Most widely held works by Joanna Kilmartin
The lovers of Algeria : [a novel] by Anouar Benmalek( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 561 libraries worldwide
Nine-year-old Jallal is old enough to know that his life in Algeria is precarious at best - friends are as likely to kill you as save you. Having run away from home, he lives by selling peanuts and single cigarettes on the street. The proposal by the elderly Swiss woman named Anna is shocking and preposterous: travel with her through war-ravaged lands, as a translator, so she can find her lost husband and pray over the graves of their murdered children. To Anna, however, the risk is no less than when they first met in Algeria during yet another time of unspeakable terror decades ago. As Anna and her lover, battered by time and memory, circle each other, [the author] asks what of humanity endures in dangerously lawless times. -Back cover

Solaris by Stanisław Lem( Book )
9 editions published between 1971 and 2003 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
"When psychologist Kris Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to study the ocean that covers its surface, he finds himself confronting a painful memory embodied in the physical likeness of a past lover. Kelvin learns that hs is not alone in this, and that other crews examining the planet are plagued with their own repressed and newly real memories. Could it be, as Solaris scientists speculate, that the ocean may be a massive neural center creating these memories, for a reason no one can identify? Long considered a classic, Solaris asks the question: Can we understand the universe around us without first understanding what lies within?" -- back cover
Dora Bruder by Patrick Modiano( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 286 libraries worldwide
"Patrick Modiano opens Dora Bruder by telling how in 1988 he stumbled across an ad in the personal columns of the New Year's Eve 1941 edition of Paris Soir. Placed by the parents of a 15-year-old Jewish girl, Dora Bruder, who had run away from her Catholic boarding school, the ad sets Modiano off on a quest to find out everything he can about Dora and why, at the height of German reprisals, she ran away on a bitterly cold day from the people hiding her. He finds only one other official mention of her name on a list of Jews deported from Paris to Auschwitz in September 1942."

"Gilles Lantier is thirty-five, attractive, with a beautiful mistress and a job in Paris as a journalist. He seems to have all that life can offer. But suddenly he is overwhelmed by despair. Nothing seems worth while. In panic at his boredom, and hating Eloïse, his model girlfriend, he flees for some peace to his sister and her dull husband in the provinces. Here he meets Nathalie, the wife of a country lawyer. She falls deeply in love with him, a passion to which he soon responds. But back in Paris her innate goodness contrasts oddly with the frivolity of Gilles's life. Soon it seems as if their relationships is doomed, as if their happiness is a mere gleam of sunlight on cold water" -- p. [4] of cover
