2 MICHENER, James A. FABIEN, Christiane, trans. Caravanes. First French Edition in dustjacket
Presses de la Cite, Paris, 1964, 
MICHENER, James A. Caravanes. Paris : Presses de la Cite, (1964). First French Edition. Pp (8),[9]-314,(4). Endpaper Maps. 8vo, pale yellow cloth, black lettering to spine, red camel vignette to spine and front board. Traduitde l'américain par Christiane Fabien. "Ellen Jaspar, née à Dorset, Pennsyl vanie, récemment mariée à un ingénieur afghan, n'a pas donné de ses nouvelles depuis treize mois. La mission de la retrouver échoit à un jeune membre du personnel de l'ambassade américaine de Kaboul (Afghanistan), Mark Miller, qui nous conte cette extraordinaire aventure, laquelle se situe en mars 1946. Sa mission, qui requiert sensibilité, tact et patience, ne semble pas au débùt-passionnante. Mais bientôt des recherches qu'il entreprend l'entraînent dans des aventures inattendues et périlleuses et le conduisent jusqu'aux lieux les plus sauvages et les plus reculés de l'ancien royaume. Et, avec lui, le lecteur se prend de passion pour la jeune disparue, pour le passé et le present d'un fabuteux pays, pour Miller lui-même et pour Mira, la jolie nomade qui l'initie en tant de points. L'Afghanistan, où les temps anciens et modernes coexistent, forme un cadre particulièrement approprié au drame campé par James A. Michener. En 1946, alors que par maints cotés ce pays différait assez peu d'apparence de ce qu'il était à l'époque d'Alexandrele Grand, en lui bouillonnaient ces forces qui allaient le projeter en ple in XXe siècle... Caravanes, au plus haut point, réussit cette ingénieuse association propre à James A. Michener : une intrigue passionnante ayant pourtoile de fond un pays qui la pare d'une auréole historique et locale vérid ique." (from the dj). "The story is set in Afghanistan immediately following World War II. The protagonist, Mark Miller, is stationed in Kabul at the American embassy and is given the assignment of an investigation to find a young woman, Ellen Jasper, also from the United States, who has disappearedafter her marriage to an Afghan national thirteen months previously. Durin g his journey through Afghanistan, Miller comes to a deeper understanding of the complexities and nuances of contemporary Afghan life. His travels also reveal the similarities of human nature across cultural and social boundaries." (Wikipedia). James Albert Michener (February 3, 1907 – October 16, 1997) was an American author of more than 40 books, most of which were fictional, lengthy family sagas covering the lives of many generations in particular geographic locales and incorporating solid history. Text in French. Very good in nicked dustjacket. 25.00
