Changing my mind : occasional essays by Zadie Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Split into five sections-"Reading," "Being," "Seeing," "Feeling" and "Remembering"--Changing My Mind invites readers to witness the world from Zadie Smith's unique vantage. Smith casts her acute eye over material both personal and cultural, with wonderfully engaging essays-some published here for the first time-on diverse topics including literature, movies, going to the Oscars, British comedy, family, feminism, Obama, Katharine Hepburn, and Anna Magnani. In her investigations Smith also reveals much of herself. Her literary criticism shares the wealth of her experiences as a reader and exposes the tremendous influence diverse writers-E.M. Forster, Zora Neale Hurston, George Eliot, and others-have had on her writing life and her self-understanding. Smith also speaks directly to writers as a craftsman, offering precious practical lessons on process. Here and throughout, readers will learn of the wide-ranging experiences-in novels, travel, philosophy, politics, and beyond-that have nourished Smith's rich life of the mind. Her probing analysis offers tremendous food for thought, encouraging readers to attend to the slippery questions of identity, art, love, and vocation that so often go neglected. Changing My Mind announces Zadie Smith as one of our most important contemporary essayists, a writer with the rare ability to turn the world on its side with both fact and fiction. Changing My Mind is a gift to readers, writers, and all who want to look at life more expansively

Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick deWitt( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mal-aimé, méprisé, mais bien décidé à forcer son destin, le jeune et délicat Lucien Minor, dit Lucy, quitte sans regret sa bourgade natale pour aller prendre l'improbable poste de sous-majordome au château von Aux, lugubre forteresse sise au coeur d'un massif alpin. Avec pour tout bagage son costume râpé et une pipe nouvellement acquise dont il ne sait se servir sans provoquer l'hilarité générale, le voilà qui fait son entrée au château sous la houlette de l'énigmatique M. Olderglough. Très peu sollicité, Lucy a tout le loisir de découvrir que ces lieux inquiétants, en apparence inhabités, recèlent les plus noirs secrets, et de faire la connaissance d'une population locale haute en couleur : voleurs invétérés, fous à lier, aristocrates dépravés, mais surtout Klara, dont il tombe éperdument amoureux, se plaçant ainsi en périlleuse concurrence avec le bel Adolphus. Commence alors un conte grinçant dont les protagonistes incarnent une étrange humanité toute pétrie de mensonges, de désirs malins et d'une perversité parfois érotique qui sidèrent Lucy quand il n'en est pas lui-même l'agent. (4e de couv.)
