I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere

Производитель: "Vintage"

Following the publication of Anna Gavalda`s international bestseller,`Hunting and Gathering`, this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda`s witty and dazzling collection of stories,`I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere`, together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella,`Someone I Loved`- both published in the UK for the first time.`I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere`explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother`s plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness.`Someone I Loved`is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequences that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance,`Someone I Loved`ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment.

Anna Gavalda

Anna Gavalda (born December 9, 1970 in Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine) is a French teacher and award-winning novelist.

Referred to by "Voici" magazine as "a distant descendant of Dorothy Parker", Anna Gavalda was born in an upper-class suburb of Paris. While working as French teacher in high school, a collection of her short stories was first published in 1999 under the title "Je voudrais que quelqu'un m'attende quelque part" that met with both critical acclaim and commercial success, selling more than three-quarters of a million copies in her native France and winning the 2000 "Grand Prix RTL-Lire." The book was translated into numerous languages including in English and sold in twenty-seven countries. It was published to acclaim in North America in 2003 as "I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere"." The book received much praise and is a library and school selection worldwide in several languages.

Gavalda's first novel, "Je l'aimais" ("Someone I Loved") was published in France in February 2002 and later that year in English. Inspired by the failure of her own marriage, it too was a major literary success and a bestseller and was followed by the short (96 pages) juvenile novel "35 kilos d'espoir" ("95 Pounds of Hope") that she said she wrote "to pay tribute to those of my students who were dunces in school but otherwise fantastic people".

In 2004, her third novel, "Ensemble c'est tout"," focused on the lives of four people living in an apartment house: a struggling young artist who works as an office cleaner at night, a young aristocrat misfit, a cook, and an elderly grandmother. The 600-page book is a bestseller in France and has been translated into English as "Hunting and Gathering".

As of 2007, her three books have sold more than 3 million copies in France [ [http://www.lefigaro.fr/livres/2008/02/27/03005-20080227ARTFIG00383-une-plume-qui-vaut-de-l-or-.php Le Figaro - Livres : Une plume qui vaut de l'or ] ] . "Ensemble c'est tout" was made into a successful movie in 2007 by Claude Berri, with Audrey Tautou and Guillaume Canet. The adaptation of her first novel, "Je l'aimais", is currently being filmed.

Divorced, and the mother of two, Gavalda lives in the small city of Melun, Seine-et-Marne, about 50 km southeast of Paris. In addition to writing novels, she also contributes to "Elle" magazine.
