Traumatized by memories of his war-ravaged country, and with his son and daughter-in-law dead, Monsieur Linh travels to a foreign land to bring the child in his arms to safety. The other refugees in the detention center are unsure how to help the old man; his caseworkers are compassionate, but overworked. Monsieur Linh struggles beneath the weight of his sorrow, and becomes increasingly bewildered and isolated in this unfamiliar, fast-moving town. And then he encounters Monsieur Bark. They do not speak each other's language, but Monsieur Bark is sympathetic to the foreigner's need to care for the child. Recently widowed and equally alone, he is eager to talk, and Monsieur Linh knows how to listen. The two men share their solitude, and find friendship in an unlikely dialogue between two very different cultures. Monsieur Linh and His Child is a remarkable novel with an extraordinary twist, a subtle portrait of friendship and a dialogue between two cultures.

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.

The complex moral ambiguities of seduction and revenge make 'Les Liaisons dangereuses' (1782) one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. The subject of major film and stage adaptations, the novel's prime movers, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game - a game which they must win. Quotes from the book: “When one woman strikes at the heart of another, she seldom misses, and the wound is invariably fatal.” “Truth to tell, the longer I live, the more I'm tempted to think that the only moderately worthwhile people in the world are you and I.” “A man enjoys the happiness he feels, a woman the happiness she gives.” Readers' reviews: “I'm amazed, these two principal characters that are the very incarnations of malice have incredibly salient and correct anecdotes about love and the beauty of sex considering they use it to humiliate others.” (Tessa Concepcion, “Only a country like France, which takes sex seriously with a smile, as Britain does snobbery with a snoot, could produce this ironic novel.” (Sketchbook, “I think it was Kierkegaard who advised to be aware of entangling alliances. The web of sin in this book is masterfully woven as letters to frame-up an epistolary novel in which each character's letters speak volumes about the characters themselves.” (Robert Lentz,

Meet Paul Blick: born in France (but not Paris); son of a car dealer; provincial sociology student-cum-theoretical revolutionary; briefly employed (by his father-in-law); married and soon to discover adultery and other satisfactions of a desperate househusband as consort of a high-flying wife who conquers the world as CEO of a Jacuzzi-manufacturing company. This not-so-extraordinary Frenchman is delivered to the not-so-extraordinary awareness of having arrived in middle age more a product of his times, his country, and blind chance than a creature of his own free will. Jean-Paul Dubois gives us a man whose life reflects the story – the mind and the heart – of a society coming belatedly, poignantly, and often hilariously to grips with the abiding pain and intermittent beauty of what living has become. From the Trade Paperback edition.

" Ce matin, il fait un froid glacial. Les sommets sont dans les nuages. On dirait que la haute vallée fume. A la buvette, les bergers se réchauffent près du poêle en écoutant les dernières nouvelles. L'accord de paix vient enfin d'être signé entre le Mouvement de Libération de la province et l'Etat de Ruido. Johnny Lo, le chef du Mouvement de Libération, est nommé gouverneur de la province... Les bergers discutent avec animation de l'avenir de la haute vallée maintenant que l'accord de paix est signé. Ils voudraient créer un parc naturel dont ils seraient les gardiens. Olga, avec ses économies, aimerait faire construire un chalet-refuge en complément de sa buvette pour héberger les visiteurs". Olga est donc envoyée en ambassadrice par les bergers auprès de Johnny Lo. Elle est accompagnée de soeur Marthe qui, à la suite d'un rêve étrange, a rompu ses voeux et quitté la Chartreuse des Anges. Mais le jour de leur départ, une patrouille de l'armée régulière, à la recherche d'un ancien lieutenant qui refuse l'accord de paix, massacre les sueurs, brûle la buvette, et arrête les bergers accusés de complicité avec le traître... Quelle sera la nouvelle vie d'Olga après ce drame ? Que deviendra soeur Marthe dans cette étrange capitale où tout est à refaire, et d'abord sa vie ? Marie Redonnet est auteur de romans (SpIendid Hôtel, 1986, Minuit ; Forever Valley, 1987, Minuit ; Rose Mélie Rose, 1987, Minuit ; Nevermore, 1994, POL), de théâtre (Tir et Lir, 1988, Minuit ; Mobie-Diq, 1989, Minuit ; Le Cirque Pandor, 1994, POL), et d'un essai (Jean Genet, le poète travesti, Grasset, 2000).
