Imagine for just a moment that, in the blink of an eye, you could be transported to NYC in the '50s -- and more precisely, into the life of Mrs Helen Scott, press attachée of the French Film Office, who played a major role in the American success of the filmmakers of La Nouvelle Vague. Who would turn down such…

Ten years in the making, The Volunteer exudes that rare quality in a work where one feels that the life of the author is on the line, that each sentence has cost him or her countless revisions, that the bar has been set at an impossible height purely for the challenge of rising to the task. This dazzling ambition--and more important,…

After having focused on the life of her father, Robert Linhart--one that could not be dissociated from his political engagements, and which was already explored in two remarkable books (Volontaires pour l'usine, and Le jour où mon père s'est tu)--Virginie Linhart, who has now herself become a mother, looks back on her own story: as the daughter of militant Maoists,…

Citizen is many things at once: a collection of anecdotes, a poetry book, an extended piece of criticism, and a multi-media presentation—all remarkably designed by Rankine's husband, the photographer John Lucas. All of these vignettes expose her experience as a black woman, a poet, and an esteemed professor.

The lover conquers or fails in his speech. His quest resides not in the other, but in the existence with the other. As we read, we cherish the empathy of the Lovers experience, because we, as the voice we read, are also hoping, waiting, and embracing the abyss.

One may say, without risking to sound bombastic, that Chéri is the ultimate love story--as well as the ultimate love story for its main character, Léa de Lonval, a 49 year old courtesan involved with a 25 years old lover whom she calls "Chéri".

These stories that overlap and intertwine through a tangle of delightfully imagined scenes whisper in our ear how love is eternal, never ceasing to reincarnate itself in new bodies, in new skin, in new environments--both the same and somewhat different, unique and always ungraspable.

Unlike other great classics of libertine literature, No Tomorrow is light, delicate, and concerned purely with the reader enjoying themselves as they spend a night with a young man who has been drawn into a gloriously scandalous affair between a countess, her husband, and a marquis.

At 53, Gustave Flaubert finds himself more isolated than ever. His friends are dying one after the other, leaving him with no one to discuss Shakespeare, Homer, Rabelais, and Goethe.  And on top of everything else, Flaubert is suffering from severe writer's block: his mind is empty, his hands are useless.
