As for her mother, she's too depressed. Something to do with the photo of the dead boy on the mantelpiece. Monsieur Bihotz, her neighbour who lives alone now his mother has died, is supposed to be her babysitter but Solange has other ideas. There's really not much scope in her boring village, Cleves.

Il faut beaucoup aimer les hommes : roman by Marie Darrieussecq( Book )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The French title of Men plays on a quote by Marguerite Duras: We have to love men a lot. A lot, a lot. Love them a lot in order to love them. Otherwise it's impossible, we couldn't bear them.' With her characteristic intensity, edginess and humour, Marie Darrieussecq explores female desire, what it means to be a woman. Solange was a provincial teenager in All the Way ; now in her thirties, she's not a great mother, is a mediocre actress, but in Hollywood she falls for a charismatic actor, Kouhouesso, who wants to direct a movie of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness --in Africa. He's black; she's white--what's the difference when it comes to love, she wonders? Solange follows her man to Africa, determined to play a main role in both his film and his affections. But nothing goes to plan in this brilliantly droll examination of romance, movie-making and clichés about race relations. After all, there's no guarantee you'll be loved by the one you love. Personal and political, passionate and engaged, Men is a novel that will make you see things differently."--Syndetics

Rapport de police : accusations de plagiat et autres modes de surveillance de la fiction by Marie Darrieussecq( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in French and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accusée à deux reprises de plagiat - une première fois par Marie NDiaye en 1998 - et plus récemment par Camille Laurens, Marie Darrieussecq a voulu comprendre ce qui lui était arrivé et, bien sûr, se défendre de cette accusation renouvelée. Elle s'est donc penchée sur la notion de plagiat, sur l'histoire de ce concept à travers la littérature. Elle s'est aperçue que nombre d'écrivains, et pas des moindres, ont eu à subir cette accusation. Et s'il ne s'agit pas de banaliser par le nombre - tous plagiaires - il s'agit de se demander comment on en arrive là. À quoi sert-elle, cette accusation de plagiat ? Comment << prend-elle >>, pourquoi trouve-t-elle toujours tant d'échos ? Qu'est-ce que cela veut dire, d'un état de la critique et des institutions littéraires, d'un état de la société puisque la littérature fait symptôme ? Que l'accusation de plagiat soit une tentative d'assassinat symbolique, c'est une évidence. Concurrence entre écrivains, conflits de personnes et autres trivialités psychologiques, certes. Mais l'intérêt de cette ample étude est aussi de démontrer qu'elle participe d'un dispositif plus vaste : un empêchement général, une chape de plomb faite d'interdits, de sacralité et d'anathèmes. Une surveillance de la fiction, qui vaut pour toute écriture non appropriée, et dont est retracée ici la longue histoire, de Platon au goulag

Nigel Cooke by Nigel Cooke( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An in-depth look at the work and career of this fascinating artist, who is having a profound impact on contemporary painting. Nigel Cooke is known for his complex paintings, which thematically explore the meeting point between creative labour, consciousness, art history, consumer culture, and nature. Primarily centred on meticulously painted, large-scale urban landscapes, which he calls 'hybrid theatrical spaces', Cooke's work employs disparate styles, often integrating trompe l'oeil miniature rocks and trees with backdrops of graffiti-marked buildings, to create scenes conveying obscure and macabre narratives. This survey of Cooke's career to date explores the artist's style, approach, and impact on contemporary art and includes his very latest works, completed shortly before publication
Portraits in lace : Breton Women by Charles Fréger( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in French and English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a unique illustrated study of a centuries-old costume tradition that continues to thrive in Brittany today. Charles Fréger has photographed a series of portraits of Breton women wearing costumes and headdresses of endless variety: from high starched towers to elaborately pinned, tucked and embroidered confections of handmade lace, as delicate as they are distinctive. Each costume and headdress may indicate a wearr's village, as well as age or status. They are worn for celebrations of a marriage, birth, or a local saint's day, or to mark a period of mourning. Against a translucent gauze backdrop, young girls, women both married and unmarried, mothers, sisters and grandmothers pose in costume for these photographic portraits. Over fifty headdresses are introduced and described in a separate reference section, accompanied by specially commissioned illustrations. Fréger's exceptional photographs demonstrate a wealth of pride and personal expression that make this book a unique testament to a living tradition
