Os dragões não conhecem o paraíso by Caio Fernando Abreu( Book )

18 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les fruits de l'œuvre de Caio Fernando, hors des paradis tropicaux au goût des appétits européens sont ceux d'un Brésil en décomposition, de carnavals macabres masqués par le Carnaval. Les fruits des gigantesques centres urbains tels que Sao Paulo : anonymat, solitudes, précarité, violence, prostitutions; intoxication par toutes les drogues, au propre et au figuré. L'écriture est impressionnée par ce regard, comme une plaque photographique: elle ne décrit pas, elle est violence, clichés, laideur, solitude, abandon, folie. Mais sa lecture, par un effet de paradoxe hautement littéraire, parle maîtrise, poésie, beauté, solidarité, lucidité, et une histoire horrible devient belle. Des enfers de Caio Fernando on sort, béant. La nouvelle, forme par excellence du monde latino-américain, est le terrain naturel de son univers fragmenté. Ici, rien ne dure, rien ne s'affirme, tout lasse, casse et passe. Dans l'ironie mortelle est la vivante simplicité." Claire Cayron. -- Back cover

"Sur Une petite plage de sable clair, là-bas au bord de la rivière, un drame s'est joué. Face à la mer ou en écoutant A l'occasion d'une grande peine -- mélodie d'Erik Satie -- le dialogue est malaisé. Impossible? Non, pas pour Ces deux-là, malgré l'hostilité qui les entoure. Dans la dépersonnalisation engendrée par le monde moderne et la vie urbaine, les Photographies remplacent la chaise vide. Un goût de Fraises moisies persiste jusqu'au lever du jour. Quelque part dans Rio de Janeiro, un couple, en proie à la médiocrité de son quotidien professionnel, affectif et sexuel, joue Les survivants. Dans un bar évoquant un aquarium aux eaux sales, un homme de presque quarante ans rencontre un garçon de presque vingt, Le garçon le plus triste du monde. D'où vient la tristesse? Peut-être d'une lointaine culpabilité que la chanson Feuilles mortes vient ressusciter. Alors, emmuré, dans l'effroi de l'âme, on entend, à cinq heures et quart de l'après-midi, la sonnerie du téléphone et L'autre voix. Ainsi vont les histoires du deuxième recueil de nouvelles de Caio Fernando Abreu. Même univers aussi peu tropical que possible pour ce Brésilien qui ne connaît plus que le monde déshumanisé de l'asphalte et revendique, avec une violente douceur, l'affirmation de l'identité hors des conventions, dans l'exploration des profondeurs, et jusqu'à la 'folie'."
