The roots of heaven by Romain Gary( Book )

163 editions published between 1956 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Roots of Heaven by Romain Gary follows Morel, a Frenchman who survives the Holocaust - a survival he credits to imagining elephants roaming the wilderness. Once free, he travels to French Equatorial Africa with the aim of saving his beloved elephants from being hunted and killed for meat and ivory. Realizing his more conventional tactics are not eliciting a response, however, he turns militant, and the story takes a dark turn. This novel examines the corrosive force of human desensitization, and it is one of the first classic ecological novels of our time." --
Lady L. : a novel by Romain Gary( Book )

175 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in 18 languages and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a thoroughly interesting tale about aristocracy, appearances and amour! We meet the aging version of Lady L at her 80th birthday party. All of her esteemed grandchildren, her son and their families have gathered. On her estate is a pavilion, which Lady L keeps locked with her treasured memorabilia. The land is being taken by the government and so the pavilion must be demolished. Most of the book happens in flashback as Lady L takes her trusted but stuffy friend Percy whose help she needs in saving the pavilion and relates to him the beginning of a young girl Annette Boudin whose father was an anarchist and whose mother ran away with another man. Her unusual upbringing was complicated by her father's demise, where the unusually attractive young woman took to earning her way in the world's oldest profession. She meets the also greatly attractive Armand Denis, who happens to also be an anarchist and delights in assassinations of powerful royal figures across Europe. As the tale unfolds, Lady L is taken under wing by a powerful but bohemian wealthy man named Glendale nearing the end of his life. Discovering she is pregnant with Armand's child, she marries Glendale to protect her child. She assumes a great estate and wealth upon Glendale's passing. The story comes to a crashing climax as years later when the now known Lady L in her second society marriage gets word that Armand has been released from prison. The flames of passion run through her again. The novel comes to a crashing conclusion with its final heist and Lady L's revealed secret of why she cares so deeply about what will happen to her pavilion. --Lee Armstrong at This book was made into a 1965 movie of the same title

Jacques Rainier, cinquante-neuf ans, industriel, est aux prises avec des difficultés en affaires au moment où sa liaison avec une jeune Brésilienne le rend très heureux. À la suite des confidences angoissées d'un ami obsédé par le mythe de la virilité, la peur du déclin sexuel s'insinue en lui, l'envahit, le détruit, ne le quitte plus. En osant s'attaquer à un sujet tabou, Gary a soulevé un débat passionné, qui a connu un grand retentissement.

Je vous préviens que ça ne se passera pas comme ça. Il est exact que je viens d'avoir quatre-vingt-cinq ans. Mais de là à me croire nul et non avenu, il y a un pas que je ne vous permets pas de franchir. Il y a une chose que je tiens à vous dire. Je tiens à vous dire, mes jeunes amis, que je n'ai pas échappé aux nazis pendant quatre ans, à la Gestapo, à la déportation, aux rafles pour le Vél'd'Hiv', aux chambres à gaz et à l'extermination pour me laisser faire par une quelconque mort dite naturelle de troisième ordre, sous de miteux prétextes physiologiques. Les meilleurs ne sont pas parvenus à m'avoir, alors vous pensez qu'on ne m'aura pas par la routine. Je n'ai pas échappé à l'holocauste pour rien, mes petits amis. J'ai l'intention de vivre vieux, qu'on se le tienne pour dit !

Chien Blanc raconte l'histoire de Batka, un grand berger allemand qui fait irruption dans la vie de l'auteur et de sa femme, la célèbre actrice Jean Seberg. L'action se déroule en Californie, puis en France, au début de 1968, en pleine lutte des Noirs pour leurs droits civiques et pendant les émeutes raciales qui suivent l'assassinat de Martin Luther King. Jean Seberg est à cette époque très engagée personnellement aux côtés des Américains Noirs. Au grand dam de ses nouveaux maîtres, Batka se révèle être un Chien Blanc c'est-à-dire un chien élevé dans un des états du Sud et dressé férocement contre les Noirs. Ne pouvant se résoudre à l'abattre et refusant l'irrémédiable, Romain Gary décide avec l'aide d'un Noir, Keys, de ré-éduquer le chien
