"Dès les premières heures à Manderley, somptueuse demeure de l'ouest de l'Angleterre, le souvenir de celle qu'elle a remplacée s'impose à la jeune femme que vient d'épouser Maxim de Winter.

"In 1937, while working for the London News Chronicle as a correspondent with the loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War, I was captured by General Franco's troops and held for several months in solitary confinement, witnessing the executions of my fellow-prisoners and awaiting my own. [This book] is an account of that experience written immediately after my release, in July-August, 1937 ... My principal interest in writing [this book] was an introspective one : the psychological impact of the condemned cell. From this view point, the political background was irrelevant, and the narrative, as far as it went, was the truthful account of an intimate experience"--Pref. to the Danube ed

King Solomon's ring; new light on animal ways by Konrad Lorenz( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 1992 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has been theorized that cats which present dead mice to their owners, and which play with live mice in front of their owners, are not seeking approval. Rather, they are attempting to teach their oversized, deformed, clumsy, learning-impaired two-legged kittens how to make a living. They are responsible for your welfare, after all." This is just one of the many theories found in Konrad Lorenz's "King Solomon's Ring." In his book, Lorenz shows how some kinds of behavior are governed by the same process of natural selection as governs physical development. Animal behavior is absolutely fascinating. If you've never read Konrad Lorenz's "King Solomon's Ring", buy a paper copy. It may very well change your view of animals for the rest of your life. More and more you will appreciate the complex things that go on as you watch animals. This book is easy-reading and is filled with humor. I recommend it to all ages of animal lovers"--Online review

His French companion is gone, having stolen his identity. For his part, John has no choice but to take the Frenchman's place--as master of a château, director of a failing business, head of a large and embittered family, and keeper of too many secrets
