25 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis Meyer is an overworked aerospace engineer looking forward to a week-long vacation on the Mediterranean. DeMilo is an astronaut and self-proclaimed ladies' man whose behavior borders on the obsessive and voyeuristic. When a series of coincidences and disasters--including a devastating earthquake in Marseilles--brings them together on a spacecraft with an aloof woman they are both strongly attracted to, the two men's flaws and shortcomings emerge as they engage in an underhanded competition to win her over. Brimming with Jean Echenoz's inimitable humor, We Three is both a satirical take on the adventure novel and subtle experiment with narrative point of view."--
