The ogre by Michel Tournier( Book )

232 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 2,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic of modern fiction, The Erl-King is a magisterial tale of innocence, perversion and obsession. It follows the passage of strange, gentle Abel Tiffauges from submissive schoolboy to adult misfit - a man without a sense of belonging until he finds himself a prisoner of war, and then a teacher, and then the 'ogre' of a Nazi school at the castle of Kaltenborn. Tournier's masterpiece rivets the reader until the very last page, when Abel meets his mystic fate in the collapsing ruins of the Third Reich

Le médianoche amoureux : contes et nouvelles by Michel Tournier( Book )

38 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in French and Korean and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une vingtaine de nouvelles et de contes dans lesquels se déploie "l'art subtil du détour et du leurre" d'un écrivain accompli qui joue ici sur les registres du jeu et de l'ironie et affirme que chacune des histoires "évoque un grand sujet classique sous des formes opposées". Des faiblesses (##L'auto fantôme##, etc.) et des textes nourris d'une mince anecdote (##Ecrire debout##, etc.). Pour A. Girard "un ensemble somptueux de saveurs discrètes". Pour A. Rinaldi "pas une phrase qui retienne". Ainsi va la critique littéraire

34 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in French and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il faut deux jambes pour marcher, et pour saisir on se sert des deux mains. Cette évidence a été le point de départ de ce petit traité où les idées s'éclairent en s'opposant deux à deux. La femme sert de révélateur à l'homme, la lune nous dit ce qu'elle est en plein soleil, la cuillère manifeste sa douceur maternelle grâce à la fourchette
