Short Stories in French (New Penguin Parallel Texts) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by authors from Quebec as well as France, the majority of these stories have been published in the last decade and reflect a rich diversity of styles and themes. From Daniel Boulanger's exploration of revenge and the desire for recognition in "The Hunter's Cafe," to Alain Gerber's brief and poetic "You Never Die," these stories make excellent reading in any language.

Synopsis:

A new version of the "Parallel Texts" series, containing 12 pieces of contemporary fiction in the original French and in English translation. With notes on unusual words and phrases, this is a useful component of language studies that also provides insight into French culture and literature.
