The pigeon by Patrick Süskind( Book )

Jonathan Noel-already past fifty, with the last payment for his tiny attic room only months away, and his life's plan laid out ahead of him-opens his door one morning to find a pigeon in the landing. This atom-splitting disruption in the orderly existence of a most anxious creature of habit precipitates a series of crises that are as moving and dismaying as they are funny. Teetering precariously on the edge of madness, Jonathan careens headlong on a journey of the self that leads him-and us-from terrror to redemption, from darkness to light, to an emotional resolution that offers further proof of a virtuoso writer's extraordinary art

Mr. Summer's Story is, in fact, the story of the child whose path

"Zu der Zeit, als ich noch auf Bäume kletterte, lebte in unserem Dorf ein Mann mit Namen Herr Sommer. Kein Mensch wusste, wie Herr Sommer mit Vornamen hiess, und kein Mensch wusste auch, ob Herr Sommer einem Beruf nachging. Obwohl man über die Sommers und insbesondere über Herrn Sommer so gut wie nicht wusste, kann man doch mit Fug und Recht behaupten, dass es im Umkreis von mindestens sechzig Kilometern um den See herum keinen Menschen gab, Mann, Frau oder Kind - ja nicht einmal einen Hund -, der Herrn Sommer gekannt hätte, denn Herr Sommer war ständig unterwegs. Es mochte schneien oder hageln, es mochte stürmen oder wie aus Kübeln giessen, die Sonne mochte brennen, ein Orkan im Anzug sein, Herr Sommer war auf Wanderschaft

La 4e de couverture indique : Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus géniaux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille.

Mais Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Or ce monstre de Grenouille avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde, et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens les plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car « qui maîtrisait les odeurs maîtrisait le coeur des hommes »
