5 Must-Read Works of French Literature

Dominique Fabre lists five books he can’t stop revisiting

It’s not easy to choose only five books, so I made up my mind and decided to mention the five I can’t help reading again, once in a while, because they are still here for me today. Every time I read them I find something I hadn’t discovered before—or maybe I had forgotten—so that the book is always the same, and yet always different, as well. Only literature can do that for me.

  • Death on the Installment Plan, Louis-Ferdinand Céline
  • The Ravishing of Lol Stein, Marguerite Duras
  • My Friends, Emmanuel Bove
  • A Hard Winter, Raymond Queneau
  • A Man’s Place, Annie Ernaux
