The Mexican dream, or, The interrupted thought of Amerindian civilizations by J.-M. G Le Clézio( Book )

48 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not one dream but many unfold in J.M.G. Le Clezio's conjuring of the consciousness of Mexico, a powerful evocation of the imaginings that made and unmade an ancient culture. "What motivated me," Le Clezio has said, "was a sort of dream about what has disappeared and what could have been." A widely respected French novelist who for many years has studied pre-Columbian Mexico, Le Clezio imagined how the thought of early Indian civilizations might have evolved if not for the interruption of European conquest." "In an unprecedented way, his book takes us into the dream that was the religion of the Aztecs, which in its own apocalyptic visions anticipated the coming of the Spanish conquerors. Here the dream of the conquistadores rises before us, too, the glimmering idea of gold drawing Europe into the Mexican dream. Against the religion and thought of the Aztecs and the Tarascans and the Europeans in Mexico, Le Clezio also shows us those of the "barbarians" of the north, the nomadic Indians beyond the pale of the Aztec frontier." "Finally, Le Clezio's book is a dream of the present, a meditation on what in Amerindian civilizations - in their language, in their way of telling tales, of wanting to survive their own destruction - moved the poet, playwright, and actor Antonin Artaud and motivates Le Clezio in this book. The author's deep identification with pre-Columbian cultures, whose faith told them the wheel of time would bring their gods and their beliefs back to them, finds fitting expression in this extraordinary book, which brings the dream around."--Jacket

War - in the mind of the fragile Bea B., in the infinite icy landscape she journeys through, in Vietnam, in 10,000 years of human history.

Upon an immense stretch of flat ground at the mouth of a river bathed in sunlight rises Hyperpolis.

Each of us will see ourselves reflected in the characters who move mindlessly about Hyperpolis, but The Giants is a call to rebellion. This bold and inventive novel is the work of a tremendously talented writer and both an intoxicating and exhilarating read. --Back cover
Mondo & other stories = Mondo et autres histoires by J.-M. G Le Clézio( Book )

Haunting and beautiful, these stories speak to a universal longing for a life beyond the confines and trappings of modern existence. In each tale it is a child who can see and appreciate these places filled with wonder and knowledge. Mondo is a little boy whose connection to the beauty in everything unites a seaside town. Little Cross perturbs the order of things with her question: "What is blue?" Daniel flees his stifling school and absent parents for the sea. All these children, like the wise billy goat in the collection's final story, understand "so many things, not the things you find in books that men like to talk about but silent, strong things, things full of beauty and mystery." And in the end, so do we

Le 25 janvier à 15 h 30, François Besson, le narrateur, est frappé par une vision qui prend valeur de symbole : au moment où s'élance vers le ciel le hurlement de la sirène, une jeune fille apparaît sur un vélomoteur. Elle disparaît entre les maisons en même temps que cesse le bruit. Cet instant provoque chez le narrateur un basculement intérieur. Depuis ce jour, tout a pourri. Je, François Besson, vois la mort partout. epuis ce jour François Besson vit les treize journées essentielles de sa vie. Le premier jour il écoute la confidence d'une amie, Anna, enregistrée sur bande magnétique. Il écoute ce qu'elle espérait, ce qui la passionnait, sa lassitude et ses raisons d'en finir. Le treizième jour, après avoir renoncé à l'argent, à l'amour, au travail et au bonheur, après avoir offert, en guise de sacrifice expiatoire, ses deux yeux à la brûlure du soleil, Besson fait passer l'envers de la bande. Anna raconte qu'elle a menti, que ses raisons de se suicider sont difficiles à dire mais qu'elle va mourir ; elle a absorbé le gardénal et il entendra ses dernières paroles. On assiste à la mort d'Anna. Elle dit : C'est comme s'il y avait le déluge. Le livre se termine sur l'abandon de François Besson. Le 22 mars 1963, il cède : la barrière de sa volonté n'est plus. Il a voulu le déchaînement, et ce déchaînement s'accomplit
Ritournelle de la faim : roman by J.-M. G Le Clézio( Book )

39 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ma mère, quand elle m'a raconté la première du Boléro, a dit son émotion, les cris, les bravos et les sifflets, le tumulte. Dans la même salle, quelque part, se trouvait un jeune homme qu'elle n'a jamais rencontré, Claude Lévi-Strauss. Comme lui, longtemps après, ma mère m'a confié que cette musique avait changé sa vie. Maintenant, je comprends pourquoi. Je sais ce que signifiait pour sa génération cette phrase répétée, serinée, imposée par le rythme et le crescendo. Le Boléro n'est pas une pièce musicale comme les autres. Il est une prophétie. Il raconte l'histoire d'une colère, d'une faim. Quand il s'achève dans la violence, le silence qui s'ensuit est terrible pour les survivants étourdis. J'ai écrit cette histoire en mémoire d'une jeune fille qui fut malgré elle une héroïne à vingt ans."--Back cover

This story includes eleven short stories from one of the most heartbreaking French storytellers today. In one story, two girls risk everything by running away from home and their dead-end factory jobs in search of a more meaningful life. In others a man stands by helplessly as a place of great beauty and deep childhood memory is slowly consumed and destroyed by a quickly developing city, an illegal immigrant desperate for work finds himself the prisoner of a ring trafficking in human beings, and an adolescent girl encounters the violence of a gang of masked bikers in a hostile and desolate housing project. At once tragic and evocative, these engrossing and beautifully crafted stories touch upon the loss of human values in a rapidly changing world
La quarantaine by J.-M. G Le Clézio( Book )

46 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Que reste-t-il des émotions, des rêves, des désirs quand tout disparaît? L'homme d'Aden, l'empoisonneur de Harrar sont-ils les mêmes que l'adolescent furieux qui poussa une nuit la porte du café de la rue Madame, son regard sombre passant sur un enfant de neuf ans qui était mon grand-père? Je marche dans toutes ces rues, j'entends le bruit de mes talons qui résonne dans la nuit, rue Victor-Cousin, rue Serpente, place Maubert, dans les rues de la Contrescarpe. Celui que je cherche n'a plus de nom. Il est moins qu'une ombre, moins qu'une trace, moins qu'un fantôme. Il est en moi comme une vibration, comme un désir, un élan de l'imagination, un rebond du cœur, pour mieux m'envoler. D'ailleurs je prends demain l'avion pour l'autre bout du monde. L'autre extrémité du temps."--Back cover

Such fine boys by Patrick Modiano( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a boarding school student in the early 1960s, Patrick Modiano lived among the troubled teenage sons of wealthy but self-involved parents. In this mesmerizing novel, Modiano weaves together a series of exquisitely crafted stories about such jettisoned boys at the exclusive Valvert School on the outskirts of Paris: abandoned children of privilege, left to create new family ties among themselves. Misfits and heroes, sports champions and good-hearted chums, the boys of Valvert misbehave, run away, get expelled, and engage in various forms of delinquency and disappearance. They emerge into adulthood tragically damaged, still tethered to their adolescent selves, powerless to escape the central loneliness of their lives in an ever-darkening spiral of self-delusion and grim consequence"--Back cover
