9780140023855: French Short Stories 1 / Nouvelles Francaises 1: Parallel Text (Penguin Parallel Text) (French and English Edition)

Originally written to entertain, move or chill, the eight short stories in this collection accompanied by parallel English translations now also help students gain deeper insights into French literature and life. Arranged in approximate order of difficulty, the range of stories is wide, from the stylized wit of Raymond Queneau to the beautifully written ambiguities of Philippe Sollers, from Pierre Gascar’s exploration of childhood as a background to a tale of infidelity to Henri Thomas’s gentle, ironic look at war. All make wonderful reads in either language.

From the Back Cover:

This volume is intended primarily to help English-speaking students of French, but the stories also stand on their own and make excellent reading in either language.

About the Author:

The Marvel and Other Short Stories is a collected anthology of six short stories written by the winners of the Austin Macauley World Book Day short story competition.

Raleigh Trevelyan, a direct descendant of Sir Walter Raleigh, was for many years a distinguished publisher; his previous books include T"he Fortress" and "Rome 44". For two decades he combed the British, Spanish, Italian, and his own family s archives to write the authoritative life story of Sir Walter Raleigh, first published in 2002. He lives in London and Cornwall.
