Lady L. : a novel by Romain Gary( Book )

12 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a thoroughly interesting tale about aristocracy, appearances and amour! We meet the aging version of Lady L at her 80th birthday party. All of her esteemed grandchildren, her son and their families have gathered. On her estate is a pavilion, which Lady L keeps locked with her treasured memorabilia. The land is being taken by the government and so the pavilion must be demolished. Most of the book happens in flashback as Lady L takes her trusted but stuffy friend Percy whose help she needs in saving the pavilion and relates to him the beginning of a young girl Annette Boudin whose father was an anarchist and whose mother ran away with another man. Her unusual upbringing was complicated by her father's demise, where the unusually attractive young woman took to earning her way in the world's oldest profession. She meets the also greatly attractive Armand Denis, who happens to also be an anarchist and delights in assassinations of powerful royal figures across Europe. As the tale unfolds, Lady L is taken under wing by a powerful but bohemian wealthy man named Glendale nearing the end of his life. Discovering she is pregnant with Armand's child, she marries Glendale to protect her child. She assumes a great estate and wealth upon Glendale's passing. The story comes to a crashing climax as years later when the now known Lady L in her second society marriage gets word that Armand has been released from prison. The flames of passion run through her again. The novel comes to a crashing conclusion with its final heist and Lady L's revealed secret of why she cares so deeply about what will happen to her pavilion. --Lee Armstrong at Amazon.com.

Les clowns lyriques by Romain Gary( Book )

22 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in French and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces clowns lyriques dont il est question ce sont les idéalistes, car c'est ainsi que M. Gorki les appelait. Michel Boujut n'a pas réussi à croire aux divers fantasmes de l'auteur sur Hollywood, l'amour, la guerre, l'histoire, la politique, l'idéologie et la métaphysique. Romain Gary a beau écrire, dans une note liminaire, que "le burlesque devient le dernier refuge de l'instinct de conservation", pour Boujut un funeste esprit de sérieux alourdit et gâche ce roman

Le vin des morts : roman by Romain Gary( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans un souterrain peuplé de squelettes, le jeune Tulipe cherche désespérément la sortie. En chemin, il dialogue avec des morts aussi effrayants que grotesques : trois sours maquerelles régissent un bordel d'outre-tombe, des flics tabassent un prévenu jusqu'à le rendre tricolore, Jim et Joe jouent sadiquement avec les têtes d'un pierrot et de sa colombine, un poilu avoue avoir laissé sa place à un Allemand dans la tombe du Soldat inconnu, un moine le supplie de le remplacer pour garder le Saint-Graal, etc. Un Dieu ivre et grossier préside aux misères de ce petit monde grouillant de cafards et de mites. Le débonnaire Tulipe y va lui aussi de ses histoires, celles des clients tordus de l'hôtel tenu par sa femme. Chez les vivants comme chez les morts, l'âme humaine ressemble à une petite putain crasseuse et malodorante. Tulipe se réveille dans un cimetière, la gueule de bois et les bras en croix. Sous l'influence de Poe, Céline ou encore Jarry, ce premier roman inédit aux allures de danse macabre, écrit à l'âge de dix-neuf ans, dépeint avec sarcasme la société de l'après-guerre et de la crise des années trente. Dans sa présentation, Philippe Brenot montre que Le Vin des morts, signé Romain Kacew, ne quittera jamais les poches de Romain Gary et qu'il lui servira de vivier, quarante ans plus tard, pour écrire les romans d'Émile Ajar
