L'automne du patriarche by Gabriel García Márquez ( Book )
19 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in French and held by 156 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
