The girl from the Chartreuse by Pierre Péju( Book )

58 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Etienne Vollard, owner of the bookshop The Verb To Be, is a red-haired man imprisoned in an enormous body and his solitude. One wet afternoon, driving a vanload of books, he knocks down and seriously injures a little girl, Eva. In the hospital, he meets Eva's mother, Therese, a struggling single parent who lacks maternal instincts and whose dream is to be far away, alone. Both are haunted by guilt: Therese because of her lateness in collecting her daughter, and Vollard because he did not manage to stop his car on time (even if he knows that he could not have avoided Eva). Vollard visits Eva regularly while she is in a coma and reads books to her, while Therese spaces her visits out. When Eva eventually wakes up, she has become mute and is terribly weakened. A few weeks after Eva has been sent to a rehabilitation centre in the Massif de la Chartreuse, Therese gets a job far away and asks Vollard to visit her daughter on her behalf. However, nothing seems to help "La Petite Chartreuse"--Vollard calls Eva that way in reference to the monastic order of the Chartreux - to enjoy life again. She becomes weaker every day to such a point that Vollard decides to find Threse and to take her back to her daughter before it is too late
Le rire de l'ogre : roman by Pierre Péju( Book )

37 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul, a young Frenchman, meets Clara in the Bavarian village of Kehlstein during the 1960s. He is the son of a Resistance fighter, murdered in mysterious circumstances; she, the daughter of a doctor who had served in the Wehrmacht. Both were born at a time when Europe was at last at peace, yet they are both victims of history, for each of them bears the weight of pain and memory, and each is an indirect witness to the crimes and ravages of war. Paul's and Clara's paths are to cross and entwine in unexpected ways over the years. Paul becomes a sculptor, she a photographer, but in their work, as in their lives, neither can escape the truth of Shakespeare's observation that "the evil that men do lives after them."

Reconnaissance by Pierre Péju( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in French and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un soir, dans un refuge de haute montagne, un mystérieux randonneur m'a fait don d'un bloc transparent qu'il prétendait être le "Cristal du Temps". Plus tard, au lieu de me remettre à la rédaction de mon roman, j'y ai plongé les yeux. Des moments de ma vie ont surgi en désordre : scènes banales ou incongrues, êtres perdus de vue, anecdotes auxquelles je n'aurais jamais repensé, comme la mise à mort d'un lapin, la folie d'une jeune plasticienne russe, un amnésique oublié, la femme qui voulait devenir un ange, les singes dans les ruines d'un temple khmer, les gosses cruels des rues du Caire... Fasciné, j'étais contraint de reconnaître comme un homme admet être le père d'un enfant que ces aventures invraisemblables, ces rencontres sans lendemain, étaient bien miennes. Le cristal m'en restituait chaque détail. Impitoyable, il m'infligeait aussi le souvenir de mes propres rêves et quelques images de mon avenir. Cette "vie réelle", j'ai voulu l'écrire. Ce vaste désordre s'est transmué en récits, histoires étranges et fragments romanesques. Explorateur en territoire dangereux, je racontais. Immense était ma reconnaissance envers le monde, sa variété, sa douleur et son énigme."--Page 4 of cover

Anselm Kiefer : unfruchtbare Landschaften : works from the 60's by Anselm Kiefer( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée du 19 mai au 26 juin 2010 à la galerie Yvon Lambert à Paris. La présente publication présente un ensemble de 83 oeuvres historiques des années 1960 d'Anselm Kiefer - des livres d'artiste composés de collages, dessins, aquarelles et peintures - jamais montrées ni reproduites à ce jour. Si les travaux de jeunesse de l'artiste, réalisés de manière artisanale avec des moyens modestes et des matériaux ordinaires, tranchent, sous leur aspect minimaliste, fragile et intimiste, avec le gigantisme, le grandiose et la maîtrise technique qui deviendront la marque de l'artiste, ils semblent pourtant annoncer la plupart des grands thèmes kieferiens développés dans les oeuvres postérieures. Ils constituent aussi une entreprise singulière qui interroge les relations entre l'art, la mémoire et les formes. Textes en français et en anglais
