6 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and held by 445 libraries worldwide
Clutching ever-present rosary beads, shifting uncomfortably within the hairshirt he wears as continual penance--and always eyeing the women as they pass--Tartuffe, Moliére's master of unctuous evil, insinuates himself into a wealthy Parisian household in this indictment of religious hypocrisy. Posing as a holy man, the wily Tartuffe entrances Orgon, a credulous well-to-do merchant, bent on bestowing his worldly goods, social position, and nubile daughter on the perfidious fraud. Tartuffe delights in accepting it all--and also arranges a little depraved dalliance with Orgon's young wife, Elmire
The indoor boy by Antony Sher( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and Hebrew and held by 377 libraries worldwide
In Ottoman Turkey, the indoor boy was a non-Moslem who provided sexual services for the master of a great house and in exchange might receive enlightenment, certainly education. Trade-offs of such dubious merit are the currency in this comically erotic, unbridled novel. Antony Sher introduces an antihero as offensive and compelling as Martin Amis's John Self. Leon Lipschitz is a rich, white, bi-sexual, Jewish South African, a man of decadent appetites and a self-proclaimed escapee from the three As (AIDS, apartheid, and anti-Semitism). Yes, paradise is closing down, and Leon will go to any lengths to avoid taking notice. He rarely leaves his opulent London house, and the very touch of money makes him wash his hands as compulsively as Lady Macbeth, though he has no trouble spending the funds he still gets from his white supremacist father - mostly on booze, drugs, and rent-boys. Then Leon meets Gertjie, another exile, who knows a little too much about the secret workings of South Africa's security apparatus - victim? perpetrator? - no one can establish. Gertjie is a shadow twin who will show the drug-addled Leon truths that he and his homeland have taken insane measures to deny, but only after he has become the sexual obsession both of Leon and of Leon's leftist wife. Course, daring, riddled with indelicate sex, The Indoor Boy is a savagely original work. -- from dust jacket

Moliere by Mikhail Bulgakov( visu )
11 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
In this vivid picture of the demeaning nature of tyranny, Molier̀e, at the beginning an imposing, confident theatre director, playfully wooing his mistress, gradually disintegrates to a grovelling, broken-down sycophant, snivelling at the Sun King's feet. This consummate artist plays the supplicating child, depending on the crown to continue his art. Based on events in the life of the renowned French playwright, the play shows Molière as a man beset by church and state because of his sharp-penned satire of both in "Tartuffe." Both plays focus on the theme of hypocrisy--and both were initially banned from production in their originating countries
