Lorsque j'ai commencé à passer mes après-midi dans la salle de bain, je ne comptais pas m'y installer ; non, je coulais là des heures agréables, méditant dans la baignoire avec le sentiment de pertinence miraculeuse que procure la pensée qu'il n'est nul besoin d'exprimer
Camera by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 312 libraries worldwide
"In this improbable love story, we meet a man who is obsessed with himself: how he does things and all the ways he might have done them, how he thinks, why he thinks the way that he thinks, how he might do or think otherwise. What happens? He takes driving lessons, goes grocery shopping, slowly yet methodically battles an olive on a plate. It is all simple and amusing until life intercedes: there is love, suddenly, and change, a flurry of emotion, and an unexpected incident with a camera on a ship. Only Jean-Philippe Toussaint - master of poignant deadpan - could write a novel at once so aloof and so touching, where we come to know our narrator intimately while knowing almost nothing about him."--BOOK JACKET
La télévision : [roman] by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 298 libraries worldwide
Dans le prolongement de feu le Nouveau Roman, mais en plus drôle dans la distanciation et la nonchalance, un récit précis, fouillé en un style presque maniaque. Pour lecteurs ayant apprécié ses quatre précédents, celui-ci sera le meilleur. De toutes façons, une expérience! [SDM]
Running away by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 286 libraries worldwide
A European man arrives in Shanghai, ostensibly on vacation, yet a small task given him by his Parisian girlfriend Marie starts a series of complications. There is a mysterious Chinese man and a manila envelope full of cash. Later, he meets a woman at an art gallery and they agree to travel together to Beijing, yet when he joins her at the train station, the Chinese man is along. Events eclipse explanations, and soon he surrenders himself to the on-rush of experience.Toussaint's latest novel pulls the reader into a jet-lag reality, a confusion of time and place that is both particularly modern and utterly real. The Chaplinesque slapstick of his acclaimed early works The Bathroom and Camera is here replaced by an ever-unfolding fabric of questions, coincidences, and misapprehensions large and small. The mature Toussaint shows himself to be no less ingenious an inventor of existential dilemmas, but with a new, surprising tenderness, and a deepened concern for the inexpressible immediacy and sensuality of human experience

L'urgence et la patience by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in French and German and held by 123 libraries worldwide
Wie beiläufig, unterhaltsam und doch so ungeheuer scharfsinnig führt Toussaint den Leser in sein literarisches Universum, erzählt von seinen Lektüren, von seinen ersten Schritten als junger Autor, von den berühmtesten der berühmten Autoren der Literaturgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts und blickt humorvoll-analytisch hinter die Kulissen der Weltliteratur. Die literarischen Begegnungen mit Proust, Kafka und Dostojewski und die Erweckungserlebnisse, die diese Lektüren zur Folge hatten, runden das Bild ab. Und dann natürlich die folgenschwerste Begegnung, die Begegnung mit dem Werk Becketts, dem er dann eines Tages in einem dunklen Flur persönlich gegenübersteht. Jean-Philippe Toussaint lebt in Brüssel und auf Korsika. Zuletzt erschien in der FVA sein Roman Die Wahrheit über Marie. Der 2012 erschienene Band "Die Dringlichkeit und die Geduld" erhielt begeisterte Kritiken und erreichte Platz 2 der Essay-Bestsellerliste von L'Express in Frankreich.-
Nue : roman by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 123 libraries worldwide
"La robe en miel était le point d'orgue de la collection automne-hiver de Marie. À la fin du défilé, l'ultime mannequin surgissait des coulisses vêtue de cette robe d'ambre et de lumière, comme si son corps avait été plongé intégralement dans un pot de miel démesuré avant d'entrer en scène. Nue et en miel, ruisselante, elle s'avançait ainsi sur le podium en se déhanchant au rythme d'une musique cadencée, les talons hauts, souriante, suivie d'un essaim d'abeilles qui lui faisait cortège en bourdonnant en suspension dans l'air, aimanté par le miel, tel un nuage allongé et abstrait d'insectes vrombissants qui accompagnaient sa parade."--Pages 4 of cover
The truth about Marie by Jean-Philippe Toussaint( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 119 libraries worldwide
"Moving through a variety of locales and adventures, The Truth About Marie revisits the unnamed narrator of Jean-Philippe Toussant's acclaimed Running Away, reporting on his now disintegrated relationship with the titular Marie--the story switching deftly between first and third person as the narrator continues to drift through life, and Marie does her best to get on with hers."--P.
