The book of Ebenezer Le Page by G. B Edwards( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ebenezer Le Page, cantankerous, opinionated, and charming, is one of the most compelling literary creations of the late twentieth century. Eighty years old, Ebenezer has lived his whole life on the Channel Island of Guernsey, a stony speck of a place caught between the coasts of England and France yet a world apart from either. Ebenezer himself is fiercely independent, but as he reaches the end of his life he is determined to tell his own story and the stories of those he has known. He writes of family secrets and feuds, unforgettable friendships and friendships betrayed, love glimpsed and lost. The Book of Ebenezer Le Page is a beautifully detailed chronicle of a life, but it is equally an oblique reckoning with the traumas of the twentieth century, as Ebenezer recalls both the men lost to the Great War and the German Occupation of Guernsey during World War II, and looks with despair at the encroachments of commerce and tourism on his beloved island. G.B. Edwards labored in obscurity all his life and completed The Book of Ebenezer Le Page shortly before his death. Published posthumously, the book is a triumph of the storyteller's art that conjures up the extraordinary voice of a living man

Confessions of a crap artist by Philip K Dick( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur est l'un des plus prestigieux représentants de la science-fiction américaine. La presque la totalité de ses ouvrages en ce domaine a été traduite en français, mais il a aussi écrit beaucoup d'autres oeuvres ne relevant pas de cette formule. Le présent roman écrit en 1959, publié en 1975, est l'un de ses meilleurs et l'on y retrouve ses qualités habituelles, sens de l'humour et de l'horreur mêlés, capacité de créer des personnages vraisemblables dont ici un quatuor assez étrange dominé par le "barjo" que l'on a comparé à l'##Idiot## de Dostoïevski. Préface contextante de Paul Williams
My story by Marilyn Monroe( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description
