"Les nouvelles qui composent ce recueil se passent toutes en Pologne, à diverses époques. Rééditées ici dans une nouvelle traduction pour certaines, encore inédites en français pour d'autres, elles comptent parmi les plus belles qu'Isaac Bashevis Singer ait jamais écrites. On y retrouve les sages et les fous, les marchands et les rabbins, les amoureuses, les bandits, les étudiants, les tailleurs, les colporteurs qu'il nous a appris à connaître et à aimer. On n'oubliera pas le Spinoza de la rue du Marché qui découvre l'amour à soixante-dix ans bien sonnés, ni cette coquine de Glicka Genendel qui se cherche un nouveau mari, pas plus que l'infortunée Lise, que le diable tente

The certificate by Isaac Bashevis Singer( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's 1922 and David Bendiger, an aspiring eighteen-and-a-half-year-old writer, arrives in Warsaw, penniless and homeless. His only contacts are Sonya, a young woman with whom he has had amorous dealings in the village they have left, and a Zionist functionary who informs him he has qualified for a certificate permitting him to emigrate to Palestine. But in order to make the journey David must enter into a fictitious marriage with a woman so eager to get to Palestine that she will pay all the expenses. While David waits for his certificate, he becomes involved not only with Sonya but with Edusha, the sexually avant-garde Communist Party member in whose apartment he finds a temporary haven; and with Minna, the well-to-do young woman who wants to join her fiance in Palestine and agrees to "marry" David. Grappling with romantic, political, and youthful turmoil, David also confronts his literary future and religious past when his older brother - a writer disillusioned by a recent sojourn in Russia - and his father, an Orthodox rabbi, both turn up in Warsaw. The Certificate was serialized in Yiddish in 1967, but may have been written much earlier. The translator, Leonard Wolf, in a postscript calls it "a very young man's book" and "certainly the most playful of Singer's long fictions", with its alternately comic and poignant shifts in plot. Young David's passions for women, philosophizing, Jewish religious speculation, and Walter Mitty-like fantasies make The Certificate a captivating novel in the great tradition of a master storyteller

"The diamond as big as the Ritz" and other stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness." Although this novella stands out from his body of work in that it's a playful yet sinister fairy tale, it brilliantly fuses F. Scott Fitzgerald's ongoing lush fantasies about the extremes of wealth with his much more somber understanding of what underpins it. Loosely inspired by a summer he spent as a teenager working on a ranch in Montana, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz is Fitzgerald's hallucinatory paean to the American West and all its promises. It's the story of John T. Unger, a young Southerner who goes to Montana for summer vacation with a wealthy college classmate. But the classmate's family proves to be much more than simply wealth: they own a mountain made entirely of one solid diamond. And they've gone to dreadful lengths to conceal their secret ... meaning John could be in danger
