Most widely held works by Janine Hérisson
Ragtime by E. L Doctorow( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce roman de 1975, le troisième de l'auteur, a eu un énorme succès aux États-Unis, demeurant huit mois sur la liste de best-sellers. Il s'agit d'une chronique malicieuse et documentée sur l'Amérique d'avant la guerre de 1914. En phrases brèves et en insertions typiques E.L. Doctorow construit une éblouissante mosaïque où se dessinent le futur destin des immigrants de l'époque. D'une portée sociologique certaine, l'oeuvre a été portée à l'écran par Milos Forman. [SDM]
Misia : la vie de Misia Sert by Arthur Gold( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
