Christelle | 1124 comments Hi guys,

Is it possible to add an alternate cover edition for this book (ISBN 9782070350247)?

You can find the actual book cover here on Amazon or here on the publisher website.

Also, there are a few things missing for the book.

The publisher is Gallimard (not Gallimard Education). The collection is Folio.

The publication date is the 10th of January 2008 (not the 1st of that month).

It has 375 pages (not counting the page with the books of the author and the blank pages).

The language is French.

The description should be:

---

Pour Henry Perowne – neurochirurgien réputé, mari heureux, père comblé d'un musicien de blues et d'une poétesse – ce devait être un samedi comme les autres. Pas question d'aller défiler contre la guerre en Irak. Plutôt goûter les plaisirs de la vie. Et pourtant… Un banal accrochage, et voilà la violence qui surgit dans son existence protégée. Henry aura beau tenter de reprendre le fil de sa journée, ses vieux démons et le chaos du monde le rattraperont sans cesse durant ces vingt-quatre heures, au terme desquelles plus rien ne sera jamais comme avant.
Tout en faisant diaboliquement monter le suspense, McEwan entrelace événements planétaires et privés avec une telle virtuosité que cet étrange samedi devient la métaphore de toute une vie, de toutes nos vies fragiles d'Occidentaux pris dans la tourmente de ce début de siècle. Et cette réflexion profonde sur le hasard et le destin, les pouvoirs respectifs de la science et de l'art, la quête d'un sens qui résisterait à la mort, nous montre une fois de plus, après Expiation, un romancier parvenu à la plénitude de son talent.

---

It should be combined with this book Samedi, ASIN B005PLWPPC. (For the Kindle version, the title should only be "Samedi" and the collection is also Folio.)

Thanks for your help!

Christelle | 1124 comments Super! Thank you :)
My only question (as for the other books) is regarding the publication date: why is it 2018?


message 4: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments There are two publication dates--the original publication date, which is the date the first edition of the book was released, and the edition-specific publication date. 2018 was my best estimate for when these new cover editions were released. If you have a more specific date for when the new cover was released, I can add it instead.

Christelle | 1124 comments Thank you for your explanation. The only thing I know for sure is that this cover exists at least since 2017.
