A terrific historical novel, as well as an impressive coming-of-age story, The Bridgetower Sonata embraces the history of music, slavery, and the black condition at the turn of the 19th century. We cross paths with Alexandre Dumas, Pierre de Condorcet, Prince George IV, Marie-Antoinette, and Voltaire as well.

Novelist, poet, and literary critic at the French newspaper Le Figaro, Thierry Clermont enjoys slipping into the footsteps of those authors whom he admires. In La Balade de Galway, he leads us to the western tip of Ireland--a land of literature and music.

Love between brothers has inspired many great texts; and in my humble opinion, with the publication of Un vagabond dans la langue (Gallimard), Matthieu Mével adds a title to this list.

Yasmina Reza achieves something rather unique here in translating traumas, complicated family relationships and mid-life crises into one of the most delightful and fun pieces I have ever read.

L'inconnu de la poste is the account of a news story that shocked Montréal-la-Cluse---a small city in the Ain region of France--as well as the rest of the country in 2008. Florence Aubenas does not play at being a detective, completely removing herself from the narrative. What interests her above all is the place and its history--a small spa town…

Malroux is an unusual poet in France in that her work as a translator from English to French bears a heavy influence over what she writes. Having almost single-handedly introduced the greatest English-language poet of all time to French readers (of course I am talking about Emily Dickinson), she incorporates the oblique beauty of Dickinson into her own works.
