Mountain R by Jacques Jouet( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The president of the Republican Council, wanting to "do something big," proposes building a 1,500-meter-high mountain as a monument to the nation's greatness. Employing political double-talk at its worst, the president convinces the Council to proceed with this insane, grandiose plan by heralding its hoped-for benefits: the project will reduce unemployment, attract hordes of tourists, solve the problem of garbage (the filler for this artificial mountain), and increase revenue by licensing the idea to other countries." "Told in three distinct parts and from three different points of view, Mountain R records the disasters that result from political corruption and manipulative leaders."--Jacket

Savage by Jacques Jouet( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in French and English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the life of Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin, Jacques Jouet's Savage compels the reader to ask whether it is the primitive or the civilized man who is savage.

Influenced by several exotic lovers, a quirky vieille dame, and Édouard Manet himself, Paul's increasingly unconventional designs parallel his increasingly unbalanced state of mind as he struggles to find a market for his work among the haute bourgeoisie. The failure of this venture, coupled with psychosis due to an untreated illness, ultimately leads to his demise

My beautiful bus by Jacques Jouet( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poetic, comic, obsessed with minutiae, My Beautiful Bus is a welcome dose of serious frivolity at the expense of the contemporary novel. Based on an actual bus trip across France taken by Oulipo-member Jacques Jouet in the late '80s, his fictional reconstruction of the experience twenty years later focuses not so much on the scenery as on the possibilities offered an author by the eponymous vehicle and its occupants. With detours through everything from Puss in Boots to Pascal's maxims, we are introduced to each eccentric passenger as they climb aboard (one, for example, claims to have a corps
