Zazie dans le métro : roman by Raymond Queneau( Book )

223 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 2,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impish, foul-mouthed Zazie arrives in Paris from the country to stay with her female-impersonator Uncle Gabriel. All she really wants to do is ride the metro, but finding it shut because of a strike, Zazie looks for other means of amusement and is soon caught up in a comic adventure that becomes wilder and more manic by the minute. Queneau's cult classic was made into a hugely successful film by Louis Malle in 1960. Packed full of word play and phonetic games, Zazie in the Metro remains as stylish and witty as ever."--Jacket

L'Année dernière a Marienbad by Alain Resnais( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature : "[T]his surreal fever dream, or nightmare, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-filled château they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story." -- Container

It begins with a novelist's discovery that his principal character, Icarus by name, has vanished ...

Stories & remarks by Raymond Queneau( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories and Remarks collects the best of Raymond Queneau's shorter prose. The works span his career and include short stories, an uncompleted novel, melancholic and absurd essays, occasionally baffling "Texticles", a pastiche of Alice in Wonderland, and his only play. Talking dogs, boozing horses, and suicides come head to head with ruminations on the effects of aerodynamics on addition, rhetorical dreams, and a pioneering example of permutational fiction influenced by computer language. Also included is Michel Leiris's preface from the French edition, an introduction by the translator, and endnotes addressing each piece individually
