Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This original dual-language short story collection features fifteen newly translated works by important 20th-century authors. Previously unavailable in English versions, these stories cover a diverse range of styles and themes and offer fascinating insights into life and literature in France and French-speaking countries.

Contents include  "L'ami et la femme" by Irène Némirovsky, "Pleure, Pleure!" by Andrée Maillet, and tales by Simone Schwarz-Bart, Sailesh Ramchurn, Fred Kassak, Yann Means, Marc Villard, and others. The text is completely self-contained — no further apparatus or reference is necessary. Appropriate for high school and college courses, this dual-language edition is also ideal for independent study.
