The first fingerprint by Xavier-Marie Bonnot ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In an underwater cavern off the coast west of Marseille are the first human engravings known to man. Among them is a crude drawing of a three-fingered hand, which has long puzzled archaeologists. Is it a hunting signal' A mystic sign invoking the spirits' Or is it, as many believe, evidence of ritual mutilation in a Shamanistic world' "The Hunter" evidently believes the latter. Driven by inhuman voices to maim and kill, he severs the body parts of his victims'and signs his savagery with a print of a three-fingered hand. Commandant Michel de Palma, of the Marseille murder squad, heads to the university in Aix-en-Provence to investigate further, but the clique of pre-history professors he encounters are as hard to unravel as the meaning of the cave-drawing itself. As he gets closer to the truth, the group of academics close ranks. Slowly and alone, de Palma begins pursuing a mystery that dates back to the Ice age. The First Fingerprint introduces a policeman as polished as he is brutal, as charming as he is deceptive. Michel de Palma, called "the Baron" by his colleagues, knows the dark underside of the city of Marseille as do none of his rivals. But his enemies are everywhere: in the crime-infested sinks of the suburbs; in the sleek and squalid bars of the old quarter; even in the police ranks themselves

A thousand pearls (for a thousand pennies) by Hervé Le Tellier ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"...This delightful book offers a thousand answers to the question, 'What are you thinking?' (Or, as translator Ian Monk puts it: 'Penny for them?') The answers are spontaneous, revealing, ominous, insignificant, grotesque, amusing, lecherous, tragic, and trivial by turns, and lovable in their cheerful imperfection."--P. [4] of cover
New impressions of Africa Nouvelles impressions d'Afrique by Raymond Roussel ( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poet, novelist, playwright, and chess enthusiast, Raymond Roussel (1877-1933) was one of the French belle époque's most compelling literary figures. During his lifetime, Roussel's work was vociferously championed by the surrealists, but never achieved the widespread acclaim for which he yearned. New Impressions of Africa is undoubtedly Roussel's most extraordinary work. Since its publication in 1932, this weird and wonderful poem has slowly gained cult status, and its admirers have included Salvador Dalì--who dubbed it the most "ungraspably poetic" work of the era--André Breton, Jean Cocteau

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Winter journeys ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1979, Georges Perec wrote a brief entertainment for a publisher's catalogue, and "The Winter Journey" quickly became his most frequently reprinted short story. Set on the eve of the Second World War, it recounts the discovery of a great literary masterpiece that conceals a scandalous secret at the heart of modern French literature ... The present volume includes, and then extends Perec's brief parable. Over two decades his fellow Oulipians have written twenty sequels to this tale, between 1992 and January of this year."--Page [4] of cover
