- Laurent Mauvignier - Histoires de la nuit
Maryse Condé - L'Évangile du nouveau monde
Gauz - Debout-paye
The Stockholm library has all three of them. I borrowed the first two and put a hold on the third one.
I guess I won't read Mauvignier's book. While the premise sounds quite good, it's a chunker of 600+ pages and the first sentence ends half-way down the second page . I don't think that my French is up to that, and as the library doesn't have any (for me) readable translation and I don't want to buy one, parallel reading is not an option.
Condé's book is much shorter (280 pages), and there is a Swedish translation, so I'll give it a try as soon as I've finished Dumas' Monte-Cristo. I've read several of Condé's books in translation and liked them, so I guess I'll like even this one.
