Le planétarium, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

121 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,729 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 )

112 editions published between 1948 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 1,474 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 )

96 editions published between 1953 and 2004 in 7 languages and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martereau is narrated by a tubercular young man driven by a compulsion to discover what lies behind fads, especially in relation to the adults and the family around him. He's particularly interested in Martereau, his uncle's devoted friend and business associate. All in all, Martereau seems like a trustworthy, benign, self-sufficient man, but under the narrator's intense scrutiny--and Martereau's suspect behavior concerning a shady real-estate deal--his motives seem much more complex and seedy. In a subtle, skillful way, Nathalie Sarraute explores the difference between those who are wealthy and those who pretend to be so, and the manipulative way in which some people get ahead in the world

Do you hear them? A novel by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

52 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,286 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
"Fools say" : a novel by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

49 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'usage de la parole by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

38 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 822 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."
