Works

Destins Croisés/Intertwined Destinies - Montigny sur Loing et les Americains, the first bilingual publication of the historical society ASME, traces the cultural and artistic links between France, Canada and the US from the early 1800s to the present. Impressionist painters, sculptors, cinema stars and directors, musicians, and military men and women created a shared world just outside Fontainebleau. Research and English version by Constance Lindgreen.

Blue Fountain: Short stories by the Crossroads Writers Club of Fontainebleau

Korongo Books is proud to announce the publication of Blue Fountain, a collection of short stories by the multinational members of the Crossroads Writers Club of Fontainebleau, France. Drawn together by a love of stories, poetry, and memoirs, this is their debut publication.

 

Stories: Equilibrium, and Nine Minutes in the Metro, capture moments in France. Novella: The Thirteen-Hour Man finds a Japanese salaryman at a turning-point 
- "I particularly liked Nine Minutes in the Metro, especially the passage about adolescence when everything seems possible but is at the same time beyond control. I found Equilibrium very subtle and thought-provoking. And very contemporary."

- "I liked your story, The Thirteen Hour Man, very much. I'm Japanese and I don't know how you managed to understand us and write about us so well. Yoshi is a remarkable man."

- "Equilibrium made its point almost subtly, but the more I thought about it, the bigger the hammer became. Really well done.The tension in Nine MInutes in the Metro was equally subtle, really drew me in, and with a great ending.

The Thirteen-Hour Man was my favorite. You did an incredible job not "telling," but "showing" us who Yoshi was. He's got superpowers he doesn't know he has. I also loved how many years the story covered so effortlessly, I don't feel like I missed a minute of his life even though I'd just been given tiny slivers of it. I'd know him if I passed him on the street."
