Extrait: ...la connoissance, luy fut d'un grand secours. Une fois qu'il y estoit, du Bois1, qu'on appelloit vulgairement le fastidieux M. du Bois, s'avisa, tandis que tout le monde s'estoit leve pour recevoir un evesque, et qu'on faisoit des reverences, d'arranger les sieges derriere chascun; il oublia Sarrazin, qui, croyant trouver son siege ou il l'avoit laisse, voulut s'asseoir, et donna du cu a terre. Quand il fut releve, on luy demanda quelle pensee il avoit eue en ce moment-la; il prit un ton serieux, et dit: J'ay songe si j'estois un homme a qui on deust faire un tour comme celuy-la. Le Coadjuteur fut oblige de rechercher d'ou cela venoit, et de luy dire qu'il en estoit bien jjasche. Pour moy, cela me fait croire que Sarrazin n'avoit pas toute la presence d'esprit imaginable, car il falloit faire accroire que c'estoit sa faute, qu'il estoit bien maladroit, etc. Il fut pres de quatre ans comme le courtisan du Coadjuteur, jusques a aller a Bourbon avec luy (a).

Sarrazin, quoyque grand et bien fait de sa personne, estoit pourtant ce jour-la terriblement fagotte en autheur, et tous les autres en prestres de village; cela sentoit la pedanterie a cent pas a la ronde A la guerre de Paris, le Goadjuteur fit tant par le moyen de Madame de Longueville, que le Prince de Conty prit Sarrazin pour secretaire. La necessite ou l'humeur normande, ou peutestre toutes les deux ensemble, firent que Sarrazin, quoyqu'il eust...
Three Strong Women
Three women who almost had it all... Norah thinks she has made it when she qualifies as a lawyer in Paris; Fanta works her way into a prestigious teaching job in her home city; Khady runs a cafe with her loving husband - now all she wants is a child. But family ties, broken or reasserted, will force each woman to face a journey from France to Africa or from Africa to France that will take the future out of their hands and change their lives forever. Domineering fathers, weak lovers, the perilous road of the refugee - they will need all their courage and inner strength if they are to overcome. From Man Booker International Prize finalist, Marie NDiaye.
The Reveries of the Solitary Walker
First published posthumously in 1782 from an unfinished manuscript, The Reveries of the Solitary Walker continues Rousseau's exploration of the soul in the form of a final meditation on self-understanding and isolation. This accurate and graceful translation by Charles Butterworth--the only English version based on Rousseau's original text--is accompanied by an interpretive essay, extensive notes, and a comprehensive index.
One evening some friends were gathered at the home of one of our most celebrated writers. Having dined sumptuously, they were discussing murder—apropos of what, I no longer remember probably apropos of nothing. Only men were present: moralists, poets, philosophers and doctors—thus everyone could speak freely, according to his whim, his hobby or his idiosyncrasies, without fear of suddenly seeing that expression of horror and fear which the least startling idea traces upon the horrified face of a notary. I—say notary, much as I might have said lawyer or porter, not disdainfully, of course, but in order to define the average French mind. With a calmness of spirit as perfect as though he were expressing an opinion upon the merits of the cigar he was smoking, a member of the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences said: “Really—I honestly believe that murder is the greatest human preoccupation, and that all our acts stem from it... “ We awaited the pronouncement of an involved theory, but he remained silent. “Absolutely!” said a Darwinian scientist, “and, my friend, you are voicing one of those eternal truths such as the legendary Monsieur de La Palisse discovered every day: since murder is the very bedrock of our social institutions, and consequently the most imperious necessity of civilized life. If it no longer existed, there would be no governments of any kind, by virtue of the admirable fact that crime in general and murder in particular are not only their excuse, but their only reason for being. We should then live in complete anarchy, which is inconceivable. So, instead of seeking to eliminate murder, it is imperative that it be cultivated with intelligence and perseverance. I know no better culture medium than law.” Someone protested. “Here, here!” asked the savant, “aren't we alone, and speaking frankly?” “Please!” said the host, “let us profit thoroughly by the only occasion when we are free to express our personal ideas, for both I, in my books, and you in your turn, may present only lies to the public.” The scientist settled himself once more among the cushions of his armchair, stretched his legs, which were numb from being crossed too long and, his head thrown back, his arms hanging and his stomach soothed by good digestion, puffed smoke−rings at the ceiling: “Besides,” he continued, “murder is largely self−propagating. Actually, it is not the result of this or that passion, nor is it a pathological form of degeneracy. It is a vital instinct which is in us all—which is in all organized beings and dominates them, just as the genetic instinct. And most of the time it is especially true that these two instincts fuse so well, and are so totally interchangeable, that in some way or other they form a single and identical instinct, so that we no longer may tell which of the two urges us to give life, and which to take it—which is murder, and which love. I have been the confidant of an honorable assassin who killed women, not to rob them, but to ravish them. His trick was to manage things so that his sexual climax coincided exactly with the death−spasm of the woman: 'At those moments,' he told me, 'I imagined I was a God, creating a world!”
