Arctic summer by Damon Galgut( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1912, the SS Birmingham approaches India. On board is Morgan Forster, novelist and man of letters, who's embarking on a journey of discovery. As he stands on deck, the promise of a strange new future begins to take shape before his eyes. The seeds of a story start to gather at the corner of his mind: a sense of impending menace, lust in close confines, under a hot, empty sky. It will be another 12 years, and a second time spent in India, before "A Passage to India," E.M. Forster's great work of literature, is published
The impostor by Damon Galgut( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galgut leads his readers into the developing heart of postapartheid South Africa, a landscape being reshaped by new waves of money and power. Adam Napier leaves Johannesburg looking for a fresh start. Jobless and directionless, but with a head full of literary ambitions, he moves into his brothers dilapidated house on the edge of a backwater town. One day he encounters Canning, a man who claims Adam saved his life in their school days, but whom Adam does not remember at all. But he plays along and, for a time, enjoys all that Canning has: a vast fortune and game preserve inherited from his father, and a beautiful, mysterious younger wife to whom Adam is compulsively, dangerously drawn. A spellbinding achievement from one of the defining members of a new generation of African writers. The Impostor evokes a glittering world in which the moneyed old guard, newly empowered black Africans, and shady foreign businessmen jockey for a piece of the new South African dream

The unAmericans by Molly Antopol( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The UnAmericans' is a debut story collection of great poise. A former dissident from Communist-era Prague fears his daughter's new play will cast him in an unflattering light. A divorced dry cleaner tries to move on, bemused by his daughter's reawakened faith. A Hollywood actor is imprisoned by the House Un-American Activities Committee and has a fraught reunion with his son. A young Israeli journalist, left unemployed after America's most recent economic crash, begins dating a middle-aged widower. And in the book's final story, a tour de force spanning three continents and three generations of women, a young American and her Israeli husband are forced to reconsider their marriage after the death of her art-collecting grandmother. This collection is a stunning exploration of characters shaped by the forces of history. Each finely turned story presents a different, morally suspenseful problem. Arranging and resolving these problems, Molly Antopol writes with an orchestral richness, in fiction that is intricately but delicately composed. But 'The UnAmericans' is remarkable as much for its heart as its sophistication: each voice is humane, full of warmth and wit; each page brims with a love of life. The result is a debut collection with the power not only to absorb and thrill, but to move

Insolente, rebelle, Ronit a quitté l'Angleterre et la communauté juive orthodoxe à dix-huit ans, direction New York. Refusant de se plier au destin tout tracé de mère de famille et d'épouse, elle a désobéi à son père, le grand Rav Krushka. A la mort de ce dernier, quinze ans plus tard, Ronit est rappelée auprès de sa famille, à Hendon. Elle retrouve Esti, qui fut sa petite amie, et son cousin Dovid. Eux n'ont pas désobéi. Dovid est devenu rabbin presque malgré lui. Esti a nié son attirance pour les femmes et suivi les préceptes de la Torah : elle a épousé Dovid... sans cesser d'aimer Ronit. Le retour de l'enfant maudite dans ce monde replié sur lui-même va provoquer une onde de choc. [4e de couv.]

VSAdH, EdWB, IpAN (uDdPK) : variations sur l'ange de l'histoire, essai de Walter Benjamin, inspiré par Angelus Novus (un dessin de Paul Klee) = ariações sobre o anjo da história, ensaio de Walter Benjamin, inspirado por Angelus Novus (um desenho de Paul Klee) by Ilan Manouach( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site de l'éditeur: "Il existe un tableau de Klee qui s'intitule Angelus Novus. Il représente un ange qui semble avoir dessein de s'éloigner de ce à quoi son regard semble rivé. Ses yeux sont écarquillés, sa bouche ouverte, ses ailes déployées. Tel est l'aspect que doit avoir nécessairement l'ange de l'histoire. Il a le visage tourné vers le passé. Où paraît devant nous une suite d'événements, il ne voit qu'une seule et unique catastrophe qui ne cesse d'amonceler ruines sur ruines et les jette à ses pieds. Il voudrait bien s'attarder, réveiller les morts et rassembler les vaincus. Mais du paradis souffle une tempête qui s'est prise dans ses ailes, si forte que l'ange ne peut plus les refermer. Cette tempête le pousse incessamment vers l'avenir auquel il tourne le dos, cependant que, jusqu'au ciel, devant lui s'accumulent les ruines. Cette tempête est ce que nous appelons le progrès." Walter Benjamin, Thèses sur la philosophie de l'histoire. Le chant de Pedro Moura décrit le panthéon des anges, une description pour chaque ange. Il s'en dégage une description de l'homme, de tous ses caractères. Une description fabuleuse et poétique de la créature dans la dévastation du monde, le vent dans les ruines. Le texte est mis en images par Ilan Manouach (Katz, Limbo, Frag, Les Lieux et les Choses) dont les illustrations brillantes et violentes amplifient la scansion du poème

Liars and saints : a novel by Maile Meloy( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in California, Liars and saints follows four generations of the Catholic Santerre family from World War II to the present, as they navigate a succession of life-altering events -- through the submerged emotion of the fifties, the recklessness and excess of the sixties and seventies, and the reckonings of the eighties and nineties. In a family driven by jealousy and propriety as much as by love, an unspoken tradition of deceit is passed from generation to generation, and fiercely protected secrets gradually drive the Santerres apart. When tragedy shatters their precarious domestic lives, it takes astonishing courage and compassion to bring them back together.--Résumé de l'éditeur
