Half a look of Cain : a fantastical narrative by William Goyen ( Book )
5 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part fable and part rhapsodic exploration of desire and loss, Half a Look of Cain bears Goyen's unmistakable artistic signature on every page. Too far ahead of its time in its swirling visionary structure, this novel was rejected by Goyen's first publisher as not sufficiently commercial and remained unpublished despite extensive revisions. The novel is shaped as a group of "medallions" - a series of related episodes

Laziness in the fertile valley by Albert Cossery ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Laziness in the Fertile Valley is Albert Cossery's biting social satire about a father, his three sons, and their uncle - slackers one and all. One brother has been sleeping for almost seven years, waking only to use the bathroom and eat a meal. Another savagely defends the household from women. Serag, the youngest, is the only member of the family interested in getting a job. But even he - try as he might - has a hard time resisting the call of laziness

Il contient aussi "une étude d'inquiète adolescence, une analyse des troubles qui accompagnent une puberté difficile", comme l'écrit M.-E. Coindreau dans une très bonne préface rédigée en 1954
