Burning water : a novel by George Bowering( Book )

26 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entre l'écrivain canadien-anglais George Bowering et George Vancouver, le navigateur britannique qui a donné son nom à la ville que l'on sait, se sont tissés les liens d'une longue complicité que ce roman de 1980, après un vaste poème et une pièce radiophonique, vient parachever. Le sous-titre du récit est explicite: on y retrouve, avec en un contrepoint discret le portrait de l'écrivain au travail, à Trieste et en d'autres lieux, le détail de cet interminable périple le long des côtes de l'Amérique qui, de 1791 à 1795, occupa l'explorateur. Une narration vive, des personnages bien saisis font de cet ouvrage une lecture agréable, encore qu'il soit exagéré d'écrire, comme le fait Stéphane Lépine, qu'il renouvelle le genre du récit d'aventures.
