Albert Camus : a biography by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in French and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition originale (pour la traduction française), Ed. du Seuil, 1978. On assiste à une réhabilitation assez générale de ce philosophe et écrivain, un temps en butte à l'ironie condescendante de certains intellectuels progressistes français (Sartre, etc.). Ayant constaté qu'il n'existait pas encore de biographie consacrée à Camus, le journaliste américain H.R. Lottman a décidé de mettre un terme à ce scandale. Fidèle à la grande tradition biographique anglo-américaine, il suit Camus presque au jour le jour. Son approche est modeste, probe, exempte de tous les préjugés encore courants en Europe. Plus qu'à partir des textes, son information a été rassemblée auprès de tous ceux qui ont connu ce lauréat du prix Nobel qui aurait voulu "à la fois être vrai et utile". Pas d'index. Un monument pour lequel l'auteur prévoit déjà une édition révisée

The Left Bank : writers, artists, and politics from the Popular Front to the Cold War by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur décrit son ouvrage comme une histoire politique plutôt que littéraire. Il précise qu'il traite en priorité d'histoire culturelle et décrit les guerres politico-littéraires parisiennes (de la Rive gauche) entre 1930 et 1950. L'influence de cette "Rive gauche" dépassait très largement les frontières de la France. Les écrivains "engagés" de gauche font l'objet d'une attention beaucoup plus soutenue que les écrivains catholiques (Mounier, Fumet, etc.). Parmi les écrivains de droite, Lottman se limite pratiquement à ceux qui basculeront, en 1940, dans la collaboration. Si, comme le souligne Christian Jelen, Lottman ne s'attarde pas sur les idéologies qui sous-tendent les engagements politiques (communisme/fascisme) qu'il décrit, il prouve - grâce aux techniques anglo-saxonnes d'enquête - que "les périodes d'engagement politique les plus intenses ont été les plus pauvres en créations littéraires"

L'Echo lointain de l'orage : roman by Doris Lessing( Book )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une grande fresque romanesque. Dans les deux premiers volumes, l'excellente romancière sud-africaine brosse le tableau impressionniste d'une jeune blanche et de la société coloniale dans laquelle elle évolue. Par touches à la fois feutrées et violentes, elle nous révèle les exigences politiques, l'âme et le coeur de Martha, nous faisant cheminer avec elle de son adolescence à son mariage, puis pendant les années subséquentes riches en expériences. Dans le troisième volume, Martha se rend à Londres, "cité promise" d'une Angleterre "socialiste" d'après-guerre, pourtant peuplée d'exclus et de "sous-créatures". Aussi à l'aise pour décrire la vie sociale que la vie intérieure ou politique, Doris Lessing appartient à la race des grands écrivains militants qui choisissent leur camp: contre les racistes et les exploiteurs

Players by Don DeLillo( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Players DeLillo explores the dark side of contemporary affluence and its discontents. Pammy and Lyle Wynant are an attractive, modern couple who seem to have it all. Yet behind their "ideal" life is a lingering boredom and quiet desperation: their talk is mostly chatter, their sex life more a matter of obligatory "satisfaction" than pleasure. Then Lyle sees a man killed on the floor of the Stock Exchange and becomes involved with the terrorists responsible; Pammy leaves for Maine with a homosexual couple ... And still they remain untouched, "players" indifferent to the violence that surrounds them, and that they have helped to create
