Goodis, la vie en noir et blanc : biographie by Philippe Garnier( Book )
8 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
David Goodis (1917-1967) est considéré comme un poète maudit du roman noir. Ses héros, coincés entre un passé obsédant et une déchéance inexorable, traversent tous la même vie sans espoir au fil de ses romans : "Epaves", "La lune dans le caniveau"... Ni véritable biographie, ni livre sur le polar, ce livre offre d'autres images du personnage qui sombra dans l'alcoolisme

Retours et répétitions dans l'Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane d'Alain-René Lesage by Philippe Garnier( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Il est curieux de constater qu' après plus de deux siècle de popularité, l' Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane a perdu bon nombre de lecteur ces dernières années. D' où vient se désintérêt pour ce roman qui fut l' un des plus gros succès de librairies aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècle ? Roman aux sources multiples, il est pourtant un texte foisonnant. Plus de 280 personnages nommés et 14 récits enchâssés : l' œuvre de Lesage, fortement structurée toutefois, est gouvernée par un principe de retours et de répétitions. Les aventures du héros narrateur sont ponctuées par les retours de personnages, de récits intercalaires, de motifs littéraires traditionnels et de références à la mythologie antique ou à la Bible

Dreams from Bunker Hill by John Fante( Book )
6 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
My first collision with fame was hardly memorable. I was a busboy at Marx's Deli. The year was 1934. The place was Third and Hill, Los Angeles. I was twenty-one years old, living in a world bounded on the west by Bunker Hill, on the east by Los Angeles Street, on the south by Pershing Square, and on the north by Civic Center. I was a busboy nonpareil, with great verve and style for the profession, and though I was dreadfully underpaid (one dollar a day plus meals) I attracted considerable attention as I whirled from table to table, balancing a tray on one hand, and eliciting smiles from my customers. I had something else beside a waiter's skill to offer my patrons, for I was also a writer

Post office : a novel by Charles Bukowski( Book )
5 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Depuis 1977, le phénomène Bukowski a gagné les pays francophones. Une vraie épidémie. Dans le présent roman, le premier de l'auteur, le héros est un drôle de loustic, postier de son état, champion de l'absentéisme, turfiste, chômeur, une femme ou une bouteille toujours à portée de la main. Une image très réaliste (et même un peu forcée) d'une certaine catégorie d'Américains mi-marginaux, mi-prolétaires. En plus d'être un romancier au style haut en couleurs et plus qu'argotique, Bukowski est, selon Sartre et Genet, "le meilleur poète d'Amérique". Il va de soi que le succès de cet auteur ne repose pas seulement sur son goût du scandale
