Bathroom (Dalkey)

More Info
First published in France in 1985, The Bathroom was Jean-Philippe Toussaint's debut novel, and it heralded a new generation of innovative French literature. In this playful and perplexing book, we meet a young Parisian researcher who lives inside his bathroom. As he sits in his tub meditating on existence (and refusing to tell us his name), the people around him--his girlfriend, Edmondsson, the Polish painters in his kitchen--each in their own way further enables his peculiar lifestyle, supporting his eccentric quest for immobility. But an invitation to the Austrian embassy shakes up his stable world, prompting him to take a risk and leave his bathroom . . .

Nadja: Novela

More Info
Nadja est un roman autobiographique écrit par André Breton en 1928 et révisée en 1962. Le livre commence avec la rencontre inattendue entre l'auteur et un jeune Nadja appelé, qui exerce sur lui une fascination particulière. Le nom Nadja vient du russe et est le début (juste au début) du mot espoir . Le livre semble constituer une description avec des éléments autobiographiques de la relation du Breton avec un patient que se dérégler de Pierre Janet. L'écriture non linéaire du livre est ancrée à la réalité par le biais de références aux autre surréaliste parisien, Louis Aragon et par une série de photographies. Le livre contient aussi des dessins. Nadja pas tellement une personne comme un moyen d'influer sur le comportement des gens. Mais c'est elle qui donne la forme et la structure au travail. Nadja est si merveilleusement libre de n'importe quel type d'apparence, qu'elle méprise à la fois la raison et la Loi, est la forme comme Simone de Beauvoir, il décrit.
Our Lady of the Flowers

Our Lady of the Flowers

More Info

Jean Genet's masterpiece, composed entirely in the solitude of his prison cell. With an introduction by Jean-Paul Sartre.

Jean Genet's first, and arguably greatest, novel was written while he was in prison. As Sartre recounts in his introduction, Genet penned this work on the brown paper which inmates were supposed to use to fold bags as a form of occupational therapy. The masterpiece he managed to produce under those difficult conditions is a lyrical portrait of the criminal underground of Paris and the thieves, murderers and pimps who occupied it. Genet approached this world through his protagonist, Divine, a male transvestite prostitute. In the world of Our Lady of the Flowers, moral conventions are turned on their head. Sinners are portrayed as saints and when evil is not celebrated outright, it is at least viewed with a benign indifference. Whether one finds Genet's work shocking or thrilling, the novel remains almost as revolutionary today as when it was first published in 1943 in a limited edition, thanks to the help of one its earliest admirers, Jean Cocteau.

Three by Echenoz: Big Blondes, Piano, and Running

More Info
A single volume that gathers together three of the most remarkable novels from Jean Echenoz, the "most distinctive French voice of his generation" (The Washington Post), Three by Echenoz demonstrates the award-winning author's extraordinary versatility and elegant yet playful style at its finest.

"A parodic thriller sparkling with wit" (L'Humanité), Big Blondes probes our universal obsession with fame as a television documentary producer tries to track down a renowned singer who has mysteriously disappeared. A darkly comedic, noir-style tour de force, it finally answers the age-old question: do blondes have more fun?

"Fluid, never a garment that fits beautifully even inside-out" (Elle), Piano brings Dante's Inferno to contemporary Paris, following Max Delmarc, a concert pianist suffering from paralyzing stage fright and alchoholism, as he meets his untimely death and descends through purgatory--part luxury hotel, part minimum-security prison--into a modern vision of hell.

Running is "a small wonder of writing and humanity" (L'Express)--a portrait of the legendary Czech athlete Emil Zátopek, who became a national hero, winning three gold medals at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics even as he was compelled to face the unyielding realities of life under an authoritarian regime.

Here we have the anatomy of the contemporary writer, as imagined by the pseudonymous, "post-exotic" Antoine Volodine. His writers aren't the familiar, bitter, alcoholic kind, however; nor are they great, romantic, tortured geniuses; and least of all are they media darlings and socialites. No, in Volodine's universe, the writer is pitted in a pathetic struggle against silence and sickness--that is, when she's not about to be murdered by random lunatics or fellow inmates. Consisting of seven loosely interlocking stories, "Writers" is a window onto a chaotic reality where expressing oneself brings along with it repercussions both absurd and frighteningly familiar.
