The pornographers by Akiyuki Nosaka( Book )

34 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and French and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subuyan'frantically busy not quite successful professional pornographer of Osaka'is at heart a simple man who wants only to make world a little happier. He is a pornographer with a dream, doing his small best to alleviate the sorrows of mankind, as least insofar as they afflict the wealthy man and large corporations who are his clients (a humanistic point of view not shared by his chief cameraman, Banteki, who is a firm believer in Art for Art's Sake). Burdened by the eternal problems of the small business man (shoddy workmanship, equipment breakdowns, the difficulty of finding decent help, customers who won't pay their bills), Subuyan and Bantaki struggle to maintain their moral and aesthetic standards in an immoral and careless world. With ironic humor and a sharp compassion, The Pornographers follows its oddly endearing hero through a succession of tragicomic encounters'with the rich and sometimes treacherous clients to whom he purveys a bewildering diversity of artifacts and entertainments; with the synthetic schoolgirls he recruits from among Osaka's thirteen Veteran Virgins; with infuriating technical problems (tape recorders more sensitive to the interference of ham radios than to the sounds of love-making in the adjoining apartment); with idiot film actors incapable of following the simplest script. But Subuyan's cheerful humanism prevails against all frustrations'in a novel that is rich in comic invention, unflinching in its acceptance of life, a brilliant modern extravaganza in a classic tradition

The cake tree in the ruins by Akiyuki Nosaka( Book )

22 editions published between 1975 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I am still unable to leave the burnt-out ruins' Akiyuki Nosaka, 2014. In 1945, Akiyuki Nosaka watched the Allied firebombing of Kobe kill his adoptive parents, and then witnessed his sister starving to death. The shocking and blisteringly memorable stories of The Cake Tree in the Ruins are based on his own experiences as a child in Japan during the Second World War. They are stories of a lonely whale searching the oceans for a mate, who sacrifices himself for love; of a mother desperately trying to save her son with her tears; of a huge, magnificent tree which grows amid the ruins of a burnt-out town, its branches made from the sweetest cake imaginable. Profound, heartbreaking and aglow with a piercing beauty, they express the chaos and terror of conflict, yet also how love can illuminate even the darkest moment."--

Nosaka aime les chats by Akiyuki Nosaka( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4è de couverture indique : Nosaka aime bien faire la sieste, l'été, en dégustant quelques prunes confites à l'alcool avec son chat Charly. Il faut dire que son pavillon à Tôkyô en est plein, de chats, l'un blotti sur son dernier manuscrit, l'autre toisant de haut la chienne husky, et dans le jardin se rassemblent les oiseaux, par centaines parfois, ainsi que d'énormes crapauds. Et l'humain écrivain observe d'un regard aigu tous ces êtres familiers, commente, se confie, philosophe, car sa fréquentation des chats lui délivre moult enseignements sur l'existence, le rapport à la nourriture ou à la mort. Ses chroniques au jour le jour, souvent égayées par un sourire facétieux, se font aussi graves pour évoquer les souvenirs de chats hantant avec nonchalance les décombres de la guerre ou du tremblement de terre de Kôbe, énigmes de sérénité
