Dear reader by Paul Fournel( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's a lot of good to be said about publishing, mainly about the food. The books, though - Robert Dubois feels as if he's read the books, but still they keep coming back to him, the same old books just by new authors. Maybe he's ready to settle into the end of his career, like it's a tipsy afternoon after a working lunch. But then he is confronted with a gift: a piece of technology, a gizmo, a reader ... Dear Reader takes a wry, affectionate look at the world of publishing, books and authors, and is a very funny, moving story about the passing of the old and the excitement of the new. From the Trade Paperback edition

Little girls breathe the same air as we do by Paul Fournel( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1994 in French and English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these nineteen episodes Paul Fournel recreates the dreams, fears, and growing pains of a group of French schoolgirls. The ten young classmates bring their own wisdom and frank perception to a host of adolescent crises, some comic, others tragic: the death of a beloved mother, adjustment to a new parent, the special pains of an overweight child, and the conflicting emotions of puberty. Fournel tells us with a voice that is never sentimental and never patronizing that children are not a race apart. If we have ever been tempted to view childhood as a time of predictable responses and simple decisions, these little girls refresh our naive memories. The stories are not tied to a specific time or place. Instead, their arena and their appeal are universal

ANQUETIL, ALONE by Paul Fournel( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legend of Jacques Anquetil, controversial French cycling star of the 60s, told through the eyes of novelist and childhood Anquetil fan Paul Fournel. There are things he does alone, and things that he alone does.Jacques Anquetil was a cyclist with an aristocratic demeanor and a relaxed attitude to rules and morals. His womanising and frank admissions of doping appalled 1960s French society, even as his five Tour de France wins enthralled it. Paul Fournel was besotted with him from the start ('Too young to understand, I was nevertheless old enough to admire') and followed Anquetil's career with the passion of a fan and the eye of a poet. In this stunningly original biography of a complex and divisive character, Fournel - author of the seminal Velo (or Need for the Bike)- blends the story of Anquetil's life with scenes from his own, to create a classic of cycling literature
