Hunting and gathering by Anna Gavalda( Book )
154 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,702 libraries worldwide
It is the captivating, funny, tenderly ironic story of a collection of misfits in contemporary Paris? a near-anorexic artist, a chef, his granny, and a sad-sack aristocrat? who together become something more than the sum of their parts and make for a perfect novel. Camille is doing her best to disappear. She barely eats, works at night as a cleaner, and lives in a tiny attic room. Philibert Marquet de La Durbellière is a stammering, erudite aristocrat who sells postcards outside a museum. One evening, he overcomes his own excruciating reticence to rescue Camille, unconscious, from her freezing garret, and install her in the large, ornate apartment he is caretaking downstairs. He already has an unlikely flatmate, the foul-mouthed, talented working-class young chef, Franck. Together, this curious, damaged quartet may be able to face the world

Someone I loved by Anna Gavalda( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 433 libraries worldwide
"A woman is abandoned by her husband. Shaken by the betrayal, she and her two children are taken to the most unexpected of places to heal: the country farm of her remote and diffident father-in-law. What unfolds between them is a relationship that changes both their lives - one that transforms their notion of family and encourages a better understanding of each other and the choices of the heart." "With this deceptively simple novel Anna Gavalda delivers a romance about the unpredictability of love, the toll it takes on its victims - both innocent and guilty - and the unanticipated resilience of its survivors."--BOOK JACKET
I wish someone were waiting for me somewhere by Anna Gavalda( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 libraries worldwide
Love stories. Short Stories. Following the publication of Anna Gavalda's international bestseller, HUNTING AND GATHERING, this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda's witty and dazzling collection of stories, I WISH SOMEONE WERE WAITING FOR ME OMEWHERE, together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella, SOMEONE I LOVED I WISH SOMEONE WERE WAITING FOR ME SOMEWHERE explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness. SOMEONE I LOVED is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequenc- es that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance, "Someone I Loved" ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment
