To the end of the world by Blaise Cendrars( Book )

Chacun de ses mouvements découvrait ses jambes maigrichonnes de vieille femme enfilées dans des bas illusion couleur chair qui faisaient démodé mais riche, ornementés qu'ils étaient de brillants minuscules sertis entre les mailles de soie et qui pétillaient de mille éclats, crépitaient, palpitaient, grouillaient à même la peau comme de la vermine pour milliardaire. Elle avait acheté cette paire de bas unique au monde à un anarchiste espagnol, un réfugié politique rencontré dans un bar de Montmartre, qui les avait arrachés en septembre 1936 à Notre-Dame de Guadalupe de Badajoz, en Estrémadure, dépouillant la statue miraculeuse de la Madone
Dan Yack by Blaise Cendrars( Book )

59 editions published between 1927 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dan Yack commence comme une parabole et s'achève comme un lamento : Le Plan de l'Aiguille et Les Confessions de Dan Yack furent d'abord publiés séparément avant d'être réunis par Blaise Cendrars. Ce livre de dissonances vire sans cesse du burlesque au tragique, de la violence au rire, du drame à la pantomime. Quant à Dan Yack, ce milliardaire anglais au nom bizarre, il échappe à la saisie. D'abord présenté à la manière de Charlot, il ressurgit sous les traits d'un héros en proie au mal du siècle. Dans le tourbillon des aventures qui l'emportent à travers le monde, une question pourtant ne le quitte pas : est-il possible de changer sa vie ? Et à quel prix ?

Confessions of Dan Yack by Blaise Cendrars( Book )

53 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continuing the adventures of the eccentric English millionaire Dan Yack, this novel centers on tells the story of the protagonist's tender love for the young Mireille, whom he meets in a crowded tabac in a Paris gone mad on Armistice night, 1918. This love transforms Dan Yack's life—he abandons his women and gives up his fast cars and debauchery to marry this convent-educated girl of his dreams. To indulge Mireille's fantasies he launches her as a film star by creating films for her and casting her in wraith-like roles inspired by Edgar Allen Poe. But before long Mireille is struck by a mysterious and fatal illness, the psychological origins of which raise disturbing questions about the nature of their relationship. Whereas Dan Yack's previous memoir celebrated his exploits with malicious bravado, this is a bittersweet memoir of love and loss in which the author's typically earthy, reckless surface is shot through with profound melancholy and a palpable sense of psycho-sexual disturbance."--
