The orange grove by Larry Tremblay( Book )

44 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twin brothers Amed and Aziz live in the peaceful shade of their family's orange grove. But when a bomb kills the boys' grandparents, the war that plagues their country changes their lives forever. Blood must repay blood, and, in order to avenge their grandparents' deaths, one brother must offer the ultimate sacrifice. Years later, the surviving twin - now a student actor in a wintry Montreal - is given a role which forces him to confront the past. Tremblay, an actor and director himself, poses the difficult question: can art ever adequately address suffering? Both current and timeless, written with the sharp purity of desert poetry, The Orange Grove depicts the haunting inheritance of war and its aftermath."--

"Singularly obsessed with his all-consuming passion for Anna, the object of his adolescent desire, the photographer Christophe Langelier is beside himself. Ten years ago, he failed the test of eating a bicycle for her as proof of his love and devotion." "Desperate to escape his unrequited love for Anna, Christophe flees to the Island of Women off the coast of Mexico. There, he sacrifices his former self and begins his transformation from a man possessed to a man confused." "The Bicycle Eater is a comic, surrealist novel of metamorphosis unleashed by hopeless desire, a riotous, colourful burlesque where nothing and no one remain what they seem."--BOOK JACKET

The ventriloquist by Larry Tremblay( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The ventriloquist, Larry Tremblay directs his celebrated mastery of the dramatic monologue to an interrogation of the process of characterization itself. Alone on the stage with his puppet, the ventriloquist introduces his "self " as a construct of characters, along with his "other" imagined characters, to an audience which bears witness to the enormous psychological risks an author must take in the creative process. Constantly walking the dangerously thin edge separating the creation of voice from its appropriation, the ventriloquist struggles to control and shape an imaginary dialogue which we know originates from a single source, but successfully creates the illusion of personal conflict and resolution, success and failure, triumph and despair

9 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in French and English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scratch the surface of any story and underneath you will find layer upon layer of fiction masquerading as fact.

L'impureté by Larry Tremblay( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La romancière à succès Alice Livingston est morte. Elle laisse derrière elle des lecteurs éplorés, un manuscrit inédit, un fils qui cherche à refaire sa vie le plus loin possible de son père, et son mari Antoine, incapable de pleurer sa mort et qui n'a jamais apprécié son œuvre. Pourtant, le roman posthume de sa femme va le bouleverser et le contraindre à faire face à ses souvenirs. Et inévitablement à ses démons enfouis. Car la fiction parfois tisse entre les lignes une toile vengeresse. Variation d'une franchise radicale autour de la manipulation des êtres et de la fragilité des idéaux, L'impureté déploie tout l'arsenal de l'auteur de "L'orangeraie" etdu "Christ obèse"--[Memento]
