The ogre by Michel Tournier( Book )

239 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 2,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic of modern fiction, The Erl-King is a magisterial tale of innocence, perversion and obsession. It follows the passage of strange, gentle Abel Tiffauges from submissive schoolboy to adult misfit - a man without a sense of belonging until he finds himself a prisoner of war, and then a teacher, and then the 'ogre' of a Nazi school at the castle of Kaltenborn. Tournier's masterpiece rivets the reader until the very last page, when Abel meets his mystic fate in the collapsing ruins of the Third Reich

Comment le Père Noël donnerait-il le sein à l'Enfant Jésus ? L'Ogre du Petit Poucet était-il un hippie ? Un nain peut-il devenir un surhomme ?

A ces questions - et à bien d'autres plus graves et plus folles encore - ce livre répond par des histoires drôles, navrantes, exaltantes et toujours exemplaires. [4e de couverture]
Friday by Michel Tournier( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A retelling of the legend of Robinson Crusoe. Cast away on a tropical island, Michel Tournier's god-fearing Crusoe sets out to tame it, to remake it in the image of the civilization he has left behind. Alone and against terrible odds, he almost succeeds. Then a mulatto named Friday appears and teaches Robinson that there are, after all, better things in life than civilization -- Publisher's description
Freitag oder das Leben in der Wildnis by Michel Tournier( Book )

174 editions published between 1971 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine Variation des Robinson von Daniel Defoe. Wie bei Defoe, strandet auch Tourniers Robinson auf einer Südsee-Insel, die er in Besitz nimmt und mit Freitag, dem aufgefundenen Wilden, bewohnbar macht. Tournier zeichnet Robinson so im Einklang mit dem Leben in der Wildnis, daß er - dies im Gegensatz zu Defoe - nicht mehr in die Zivilisation zurückkehrt. Das Problem der Selbstbehauptung und der sozialen Bezüge im Zusammenleben mit Freitag beschäftigt Tournier mehr als die einfachen Abläufe des täglichen Überlebenskampfes. Insofern ist der Roman eine interessante Ergänzung zu Defoes weltberühmtem Klassiker. Auch für erwachsene Leser empfehlenswert
Le médianoche amoureux : contes et nouvelles by Michel Tournier( Book )

43 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une vingtaine de nouvelles et de contes dans lesquels se déploie "l'art subtil du détour et du leurre" d'un écrivain accompli qui joue ici sur les registres du jeu et de l'ironie et affirme que chacune des histoires "évoque un grand sujet classique sous des formes opposées". Des faiblesses (##L'auto fantôme##, etc.) et des textes nourris d'une mince anecdote (##Ecrire debout##, etc.). Pour A. Girard "un ensemble somptueux de saveurs discrètes". Pour A. Rinaldi "pas une phrase qui retienne". Ainsi va la critique littéraire

34 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in French and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il faut deux jambes pour marcher, et pour saisir on se sert des deux mains. Cette évidence a été le point de départ de ce petit traité où les idées s'éclairent en s'opposant deux à deux. La femme sert de révélateur à l'homme, la lune nous dit ce qu'elle est en plein soleil, la cuillère manifeste sa douceur maternelle grâce à la fourchette
