Le planétarium, roman by Nathalie Sarraute ( Book )
128 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,883 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
Martereau, roman by Nathalie Sarraute ( Book )
103 editions published between 1953 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 1,489 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]

9 editions published between 1973 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 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."--BOOK JACKET

L'usage de la parole by Nathalie Sarraute ( Book )
35 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Transparence, économie, poésie. Dans ce neuvième ouvrage "romanesque" (selon Bianciotti), l'auteure sonde quelques stéréotypes sociaux véhiculés par la parole: "Mon petit"; "ne me parlez pas de ça"; "ton père"; "ta soeur"; etc. Elle décrit la naissance de l'amour entre deux êtres, à la simple vibration du mot "amour", prononcé, libéré, pour la première fois, p. 65-83. Fidèle à sa fascination pour les tropismes, Nathalie Sarraute propose ici, comme l'écrit Bianciotti, "ses visions au ralenti, ses décryptages aventureux, ses mises en scène de drames microscopiques où elle est passée maître"
