"Ruiné par sa maîtresse, Oscar Révolou, un grand notaire bordelais, se suicide. Cette mort fissure la façade en même temps qu'elle révèle les fondations de deux familles estimées. Quand l'argent se retire des maisons bourgeoises, les cœurs apparaissent à sec, et ce n'est pas beau à voir. Une véritable banqueroute de l'âme, à laquelle n'échappent, in extremis, que deux figures du sacrifice : Rose, la répudiée christique, et Pierre, le jeune poète révulsé ... Roman de la damnation, de la prédestination, les Chemins de la mer constitue une sorte de sommet de la noirceur et du pessimisme mauriaciens."--Résumé de l'éditeur

"François Mauriac's masterpiece and one of the greatest Catholic novels, Thérèse Desqueyroux is the haunting story of an unhappily married young woman whose desperation drives her to thoughts of murder. Mauriac paints an unforgettable portrait of spiritual isolation and despair, but he also dramatizes the complex realities of forgiveness, grace, and redemption. Set in the countryside outside Bordeaux, in a region of overwhelming heat and sudden storms, the novel's landscape reflects the inner world of Thérèse, a figure who has captured the imaginations of readers for generations."--Publisher's website

Invasion by Maxence van der Meersch( Book )

2 editions published in 1937 in English and held by 221 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 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A great legend has grown up around Marcel Proust. It is that after years of semi-invalidism and unproductive dilettantism he underwent a sudden, rather miraculous transformation and emerged at thrity-eight as the author of one of the most original and influential novels of our century, the brillant Remembrance of things past. The truth is that during the years preceding the writing of his masterpiece Proust was quietly producing stories and essays which had the arresting vision, humor, and eloquence which his novel finally revealed to a wider public than his own small Parisian coterie. This early miscellany is not merely a "dreaming of works to come" but a series of experiments in various genres--narrative, satire, criticism, prose poetry, and personal essay. Each of these experiments has its own life and validity as well as the additional interest it holds as a foreshadowing of the culmination of Proust's career when all these threads are drawn together in a grand synthesis. -- Back cover
