The pigeon by Patrick Süskind( Book )

Jonathan Noel-already past fifty, with the last payment for his tiny attic room only months away, and his life's plan laid out ahead of him-opens his door one morning to find a pigeon in the landing. This atom-splitting disruption in the orderly existence of a most anxious creature of habit precipitates a series of crises that are as moving and dismaying as they are funny. Teetering precariously on the edge of madness, Jonathan careens headlong on a journey of the self that leads him-and us-from terrror to redemption, from darkness to light, to an emotional resolution that offers further proof of a virtuoso writer's extraordinary art

A boy's village childhood with all the traditional attributes - father, mother, brother, sister, a house on a lake, tree-climbing, going to the races, music lessons, a bicycle, a crush on a girl in the class - is bedevilled by the mystifying appearances of the eccentric Mr. Sommer. Moving through the landscape in silent haste, like a man possessed, with his empty rucksack and his long, odd-looking walking stick, Mr Sommer runs like a black thread through the boys days

he crosses only fleetingly but whose life - otherwise ordinary in every way - is forever changed by those few moments in time. At the story's conclusion, the enigmatic Mr. Summer, whose first name no one seems to know, who wanders silently through the countryside, and who is heard to utter but one sentence in the entire novel, appears to us as a man both noble and tragic, whose ultimate disappearance remains a mystery - and a secret - to all but the little boy he
Le parfum : histoire d'un meurtrier : roman by Patrick Süskind( Book )

"Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus géniaux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. Sa naissance, son enfance furent épouvantables et tout autre que lui n'aurait pas survécu. Mais Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Or ce monstre de Grenouille avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde, et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens les plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car 'qui maîtrisait les odeurs maîtrisait le cœur des hommes' C'est son histoire, abominable ... et drolatique, qui nous est racontée dans 'Le parfum', un best-seller mondial."
