L'intérêt de l'enfant : roman by Ian McEwan( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A l'âge de cinquante-neuf ans, Fiona Maye est une brillante magistrate à la Haute Cour de Londres où elle exerce en tant que spécialiste du droit de la famille. Passionnée, parfois même hantée par son travail, elle en délaisse sa vie personnelle et son mari Jack. Surtout depuis cette nouvelle affaire : Adam Henry, un adolescent de dix-sept ans atteint de leucémie, risque la mort et les croyances religieuses de sa famille interdisent la transfusion sanguine qui pourrait le sauver. Avant de rendre son jugement, Fiona décide soudainement de se rendre à l'hôpital pour rencontrer Adam. Mais cette entrevue, au cours de laquelle elle découvre un jeune homme romantique, poète et musicien, la trouble. Désormais impliquée personnellement, la magistrate décide de tout faire pour sauver Adam. Seulement sa décision n'est pas sans conséquences et elle se retrouve unie au garçon par un lien étrange qui pourrait bien causer leur perte. Dans ce court roman, Ian McEwan allie avec justesse la froideur de la justice à la poésie et à la musicalité qui imprègnent la vie des personnages. Dans un style limpide, il construit une de ces ambiances oppressantes dont il a la clé et fait preuve d'une complexité thématique impressionnante. A la lecture, les certitudes se dérobent : où s'arrête et où commence l'intérêt de l'enfant ?" [résumé de la 4e de couverture]

Saturday : [a novel] by Ian McEwan( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the pen of a master-the #1 bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author of Atonement-comes an astonishing novel that captures the fine balance of happiness and the unforeseen threats that can destroy it. A brilliant, thrilling page-turner that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Saturday is a masterful novel set within a single day in February 2003. Henry Perowne is a contented man-a successful neurosurgeon, happily married to a newspaper lawyer, and enjoying good relations with his children. Henry wakes to the comfort of his large home in central London on this, his day off. He is as at ease here as he is in the operating room. Outside the hospital, the world is not so easy or predictable. There is an impending war against Iraq, and a general darkening and gathering pessimism since the New York and Washington attacks two years before. On this particular Saturday morning, Perowne's day moves through the ordinary to the extraordinary. After an unusual sighting in the early morning sky, he makes his way to his regular squash game with his anaesthetist, trying to avoid the hundreds of thousands of marchers filling the streets of London, protesting against the war. A minor accident in his car brings him into a confrontation with a small-time thug. To Perowne's professional eye, something appears to be profoundly wrong with this young man, who in turn believes the surgeon has humiliated him-with savage consequences that will lead Henry Perowne to deploy all his skills to keep his family alive

In between days by Andrew Porter( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a commanding new voice in fiction comes a novel as perceptive as it is generous: a portrait of an American family trying to cope in our world today, a story of choices and doubts and transgressions. The Hardings are teetering on the brink. Elson -- once one of Houston's most promising architects, who never quite lived up to expectations -- is recently divorced from his wife of thirty years, Cadence. Their grown son, Richard, is still living at home: driving his mother's minivan, working at a local coffee shop, resisting the career as a writer that beckons him. But when Chloe Harding gets kicked out of her East Coast college, for reasons she can't explain to either her parents or her older brother, the Hardings' lives start to unravel. Chloe returns to Houston, but the dangers set in motion back at school prove inescapable. Told with piercing insight, taut psychological suspense, and the wisdom of a true master of character, this is a novel about the vagaries of love and family, about betrayal and forgiveness, about the possibility and impossibility of coming home

He has just found the body of a young woman, Judy Lacroix, in a car at the abandoned drive-in on the edge of town. Stan can't help getting involved, though his policing days are long over.
