The erasers by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

204 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alain Robbe-Grillet is internationally hailed as the chief spokesman for the noveau roman and one of the great novelists of the twentieth century. The Erasers, his first novel, reads like a detective story but is primarily concerned with weaving and then probing a complete mixture of fact and fantasy. The narrative spans the twenty-four-hour period following a series of eight murders in eight days, presumably the work of a terrorist group. After the ninth murder, the investigation is turned over to a police agent, who may in fact be the assassin. Both an engrossing mystery and a sinister deconstruction of reality, The Erasers intrigues and unnerves with equal force as it pull us along to its ominous conclusion

Mathias, an unsuccessful traveling salesman, returns to the island of his birth after some thirty-five years' absence. Two days alter, a thirteen-year-old girl is found drowned, her body mutilated by spider crabs. The reader's attention is invaded by Mathias's perceptions, movements, and visions, until he finds himself inside the mind of a homicidal maniac. Yet even when the story reaches its terrible climax of rape and murder, there is still some doubt as to when, or even if, the crime has been committed.--Cover

"It is 1949. A special agent of the French secret service, Henri Robin, is aboard a train to Berlin, on a special mission of an undisclosed nature. In what could be Graham Greene's The Third Man or a Hitchcock film, he crosses national borders and shuffles aliases with a false mustache and multiple sets of identity papers. Pulling into the station and preparing to meet his contact, Robin is alarmed by a disturbing glimpse of his own doppelganger. As Robin's time in Berlin unfolds, it becomes clear that nothing is what it seems. A shooting, a kidnapping, encounters with pimps and teenage whores, druggings, police interrogations, and torture arise in a mysterious, ever-more-dreamlike sequence, as an unnamed interlocutor points out inconsistencies in Robin's own story
Souvenirs du triangle d'or by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

38 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A provocative novel by the most influential living French writer, Recollections of the Golden Triangle is a tour de force: a literary thriller constructed of wildly diverse elements-fantasy and dream, erotic invention, and the stuff of popular fiction and movies taken to its farthest limits. A secret door that is opened slightly by an electronic device, a beautiful hanged factory girl, a pale young aristocrat whose blood apparently nourishes his vampiric lover, the evil Dr. Morgan who conducts his experiments in "tertiary dream behavior," the beautiful and sinister women from the world of horror films, and the investigating police, who are not all what they seem to be, are just some of the ingredients of this intriguing new novel by the French master of the intellectual thriller, whose novels and films have effectively changed the way we can look at the "real" world today. Recollections of the Golden Triangle challenges the reader to find his own meaning in its descriptions, clues, and contradictions, and to play detective by assembling the pieces of the fictional puzzle

Un régicide by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

38 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in an unspecified island kingdom, A Regicide tells the story of the statistician Boris who, after the electoral victory of the Church party in the country's elections, decides to assassinate the King on the day he is to visit the factory where he is employed. As the crime is described and relived, doubt sets in as to whether it has ever taken place. Written in 1949 but only published in 1979, Robbe-Grillet's first novel is a disquieting and satirical avant-garde political thriller which bridges the gap between traditional novel and the nouveau roman genre he would later espouse and make famous
