The startling and groundbreaking novel that inspired Luis Bu uel s film by the same name is finally available once more. In a world that blurs the lines between feminism and female sexuality, Belle de Jour remains as vital and controversial today as it was in its 1960 debut. Severine Serizy is a wealthy and beautiful Parisian housewife. She loves her husband, but she cannot share physical intimacy with him, and her vivid sadomasochistic fantasies drive her to seek employment at a brothel. By day, she enacts her customers' wildest fantasies under the pseudonym 'Belle de Jour'; in the evenings, she returns home to her chaste marriage and oblivious husband. Famous for its unflinching eroticism, the Joseph Kessel novel continues to offer an eye-opening glance into a unique female psyche

The man with the miraculous hands by Joseph Kessel ( Book )
9 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book chronicles the career of Dr. Felix Kersten, a gifted physician whose most infamous patient was Nazi SS chief Heinrich Himmler. Kersten, an alternative-medicine specialist, could alleviate Himmler's severe and chronic abdominal pain using massage and manipulation, therapy so effective that Himmler came to depend on Kersten for his physical and psychological well being. Kersten boldly used the resulting emotional leverage over Himmler to win release from the fate of the Gestapo for victims of Nazi persecution, first a few at a time, then in increasing numbers until thousands of Jews and other persecuted peoples were saved. The Man with the Miraculous Hands is an account of a little-known miracle of World War II."--BOOK JACKET
