The autumn of the patriarch by Gabriel García Márquez( Book )

24 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in French and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depuis trente ans, plusieurs grands romans latino-américains nous ont décrit par le menu, le monde hallucinant de la dictature à l'américaine : délation, exactions de tous ordres, assassinats, exterminations même, bestialité, cupidité, abus sexuels, protections étrangères, soif maladive de pouvoir que finalement la solitude transforme en frustration. Cette réalité tragique, nous la retrouvons tout au long de ce roman, mais sous la plume de Garcia Marquez elle prend une dimension burlesque incomparable. Le patriarche est ici un dictateur dans la grande tradition de l'Amérique Latine. C'est un vieux général qui a " entre 107 et 232 ans ". Tyran méfiant et délirant, les structures minables de son pays arriéré le vouent à des aventures cauchemardesques que l'imagination non moins délirante de Gabriel Garcia Marquez transforme en folles équipées drolatiques. Cocasserie, jaillissement incessant de trouvailles, ruissellements de mots qui brillent comme d'insolites pierres précieuses : on retrouve dans l'Automne du patriarche toute la magie de Cent ans de solitude

Deux frères éméchés vengent "l'honneur" de leur soeur en étripant le présumé coupable, Santiago Nasar, Arabe d'origine, bien intégré à la population de son île des Caraïbes. Horreur, drôlerie, réalisme et poésie. Les personnages sont tirés à la limite de la caricature. Un roman aussi séduisant que déroutant et dont le sujet principal est la violence

The mirror of Lida Sal : tales based on Mayan myths and Guatemalan legends by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )

10 editions published between 1967 and 1987 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First English-language edition of El espejo de Lida Sal (see HLAS 30:3268), in which the Nobel laureate melds Mayan and Guatemalan myth and folklore in 10 stories whose hallucinatory prose challenges the reader. 'Everything unfolds in a land of natural dreamscapes ... The imagination reels.' Although lacking a table of contents and translator's note, the superb translation recommends the work for classroom use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
