunity to snoop and eavesdrop. He follows the couple's every step, awaiting the final explosion: the ultimate confrontation between the two characters over money necessary for the daughter's medical needs.
Martereau : roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

138 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathalie Sarraute's second novel explores a young man's obsessions with the hypocrisies and pretensions of the adult world. He becomes interested in Martereau, his uncle's devoted friend and business associate who seems like a trustworthy, benign, self-sufficient man until his possibly ulterior motives are partially exposed by his suspect behavior concerning a shady real-estate deal.--[book cover]
Do you hear them? : a novel by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

56 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The setting of Nathalie Sarraute's Do You Hear Them? is a dinner conversation between a father and his old friend about a recently acquired pre-Columbian statue. As they discuss the merits of the piece and art in general, the father hears his children upstairs, giggling. This mirth is barbaric and devastating to the father, for in their laughter he hears them mocking his "old fashioned" viewpoint and the energy he wastes on collecting lifeless objects. In his mind, they have no respect for what has been of greatest importance to him in his life."--Jacket

Ils sont tout raides... comme inanimés... Ils sont emmaillotés soigneusement, entourés de bandelettes, sur leur visage des masques peints ont été posés
L'usage de la parole by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

50 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic later work from French novelist Nathalie Sarraute, one finds a "delectably austere, beady-eyed book.... Phrases that give rise to the scenes or episodes are ordinary enough until Sarraute imagines for them a context which turns them from bland civilities into weapons of psychological warfare. Friends meet and converse, in a cafe or in the street, and are all sociability; except underneath, where the best of friends can be the most savage of opponents. Sarraute resorts sardonically to metaphor to indicate what words will not capture: the shameful and ineffable animosities that...imperil our urbanity"--The Times Literary Supplement

Considered one of the major French writers of our century, Nathalie Sarraute is the author of several novels, plays, and essays, as well as of Childhood, her autobiography.
