A void by Georges Perec( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As his country is torn apart by social and political anarchy, A Void's protagonist, Anton Vowl, a chronic insomniac, is unaccountably found missing. Ransacking his Paris flat, a group of his faithful companions trawl through his diary for any indication, for any faint hint, as to his location. All that it brings to light, though, is Vowl's liking (uncannily similar to his author's) for parody, wordplay and dazzling fictional constructs, constructs which continually risk spiralling out of control. And, gradually, insidiously, a ghost from Vowl's past starts to cast its malignant shadow ..."--Jacket

The act of Roger Murgatroyd : an entertainment by Gilbert Adair( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boxing Day 1935. A snowed-in manor on the very edge of Dartmoor. A Christmas house party. And overhead, in the attic, the dead body of Raymond Gentry, gossip columnist and blackmailer, shot through the heart. But the attic door is locked from the inside, its sole window is traversed by thick iron bars and naturally, there is no sign of a murderer or a murder weapon. Fortunately (though not for the murderer), one of the guests is the formidable Evadne Mount, the bestselling author of countless classic whodunnits. In fact, were she not its presiding sleuth, The Act of Roger Murgatroyd is exactly the type of whodunnit she herself might have written

Buenas noches Buenos Aires by Gilbert Adair( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and German and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gilbert Adair's novel constitutes both the exuberant celebration of, and the melancholy elegy for, that poignantly brief period in the early 1980s when homosexuals marched collectively, arm in arm, out of the closet." "Not all homosexuals, however. Adair's protagonist, Gideon, a lonely, horny young Englishman who arrives in Paris at the very beginning of the decade to take up a teaching post in the local Berlitz, is increasingly fascinated by the intoxicating atmosphere of erotic banter and bragging in the school's all-male and virtually all-gay common room. The moment has surely arrived for him, too, to overcome his own chronic timidity and actually do what he has only ever dared fantasise about. Yet Gideon has a secret - a secret he is prepared to share with nobody but the reader, a secret he is finally obliged to confront, with surprising results, when the shadow of AIDS starts to cast its sinister net over the gay community."--Jacket
