Marguerite Duras : a life by Laure Adler( Book )

60 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marguerite Duras was one of twentieth-century France's most influential and complex figures - a phenomenally productive and daring writer and filmmaker, a passionate political activist, and a charismatic and infuriating friend and lover. Duras drew constantly on her own experience in her art, often blurring the boundaries between the two. In this researched and involving biography, Laure Adler leads us through Duras's eventful life, sifting fact from fiction by drawing on letters, diaries, and notebooks, as well as many hours of tape-recorded conversations with Duras herself."--Jacket

Dangerous women : the perils of muses and femmes fatales by Laure Adler( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of sixty powerfully seductive women, from Biblical times to the present day, featuring mythical and real heroines. The most memorable stories throughout history feature a powerful, seductive woman who has an irresistible hold over the man in her life. The alluring Cleopatra, like Helen of Troy, inspired lovers to the battlefield in a brave display of loyalty. Eve and Pandora wreacked havoc when they tempted men to defy the laws of the day. Traitorous Dalila brought the all-powerful Samson to his knees as she divested him of his magical mane. Lovesick Juliet and Hamlet's Ophelia chose death over life in a courageous display of honor to their forbidden passion. The enchanting Scheherazade of One Thousand and One Nights saved herself from certain death through her exceptional capacity for storytelling. Each of these women was brave and steadfast, and their stories have inspired artists throughout the history of art. In this gallery of femmes fatales, feminist historian Laure Adler guides us through the ages to rediscover incredible heroines. Their stories are illustrated with iconic works by masters such as da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Rubens, Goya, Sargent, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, Saint Phalle, and Tracey Emin

A long Saturday : conversations by George Steiner( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Steiner is one of the preeminent intellectuals of our time. The Washington Post has declared that no one else writing on literature can match him as polymath and polyglot, and few can equal the verve and eloquence of his writing, while the New York Times says of his works that the erudition is almost as extraordinary as the prose: dense, knowing, allusive. Reading in many languages, celebrating the survival of high culture in the face of modern barbarisms, Steiner probes the ethics of language and literature with unparalleled grace and authority. A Long Saturday offers intimate insight into the questions that have absorbed him throughout his career. In a stimulating series of conversations, Steiner and journalist Laure Adler discuss a range of topics, including Steiner's boyhood in Vienna and Paris, his education at the University of Chicago and Harvard, and his early years in academia. Books are a touchstone throughout, but Steiner and Adler's conversations also range over music, chess, psychoanalysis, the place of Israel in Jewish life, and beyond. Blending thoughts on subjects of broad interest in the humanities the issue of honoring Richard Wagner and Martin Heidegger in spite of their politics, or Virginia Woolf's awareness of the novel as a multivocal form, for example with personal reflections on life and family, Steiner demonstrates why he is considered one of today's greatest minds. Revealing and exhilarating, A Long Saturday invites readers to pull up a chair and listen in on a conversation with a master

Françoise by Laure Adler( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Et si Françoise Giroud était encore plus grande que sa légende? Plus riche, plus complexe, plus intéressante que l'image d'Epinal de la jeune femme talentueuse qui devint la première journaliste de son temps? La trajectoire, on la connaît : engagée par Hélène Lazareff à la création de Elle puis cofondatrice de L'Express, et enfin chroniqueuse au Nouvel Observateur, l'ex script-girl de Jean Renoir avait le sens des phrases assassines : la griffe sous le sourire enjôleur. Compagne et complice de Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber, farouche opposante à la guerre d'Algérie, amie fidèle de Mendès France et de Mitterrand, celle qui "inventa" la Nouvelle Vague et roulait en décapotable fut une grande amoureuse, aimant le plaisir autant que le devoir. Femme politique, cette fille d'immigré turcs ne passa jamais son bac, mais devint Secrétaire d'Etat à la condition féminine sous Giscard d'Estaing. Travailleuse acharnée, élégante en diable, éprise de liberté, c'était une visionnaire, qui incarna la naissance de la femme moderne. Mais on découvre ici que ce tempérament passionné a aussi ses zones d'ombre - expérience de la trahison, coup de folie passionnelle, tentative de suicide, mort d'un fils ... Et si une phrase de sa mère, sur son lit de mort, avait déterminé sa trajectoire et son destin? A travers le portrait d'une femme d'exception, c 'est une époque de feu que ressuscite ici Laure Adler : un temps, pas si lointain, où l'on savait encore se battre pour des idéaux

Immortelles : roman by Laure Adler( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Florence, Suzanne, Judith. Elles forment une sarabande dans ma tête. Leur amitié m'a construite et m'a rendue différente. Avec elles, j'ai ressenti ce à quoi nous ne pensions jamais, ce que vivre signifiait." Une nuit d'été, la narratrice se réveille, submergée par une vague de souvenirs qu'elle croyait enfouis dans l'oubli. Sous ses yeux défilent les vies de trois amies avec qui elle a grandi, trois femmes aux destins poignants, trois parties d'elle qu'elle rassemble soudain. Roman sur la jeunesse, ses espérances, ses illusions, ses foucades et ses coups de foudre, Immortelles est surtout un hymne à l'amitié féminine."--Page 4 of cover
Yamamoto & Yohji by Yohji Yamamoto( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early '80s, Yohji Yamamoto's groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his anti-fashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. In Yamamoto & Yohji, this luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his forty years of counter-fashion design showing for the very first time his work not only on the Yamamoto brands but as well on his brand Y's and these various collaborations in architecture, movies, plays, literature. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme - his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design - and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time." --from book description, Amazon.com
