Read full description of the books:



"D'un homme à la mémoire lacunaire, longtemps plombée de mensonges puis gauchie par le temps, hantée d'incertitudes, et un jour soudainement portée à incandescence, quelle histoire peut-on écrire ?"

Franz-Georg, le héros de "Magnus", est né avant guerre en Allemagne. De son enfance, "il ne lui reste aucun souvenir, sa mémoire est aussi vide qu'au jour de sa naissance". Il lui faut tout réapprendre, ou plutôt désaprendre ce passé qu'on lui a inventé et dont le seul témoin est un ours en peluche à l'oreille roussie : Magnus.
Dense, troublante, cette quête d'identité a la beauté du conte et porte le poids implacable de l'Histoire.

Read information about the author

Ebook Magnus read Online! Germain received a doctorate in philosophy from the Sorbonne, and taught it at the French School in Prague from 1987 to 1993.
She claimed that philosophy, 'a continuous wonder' to her, was also too 'analytical', and she switched from Descartes and Heidegger to Kafka and Dostoevsky.
She grew up in rural France, in an area steeped in mythology and folklore, and she admitted 'that the power of place had a huge effect on me but it was an unconscious one'. That her prose was 'related to the earth ... the soil, the peasants, the trees', was revealed in her first novel, The Book of Nights (1985), which won six literary awards.
The second novel, Night of Amber (1987) continued from the first, and was followed by Days of Anger (1989). Despite this three-part structure, Germain claimed that she was 'trying only to express an obsessive image and to explain it to myself. I have no pretensions to creating a mythos. Each book begins with an image or a dream and I try to express that and give it coherence.'
