One of Simenon's critically acclaimed roman durs, The Blue Room is a tale of the destructive power of lust and guilt. "He felt no resentment towards Andree for biting his lip. In the context of their lovemaking, it had its place." For Tony and Andree, there are no rules when they meet in the blue room at the Hotel des Voyageurs. Their adulterous affair is intoxicating, passionate--and dangerous. Soon it turns into a nightmare from which there can be no escape. Simenon's stylish and sensual psychological thriller weaves a story of cruelty, reckless lust, and relentless guilt. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A novel about a mother-daughter relationship that will send a chill down your spine. Johanne is a young woman in her twenties who lives with her mother. When she falls in love with Ivar, she finally feels ready to leave home. The couple plan a trip to America. But the morning of her departure, Johanne wakes up to find the door locked. Can she overcome her fears? Will she shout for help? Will she climb out of her fourth floor window? Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘Everyone who has read Fifty Shades of Grey should read this book. Why? The Blue Room holds up a mirror to a part of the female psyche that yearns for submission. The story shows how erotic fantasies are formed by the relationship with our parents. It then delves further to analyse the struggle of women to separate from their mothers - a struggle that is rarely addressed in either literature or society.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘A masterpiece of unreliable narration.’ Nicholas Lezard, Guardian ‘A highly unusual, coolly daring psychological thriller that explores emotional pain and indifference with an unsettling detachment.’ Eileen Battersby, Irish Times ‘A work of chilling, masterly control.’ Laura Profumo, Times Literary Supplement ‘Nothing is certain, no motive is clear and no person is above suspicion in Ørstavik’s perfectly pitched, tightly stitched and captivating brain-teaser.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post ‘Ørstavik treats the everyday and existential with intensity.’ Max Liu, Independent ‘Psychologically astute and deftly translated . . . A brilliant examination of a woman struggling to own her sexuality, to break free from the guilt and forge her own identity.’ Lucy Popescu, Tablet GUARDIAN PAPERBACKS OF THE YEAR 2014

Arthur Schnitzler described Reigen, his loose series of sexual sketches, as "completely unprintable," and indeed its premiere in 1921 spurred an obscenity suit. It was only when Max Ophüls made his famous film in 1950 that the work became better known as La Ronde. Now David Hare has reset these circular scenes of love and betrayal in the present day, with a cast of two actors playing a succession of characters whose sexual lives enmesh like a daisy chain. The Blue Room is a brilliant meditation on men and women, sex and social class, actors and the theater. With deft insight about the gap between the sexes, The Blue Room takes the treacherous Freudian subject of projection and desire and reinvents it in a bittersweet landscape that is both eternal and completely up-to-date.

The Blue Room, Eugene Richards's first book in colour, is a moving and eloquent study of the abandoned and forgotten houses of rural America. Abandoned houses stand mute and solitary in out-of-the-way places wherever, it's been said, things haven't worked out for people. To those quickly passing by, the timeworn structures can be seen as fearful places, places to avoid. Yet there are those who are inexorably drawn to them. To Eugene Richards, they are heirlooms, evidence of past lives, time machines. Over the course of three and a half years, travelling thousands of miles on the backroads of America, Richards has created a body of photographs that speaks of the beauty of these houses and inspires us to imagine the lives of the people who once lived in them. The Blue Room is a personal journey, a way of seeing, and a meditation on the fragility of life and the transient nature of things.

Extrait de la couverture : "This innovative book pioneers a new way of understanding and treating traumatised people. A literary as well as scientific achievement, it draws on interviews with refugee women from Middle East and Latin America to create a highly original narrative. This is structured around a metaphor of rooms and borders that represent the women's life experiences, from girlhood to womanhood, and their traumas of imprisonment, torture and, often, rape. Inger Agger explores, in particular, the sexual abuse of women, seeking to understand how it is related to the surrounding gender and political power structures. Drawing upon ethnography, anthropology and cultural history, her book provides an interdisciplinary model for the therapeutic understanding and treatment of women not only traumatised by political violence, but sexual trauma in general."
