Fault lines by Nancy Huston ( Book )
53 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fault Lines begins with Sol, a gifted, terrifying child whose mother believes he is destined for greatness partly because he has a birthmark like his dad, his grandmother, and his great-grandmother. When Sol's family makes an unexpected trip to Germany, secrets begin to emerge about their history during World War II. It seems birthmarks are not all that's been passed down through the bloodlines. Closely observed, lyrically told, and epic in scope, Fault Lines is a touching, fearless, and unusual novel about four generations of children and their parents. The story moves from the West Coast of the United States to the East, from Haifa to Toronto to Munich, as secrets unwind back through time until a devastating truth about the family's origins is reached

Fault lines by Anne Rivers Siddons ( Recording )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sol is a highly gifted six-year-old; his adoring mother believes he is destined for greatness. Yet he is also unsettling, chillingly un-childlike. He bears the same birthmark as his father, grandmoth- er and great-grandmother had before him. When Sol and his family make an unexpected trip to Germany, terrible secrets start to emerge. Narrated by children in each generation of the family, "Fault Lines" traces their history back through the years, from California to New York, from Haifa to Toronto and Munich. As dormant family secrets are awakened, shock waves reverberate from a hidden past into a fragile present. Domestic in focus and epic in scope, "Fault Lines" is a vibrant, richly drawn and captivating piece of storytelling. It shows what can happen when past and present collide. Birthmarks are not all that can be passed down through a family line

Infrarouge : roman by Nancy Huston ( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Artiste et reporter-photographe, Rena Greenblatt rejoint à Florence son père Simon et sa belle-mère Ingrid pour une semaine de promenades parmi les splendeurs de la Renaissance. Mais l'idylle n'est pas au rendez-vous. Naguère scientifique brillant, Simon est désormais un homme fatigué à l'élocution hésitante, et sa femme -- solide nature batave -- semble peu réceptive aux chefs-d'œuvre toscans. Le couple parental traîne la patte. Et Rena, toute au regret de Paris et de son jeune amant Aziz, s'impatiente. Alors lui viennent quantité de souvenirs, fantasmes et pensées secrètes qu'elle ne petit partager qu'avec Subra, son "amie spéciale", son double, son invisible confidente. Seule Subra sait à quels infrarouges réagit Rena : désir et déchirements de la maternité, beauté et liberté du sexe, émotion devant les corps masculins débarrassés de leurs oripeaux machistes, et que Rena adore photographier dans l'abandon de la jouissance ... Des chapitres vifs et brefs mêlent présent et passé, révoltes en banlieue parisienne (on est en octobre 2005) et insurrection intime, retours du refoulé -- l'enfance émerveillée et endolorie, l'adolescence saccagée -- et mirages de la clairvoyance. Ainsi, infrarouge raconte deux voyages : celui, désopilant, de vacances ratées, et celui, plus sombre et passionné, qui explore les liens et les conflits familiaux, les codes féminin et masculin, les archétypes trompeurs et les vérités inavouées. -- Back cover

18 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Un petit essai biographique, en forme de "rencontre imaginaire" dans lequel Nancy Huston tutoie son modèle - "véritable tissu de contradictions, être protéiforme à la limite, parfois de l'incohérence" - pour mieux s'en approcher, le comprendre et parfois le critiquer. Un mélange décapant au ton très direct, et même familier, d'admiration sincère et "d'intelligente sévérité" (##Notes bibliographiques##)

"Si tu invitais trente personnes chez toi, des êtres que tu as aimés et que tu aimes, pour t'écouter jouer au clavecin, pendant une heure et demie, les "variations Goldberg" de Bach, et si ce concert se déroulait comme un songe d'une nuit d'été, Peut-être alors tous les fragments de musique s'animeraient-ils enfin dans une même coulée, et cela s'appellerait "les Variations Goldberg", romance"
