3 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in German and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Questionnée par un proche, dont le lien de parenté n'est pas précisé, l'auteure évoque ses souvenirs d'enfance. Elle tente d'échapper aux "jolis petits raccords", aux replâtrages habiles, qui sont monnaie courante dans ce genre de récits autobiographiques. Une oeuvre dans laquelle Sarraute a, à sa manière, capturé des "petits bouts de quelque chose d'encore vivant", qui s'arrête avec l'entrée au lycée de l'héroïne et constitue le plus accessible des écrits d'une auteure réputée difficile

Le planétarium, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )
5 editions published between 1960 and 1967 in German and held by 32 libraries worldwide
"The many narratives of The Planetarium, told from various points of view, revolve around a seemingly simple conceit: a young man has his heart and ambition set on his aunt's large apartment. But, as in Sarraute's other books, this plot forms only the surface of what is really happening. Instead, Sarraute focuses on the emotional lives and internal thoughts of her characters in a way that goes beyond what Virginia Woolf did years before.The spite the young man feels toward his mother-in-law for offering him and his wife cheap chairs for their apartment; the terror inspired during a confrontation between the same young man and his aunt; and the need for approval he feels when he's around his Gertrude Stein-like literary icon are some of the many internal conflicts that move the narrative forward through the minds of the conflicted and clashing characters. Always deeply engaging, The Planetarium uses a simple plot to reveal the disparity between the way we see ourselves and the way others see us."--Publisher's website
