Translating Mind Matters in Twenty First Century French Women's Writing by Claire Ellender Summary

Attitudes towards, and strategies for treating, those who suffer from abnormal mental states have evolved considerably over the centuries, and these are reflected in the various literary genres of all eras. In its introduction, this book provides a concise, yet thorough, overview of this phenomenon, citing key examples taken from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. Each of the eight chapters which constitute Part One of this study then focuses on representations of a particular mental health issue in a work of literature produced by a twenty-first-century French woman writer. Considering the causes and symptoms of the given condition, it situates the representation of its treatment in relation to current attitudes and practices in the West. Inspired by the concept that reading literature which concentrates on mental health problems can be both informative and of comfort to those affected by such issues, Part Two provides detailed textual analyses, and discusses the English-language versions, of four works examined in Part One which already exist in translation. Suggesting how these may be of benefit to an Anglophone readership, it recommends that the four remaining texts, which may be equally helpful, are suitable for translation into English.

French Leave by Anna Gavalda Summary

In French Leave four siblings are reunited one afternoon after skipping out on a dull family wedding. They leave behind needy spouses, annoying relatives, and the dull demands of encroaching adulthood for one final, riotous and joyous adventure in each other's company. Garance, her sister Lola, brother Simon and his overbearing wife are driving through the French countryside on their way to a family wedding in Podunk-on-Indre. Once they arrive and discover the real occasion to celebrate is the fact that they are together again, the three siblings realize what they really want to do is visit their youngest brother Vincent, who is working as a tour guide at a château in the heart of the enchanting province of Touraine. The siblings jump back in their car and race away, then talk Vincent into playing hooky in order to all hang out like they used to. For the remainder of that afternoon, over drinks and delicious food at a campsite where Vincent lives, the four siblings lose themselves in the laughter of inside jokes, teasing and memories that unite them. As simply and as spontaneously as the adventure began, it ends with each returning back to their respective lives, but with a new welcoming of the years ahead. Getting its title from the phrase meaning to take one's leave suddenly, with no warning and without permission, French Leave is full of feeling and a wonderful treat of a novel that captures a final moment of youth between a group of brothers and sisters before life truly gets in the way.

Fall in love with the addictive, suspenseful love story between a teenage girl and a vampire with the book that sparked a "literary phenomenon" and redefined romance for a generation (New York Times). Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite. It's here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with the highly anticipated companion, Midnight Sun: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire's point of view.

Thrilling Cities by Ian Fleming Summary

‘On November 2nd armed with a sheaf of visas...one suitcase...and my typewriter, I left humdrum London for the thrilling cities of the world...’ In 1959, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, was commissioned by the Sunday Times to explore fourteen of the world’s most exotic cities. Fleming saw it all with a thriller writer’s eye. From Hong Kong to Honolulu, New York to Naples, he left the bright main streets for the back alleys, abandoning tourist sites in favour of underground haunts, and mingling with celebrities, gangsters and geishas. The result is a series of vivid snapshots of a mysterious, vanished world.

Life Only Better by Anna Gavalda Summary

Mathilde is twenty-four. She has abandoned her studies in art history in lieu of a menial job and lives in a house she shares with twin sisters. One day she forgets her bag in a café and a week later an unknown man returns it to her. Following this encounter, Mathilde decides to throw caution to the wind and change her life entirely. Yann is twenty-six, a university graduate, unemployed. There may be better days ahead. Perhaps. While waiting for them, he works as a sales assistant in a home appliances store. He wouldn’t say he is unhappy. But sometimes when he is crossing a bridge over the Seine River at night, he imagines jumping. One day he does a favor for one of his neighbors and is asked to stay for dinner as thanks. The following morning Yann throws caution to the wind and decides to change his life entirely. These two novellas by best-selling author Anna Gavalda are among her most moving and inspiring. Love in this book is a fragile emotion, easily ruined and eternally subject to the choices one makes in life.

Life, Only Better is a touching, cleverly crafted book about choices and their consequences.
