A sort of life by Graham Greene( Book )

6 editions published between 1971 and 1975 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing A Sort of Life ... was in the nature of a psychoanalysis. I made a long journey through time, and I was one of my characters." Known for his espionage thrillers set in exotic locales, Graham Greene is the writer who launched a thousand travel journalists. But although Greene produced some unabashedly commercial works -- he called them "entertainments," to distinguish them from his novels -- even his escapist fiction is rooted in the gritty realities he encountered around the globe

Beard's Roman women : a novel by Anthony Burgess( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 1982 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman-divertissement, loufoque et voltairien, qui entraîne son lecteur à toute allure. Parmi les nombreux sujets abordés, Françoise Wagener énumère "l'Amérique et son culte imbécile de la motivation", Rome et sa vulgarité épanouie, "les hommes, les femmes, les écrivains, l'alcoolisme, le couple, la fièvre amoureuse, la mort imminente, etc.". Le héros est un écrivain de scénarios, un Anglais, "vendu" au "show biz" américain. Un roman gai et corsé
La Papesse Jeanne : récit by Agriniōtēs( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1994 in French and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dernières nouvelles du monde : roman by Anthony Burgess( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1989 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le lien entre les trois thèmes narratifs de ce roman hybride est constitué par le seul jugement porté par l'auteur sur l'histoire de l'humanité (au 20e siècle). Ces trois thèmes sont: divers aspects de la vie de Freud et de celle de Trotsky, l'apocalypse cosmique (telle que prévue par un poète devenu romancier). Burgess "energetic prophet and ##farceur##" (Eric Korn, ##The Times litterary supplement##) a publié un autre de ces livres qui dérangent. La critique a été séduite, mais considère en général que ce n'est pas le meilleur livre de l'auteur
Earthly powers by Anthony Burgess( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Burgess's ambitious study of 20th-century history centers on the stormy relationship between an effete, popular novelist and a Faustian priest."
1984-85 : roman by Anthony Burgess( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié en langue anglaise à la fin de 1978, ce "roman" se présente en deux parties distinctes. La première moitié consiste en neuf essais critiques d'inégale longueur sur la situation actuelle en Angleterre, par rapport à ce qu'elle était en 1948, au moment où Orwell écrivit son fameux roman. C'est la meilleure partie du livre, incisive, vivace et réflexive. Quant à la seconde moitié (p. 131-293), c'est une dystopie ou une cacotopie à court terme où la "conversation piece" l'emporte sur la description romanesque. Syndicalisme intégral, grêves continuelles, influence économique arabe sont plutôt l'objet de longues discussions de la part de Jones, le porte-parole de l'auteur, que d'une réelle dramatisation. Somme toute, assez décevant, cet ensemble vaut par le sujet et touchera surtout les futurologues et ceux qui ont lu le ##1984## d'Orwell
Down all the days by Christy Brown( Book )

2 editions published between 1971 and 1976 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman
The wanting seed by Anthony Burgess( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the near future, The Wanting Seed is a Malthusian comedy about the strange world overpopulation will produce. Tristram Foxe and his wife, Beatrice-Joanna, live in their skyscraper world where official family limitation glorifies homosexuality. Eventually, their world is transformed into a chaos of cannibalistic dining-clubs, fantastic fertility rituals, and wars without anger. It is a novel both extravagantly funny and grimly serious."

Du miel pour les ours : roman by Anthony Burgess( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition originale, 1963. L'auteur décrit un couple anglo-saxon qui tombe en miettes à l'occasion d'un voyage de tourisme et d'affaires en URSS. Un roman parodique et drôle qui allie verve et amertume. Une oeuvre à classer quelque part entre la "comédie conjugale à l'américaine" et la satire politique, avec un rien de policier et même deux doigts d'espionnage pour faire bonne mesure. La morale de l'histoire est claire: capitalistes et communistes sont renvoyés dos à dos... (c'était en 1963, avant les événements d'Afghanistan et ceux du Salvador...)
