"Nous ne vivons plus sous la crainte d'un Dieu, d'une justice immanente, d'un Fatum comme dans la Cinquième Symphonie; non! plus rien de tout cela ne nous menace." Notre monde n'est plus hanté que par des pannes. Pannes de voiture, par exemple, comme celle de la Studebaker d'Alfredo Traps, un soir, au pied d'un petit coteau... Et voilà comment ce sympathique quinquagénaire rencontre ce jour-là son Destin, charmant vieux monsieur qui l'invite à passer la nuit chez lui. Juge à la retraite, celui-ci passe d'excellentes soirées, en compagnie de ses amis, l'avocat et le procureur, à reconstituer de vrais procès. Celui d'Alfredo Traps commence comme un jeu... La Panne, ce chef-d'œuvre d'humour noir, a été porté à l'écran en 1972 par Ettore Scola, sous le titre La Plus Belle Soirée de ma vie

Dans un petit bourg helvétique, un policier modèle est retrouvé assassiné. Baerlach, un vieux commissaire malade, amateur de cigares, de vodka et de bonne chère, enquête sur cette mort, tout en luttant contre la sienne qui s'annonce prochaine. Son supérieur cherche à ménager la susceptibilité des notables locaux, tandis que son adjoint, petit flic un rien minable, mais dévoré d'ambition, tente de jouer ses propres cartes. Dans l'ombre, le meurtrier, genre Méphistophélès, disserte sur le bien et le mal, qu'il tient pour étant de possibilités égales. [payot.ch]

Snow country ; and, Thousand cranes : the Nobel Prize edition of two novels by Yasunari Kawabata( Book )

16 editions published between 1960 and 1996 in French and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents English translations of two short novels by the 1968 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Snow Mountain is a nuanced love story involving a discouraged urbanite (Shimamura) and a rural geisha (Komako). Shimamura is tired of the bustling city. He takes the train through the snow to the mountains of the west coast of Japan, to meet with a geisha he believes he loves. Beautiful and innocent, Komako is tightly bound by the rules of a rural geisha, and lives a life of servitude and seclusion that is alien to Shimamura, and their love offers no freedom to either of them. Thousand Cranes is another love story. This melancholy tale uses the classical tea ceremony as a background for the story of a young man's relationships to two women, his father's former mistress and her daughter
