Most widely held works by Bernard Turle
A concise history of Indian art by Roy C Craven( Book )
7 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in French and held by 79 libraries worldwide
The grave, sensuous and infinitely varied arts of India have long been admired in the West. Until now there has been no concise guide to the subject as a whole. The author tells the story clearly and vividly from the first, still mysterious, beginnings in the Indus valley, through the great masterpieces of Buddhist and Hindu art to the coming of Islam, the eclectic culture of the Mughal court and the golden age of Indian miniature painting. Much of this art is immediately accessible to the outsider, but much is also enigmatic, needing interpretation and guidance before it can be enjoyed in depth: the strange pantheon of the Hindu gods, the subtle insights of Buddhist mysticism or the complex symbolism of the miniatures

The zone of interest : a novel by Martin Amis( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 37 libraries worldwide
"From one of England's most renowned authors, an unforgettable new novel that provides a searing portrait of life-and, shockingly, love-in a concentration camp. Once upon a time there was a king, and the king commissioned his favorite wizard to create a magic mirror. This mirror didn't show you your reflection. It showed you your soul-it showed you who you really were. The wizard couldn't look at it without turning away. The king couldn't look at it. The courtiers couldn't look at it. A chestful of treasure was offered to anyone who could look at it for sixty seconds without turning away. And no one could. The Zone of Interest is a love story with a violently unromantic setting. Can love survive the mirror? Can we even meet each other's eye, after we have seen who we really are? In a novel powered by both wit and pathos, Martin Amis excavates the depths and contradictions of the human soul"--

Diplomat, actor, translator, spy by Bernard Turle( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
"In recent years theories about translation have proliferated. Yet surprisingly little has been written about what it actually feels like to be a translator: to spend one's days devoted to the words of another. Bernard Turle's Diplomat, Actor, Translator, Spy seeks to address certain prevailing translation theories, but above all to give a sense of the true task of the translator - a daily grind that is anything but abstract. Through twenty-six alphabetically organised recollections, anecdotes, fantasies, and dreams, he vividly conveys what it is that drew him to becoming a translator, evoking the delights as well as the frustrations of his chosen profession." http://www.aup.edu/cwt/cahiers.htm
