    Marguerite Yourcenar

    Do you know this author?

She was an ideal choice--and a much more suitable candidate than the more sensual Colette or...

    *The book of happiness * by Nina Berberova, you get every type of love there is there, love for parents, friends, husbands and lovers... try it, it's great. And for a non-Hollywood scenario try Marguerite Yourcenar's *Coup de Grace*... it's really interesting.... it is really worth it!

    Contemporary Non-Anglo Authors

    I don't think anglo or non anglo reffers to being black or white, it reffers to authors that write in english in comparrison to authors that write in another language, thus being less accessible to an english speaking public.

    Contemporary Non-Anglo Authors

    Actually, he moved to England when he was 6 and his parents gave him a japanese education in hope of their return to their home country. If you ever read his book,"AN ARTIST OF THE FLOATING WORLD" you will see that although he may have the influences of both worlds he could never really be...

    Candy-Preference Personalilty Diagnosis, from "Psychology according to Novella"

    Control Freak The profound stickiness and chewiness of Goldberg’s Peanut Chews (may include the entire toffee family) satisfy the aggressive tendencies of the Control Freak (CF), and indeed may fuel the CF’s propensity to boss others around. Hmmm... Never thought at myself as a control...

    La fille sur le pont (The girl on the bridge)

    He played a wide range of characters from drama "La veuve de Saint-Pierre", adventure "Le Bossu" and comedy "Apres-Vous". And i loved him in "Sade" as well, i think it's one of the parts that fit him the best.

    La fille sur le pont (The girl on the bridge)

    Has anyone seen this movie? I did and liked it very much, so much that it made it to the top of my favourite movies list. The main characters are played by Vanessa Paradis ( she is such a talented actress, such a shame that she gave up on it) and by my favourite french actor, Daniel Auteuil(ok...

    Almost transparent blue

    Here are some appreciations i found on the book and its author: Drugs and sex and drugs and sex and drugs and sex. Throw in music, booze and puke, a little William S. Burroughs and A Clockwork Orange, set the blender on high, pour into a tall glass and drink in Japanese writer Ryu Murakami's...

    Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

    First of all, so nice to find a fellow japanese literature lover:D I do know some things reguarding Mishima's byography but didn't know there was a book on it, however i've been wanting to buy a collection of articles written on Mishima by french author Marguerite Yourcenar, and seeing that...
