La ravissante Holly Golightly mène une vie légère et frivole et traîne sur la Cinquième Avenue devant la vitrine de Tiffany, célèbre joaillier new-yorkais.

Dans ce célèbre roman adapté au cinéma avec Audrey Hepburn, Truman Capote mêle humour et désespoir avec une sensibilité rare. -- 4ème de couverture

The sheltering sky by Paul Bowles( Book )
23 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in French and held by 77 libraries worldwide
Edition originale, 1949. "Le désert est si grand et pourtant rien ne s'y perd jamais vraiment". Cette réflexion d'un personnage donne bien le ton de ce roman fitzgéraldien qui à d'autres moments, rappelle Malcolm Lowry. L'oeuvre raconte la destruction d'un couple de voyageurs exilés et richissimes, "aristocrates du dépaysement et du désenchantement", comme l'écrit J.F. Chaix. Elle peut se lire comme une métaphore de l'après-guerre et comme "une anticipation de folie voyageuse" des années 1960-1970

Elevé dans le quartier israélite de Newark, par des parents abusifs, brillant étudiant, puis fonctionnaire en vue, il n'en reste pas moins un "bubala", un bébé aux yeux de ses parents
Carrie : [a novel of a girl with a frightening power] by Stephen King( Book )
24 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in French and held by 71 libraries worldwide
Dans la ligne de ##L'exorciste## (mais sans les implications religieuses), un extraordinaire récit où une jeune fille génétiquement télépathe sème la terreur par vengeance. Ecrit sous forme de documentaire avec insertions de notices de journaux et d'ouvrages psychopathologiques, le roman se déroule dans un proche avenir permettant à l'auteur d'extrapoler. En somme, une lecture qui, sans exploiter la terreur facile, procure une bonne détente et débouche sur la science-fiction. [SDM]

Mr. Sammler's planet by Saul Bellow( Book )
4 editions published between 1972 and 1985 in French and held by 37 libraries worldwide
"Sammler, a New Yorker in his seventies, a refugee from Nazism, a thinker of complex thoughts, a touchstone around whom a heterogeneous group revolves, is not simply the protagonist but the prime mover of a many-sided novel held together by the centripetal force of his presence. The counterpoint of personalities, subplots, and incidents constitutes a tragi-comic commentary on twentieth-century urban life but it is Sammler's considered reflections on that life that dominate a novel which, most movingly, asks basic questions about how we live and what we live for at this chaotic point in history. Portions of the novel first appeared in the Atlantic."--Booklist Review
