Zazie dans le métro : roman by Raymond Queneau( Book )

365 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 2,483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impish, foul-mouthed Zazie arrives in Paris from the country to stay with her female-impersonator Uncle Gabriel. All she really wants to do is ride the metro, but finding it shut because of a strike, Zazie looks for other means of amusement and is soon caught up in a comic adventure that becomes wilder and more manic by the minute. Queneau's cult classic was made into a hugely successful film by Louis Malle in 1960. Packed full of word play and phonetic games, Zazie in the Metro remains as stylish and witty as ever."--Jacket

Pierrot mon ami, roman by Raymond Queneau( Book )

156 editions published between 1942 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce silence, cette nuit, ces rues étroites, tout disposait Pierrot à ne penser à rien de précis. Il regardait à droite, à gauche, comme pour accrocher quelque part ses petites curiosités, mais ne trouvait rien -tout au plus les enseignes, et qui ne valaient pas les billes de l'avenue de Chaillot. Il songea un instant à visiter le bobinard de cette sous-préfecture, mais il ne rencontrait personne pour le renseigner. Finalement il se perdit. Il traversait maintenant une petite banlieue ouvrière, avec des manufactures ici et là. Plus loin, Pierrot atteignit une route assez large, avec un double liséré d'arbres, peut-être nationale ? peut-être départementale ? Il marcha encore quelques instants. ¦Il entendit tout près de lui un grand cri, un cri de femme, un cri de peur.¦

Stories & remarks by Raymond Queneau( Book )

Talking dogs, boozing horses, and suicides come head to head with ruminations on the effects of aerodynamics on addition, rhetorical dreams, and a pioneering example of permutational fiction influenced by computer language. Also included is Michel Leiris's preface from the French edition, an introduction by the translator, and endnotes addressing each piece individually

L'Année dernière a Marienbad( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature : "[T]his surreal fever dream, or nightmare, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-filled château they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story."--Container
