Most widely held works by Sophie Mayoux
Waiting for the barbarians by J. M Coetzee( Book )
5 editions published between 1982 and 2003 in French and held by 103 libraries worldwide
Parabole sur le pouvoir et la liberté, riche en scènes cauchemardesques: afin de prévenir les incursions des barbares (des nomades chasseurs) dans une oasis du désert, le pouvoir central organise des expéditions punitives. L'auteur a sans doute voulu anticiper sur l'évolution de la situation en Afrique du Sud (torture, représailles, désolation)
The remains of the day by Kazuo Ishiguro( Book )
14 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in French and held by 93 libraries worldwide
The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence

When prophecy fails by Leon Festinger( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 85 libraries worldwide
"The behaviour of a small group of people who believe that they have been forewarned of the impending end of the world would be dismissed by many social scientists as interesting but hardly researchable. The authors of this book are to be commended, not only for undertaking a difficult task, but for doing it remarkably well...Using the participant observer method, this research team collected an impressive body of data in the brief span of two months. Their research resulted in convincing, if not definitive, confirmation of their hypotheses. At the same time, it constitutes a stimulating example of the adaptation of method to a significant subject, rather than the selection of the research topic because it fits the latest fads in methodology." [American Sociological Review]

The robber bridegroom by Eudora Welty( Book )
4 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in French and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Legendary figures of Mississippi's colorful past--keel-boatman Mike Fink and the dread Harp brothers--along with characters from Eudora Welty's own delightful imagination people this rollicking fantasy set along the Natchez Trace. Berry-stained bandit Jamie Lockhart steals pioneer wilderness planter Clement Musgrove's beautiful daughter, Rosamond, away from a home dominated by his ugly, evil second wife, Salome. These and other characters are gathered together in a tale at once acid and gentle, wise and lighthearted, woven as much from the rough homespun of American history as the gossamer thread of fairy stories
