Piano music for four hands by Roger Grenier( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 249 libraries worldwide
"" "Piano Music for Four Hands" is a novel about music and love set against three generations of French history. At its center is a charming but melancholy pianist named Michel Mailhoc. Having survived a series of bungled love affairs and professional disappointments, he retreats to his family house in the Pyrenees. The bright spot in his life is his grandniece Emma, who becomes his prizewinning student. Struggling with his fervent desire for her success and the fear of losing her, Michel sends Emma into the world of international musical stardom that he has renounced for himself. The Mailhoc family saga, stretching from World War I to the turbulent 1960s, is full of sorrow, but the underlying melody remains tender and humorous. From the first sentence we feel curiously at home in Roger Grenier's intimate, precise, and musical writing

Un honnête journaliste tombe entre les mains d'un habitué de l'exil, faux médecin, vrai malfrat. Il s'intéresse beaucoup à Luciana, la troublante épouse du génial affabulateur. Ses ennuis commencent... Un très bon roman, par un "maître de l'insidieux" (admiré de F. Nourissier et C. Roy), très classique, et qui emprunte quelques reflets au roman noir et au polar (cf. l'article de Jacques Folch-Ribas dans "La Presse" du 23 mars 1985, et celui de Lisette Morin dans "Le Devoir" du même jour).

"En prenant des chemins quelque peu buissonniers, par exemple en allant voir quelle place les écrivains donnent aux faits divers, aux délices et aux affres de l'attente, à la tentation de l'inachevé, aux rapports entre vie privée et écriture, à la façon d'écrire l'amour, ces essais adoptent tout naturellement la revendication de Baudelaire sur le droit de se contredire. Et ils aboutissent à deux questions : Qu'est-ce qu'écrire? Écrire est-il une raison de vivre? L'une et l'autre, on s'en doute, ne peuvent que rester sans réponse."--Page 4 of cover
