Sodom and Gomorrah by Marcel Proust( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sodom and Gomorrah takes up for the first time the theme of homosexual love - male and female - and dwells on how destructive sexual jealousy can be for those who suffer it. Proust's novel is also an unforgiving analysis of both the decadent high society of Paris and the rise of a philistine bourgeoisie that is on the way to supplanting it. Characters who had lesser roles earlier now reappear in a different light and take center stage, notably Albertine, with whom the narrator believes he is in love, and the insanely haughty Baron de Charlus."--Jacket

Species of spaces and other pieces by Georges Perec( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georges Perec, author of the highly acclaimed Life: A User's Manual, was only forty-six when he died in 1982. Despite a tragic childhood, during which his mother was deported to Auschwitz, Perec produced some of the most entertaining essays of the age. His literary output was deliberately varied in form and style and this generous selection of Perec's non-fictional work, the first to appear in English, demonstrates his characteristic lightness of touch, wry humour and accessibility." "As he contemplates the many ways in which we occupy the space around us, as he depicts the commonplace items with which we are familiar in a startling, engrossing way, as he recounts his psychoanalysis while remaining reticent about his feelings or depicts the Paris of his childhood without a trace of sentimentality, we become aware that we are in the presence of a remarkable, virtuoso writer."--Jacket

On art and literature, 1896-1919 by Marcel Proust( Book )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1994 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las cosas hermosas que escribiremos si poseemos talento están en nosotros, difusas, como el recuerdo de una melodía que nos cautiva sin que podamos alcanzar su contorno, escribe Proust en contra Sainte-beuve, y en efecto, en esta obra el autor empezó a recordar esa melodía que se convertiría, años después, en su celebre en busca del tiempo perdido. Bajo la forma de una conversación con su madre, Proust despliega numerosos motivos de esa cadencia: momentos en que un pequeño gesto del presente le lleva al pasado (entre ellos la escena que prefigura aquella otra, famosa, de la magdalena); el insomnio, los sueños y los placeres solitarios; los ruidos de la calle que se cuelan en la habitación; una hermosa condesa; las impresiones que le causa un rayo de luz en el balcón; la llegada a Venecia; páginas memorables sobre el crítico Sainte-beuvey grandes escritores como Baudelaire, Nervalybalzac; los Guermantes y la homosexualidad, o la infancia en Combray
