Invasion by Maxence van der Meersch( Book )

4 editions published in 1937 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on personal experience, survivor testimony, and documentary research, Invasion 14 portrays the German occupation of northern France during World War I. Regarded by critics as Maxence Van der Meersch's finest work, the novel is set in Lille, Roubaix, and nearby villages along the Belgian border, with the front lines just miles away and the shelling routinely audible. An antiwar novel that goes beyond the trenches, this book is not about combat but its consequences, providing remarkable insights on the plight of French civilians and German soldiers as each group struggles to survive. A gripping epic that weaves together a vast range of characters, Invasion 14 provides a sweeping account of life under German rule and explores collaboration, resistance, and the grey areas between these stark choices, foreshadowing dilemmas the entire French nation would later face during World War II. Though published to great renown--and considerable regional controversy--Invasion 14 was neglected after World War II, when national discourse focused almost solely on heroes of anti-Nazi resistance movements. As more nuanced understandings of war and occupation have evolved, Van der Meersch's masterful rendition of life along the Western Front has enjoyed a well-deserved renaissance."--

Pleasures and regrets by Marcel Proust( Book )

2 editions published between 1957 and 1978 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking as his setting the glamour and heady sophistication of fin-de-siecle. Parisian salon society, Proust here presents a series of sketches and short stories depicting the lives, love, manners and motivations of a host of characters. Amorous entanglements, idle vanities and feigned morality are all viewed with a characteristically knowing eye. By turns cuttingly satirical and bitterly moving, Proust's portrayals are layered with imagery and feeling, whether they be of the aspiring Bouvard and Pecuchet, the deluded Madame de Breyves, or of Baldassare Silvande saturated with regret, memory and tragic understanding in the face of death."--Jacket
