Facing his sixty-third winter, novelist Auster sits down to write a history of his body and its sensations.

Changements : paradoxes et psychothérapie by Paul Watzlawick( Book )
5 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in French and held by 48 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "Comment, dans les relations humaines, les impasses apparaissent-elles ? Qu'est-ce qui fait que, souvent, nos tentatives de provoquer un changement ne font que nous emmurer dans un jeu sans fin? Il y a des changements qui ne sont que source de la permanence. Dire "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" équivaut, si l'on prend les choses par l'autre bout, à affirmer que ça change quand on s'y attend le moins. La technique ici proposée se situe délibérément à la surface : barrer le pourquoi ? - question qui porte sur les causes "profondes" - pour mettre en avant le quoi ? - interrogeant une situation ici et maintenant. Un chemin est frayé dans la forêt des paradoxes humains, qui va de Russel, Wittgenstein et Bateson à Groucho Marx. Entre la logique et l'humour, une thérapie est mise en place qui ne prétend point guérir autre chose que notre rapport présent à autrui."

Lost memory of skin by Russell Banks( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 47 libraries worldwide
This is a novel that illuminates the shadowed edges of contemporary American culture with startling and unforgettable results. Suspended in a strangely modern day version of limbo, the young man at the center of this morally complex new novel must create a life for himself in the wake of incarceration. Known in his new identity only as the Kid, and on probation after doing time for a liaison with an underage girl, he is shackled to a GPS monitoring device and forbidden to live within 2,500 feet of anywhere children might gather. With nowhere else to go, the Kid takes up residence under a south Florida causeway, in a makeshift encampment with other convicted sex offenders. Barely beyond childhood himself, the Kid, despite his crime, is in many ways an innocent, trapped by impulses and foolish choices he himself struggles to comprehend. Enter the Professor, a man who has built his own life on secrets and lies. A university sociologist of enormous size and intellect, he finds in the Kid the perfect subject for his research on homelessness and recidivism among convicted sex offenders. The two men forge a tentative partnership, the Kid remaining wary of the Professor's motives even as he accepts the counsel and financial assistance of the older man. When the camp beneath the causeway is raided by the police, and later, when a hurricane all but destroys the settlement, the Professor tries to help the Kid in practical matters while trying to teach his young charge new ways of looking at, and understanding, what he has done. But when the Professor's past resurfaces and threatens to destroy his carefully constructed world, the balance in the two men's relationship shifts. Suddenly, the Kid must reconsider everything he has come to believe, and choose what course of action to take when faced with a new kind of moral decision. In this novel the author examines the indistinct boundaries between our intentions and actions. It probes the zeitgeist of a troubled society where zero tolerance has erased any hope of subtlety and compassion, a society where isolating the offender has perhaps created a new kind of victim
