Gradually, through Leve s casually obsessive, pointillist, beautiful ruminations, we come to know a stoic, sensible, thoughtful man who bears more than a slight psychological resemblance to Leve himself.

BTBA Best Translated Book Award Nominee for Fiction Longlist (2012).

Here are a diverse dozen to try, in several different genres. This format keeps more of the literary continuity intact, while still providing steady assistance with difficult words. If you’re fairly confident in your French comprehension, but still feel like you need to double-check yourself, a page-by-page translation can give you the perfect balance. Want to switch back and forth between French and English on the fly?

Suicide cannot be read as simply another novel it is, in a sense, the author 's own oblique, public suicide note, a unique meditation on this most extreme of refusals.

Gradually, through Lev 's casually obsessive, pointillist, beautiful ruminations, we come to know a stoic, sensible, thoughtful man who bears more than a slight psychological resemblance to Lev himself.
