A classic of modern fiction, The Erl-King is a magisterial tale of innocence, perversion and obsession.

Le médianoche amoureux : contes et nouvelles by Michel Tournier( Book )

45 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une vingtaine de nouvelles et de contes dans lesquels se déploie "l'art subtil du détour et du leurre" d'un écrivain accompli qui joue ici sur les registres du jeu et de l'ironie et affirme que chacune des histoires "évoque un grand sujet classique sous des formes opposées". Des faiblesses (##L'auto fantôme##, etc.) et des textes nourris d'une mince anecdote (##Ecrire debout##, etc.). Pour A. Girard "un ensemble somptueux de saveurs discrètes". Pour A. Rinaldi "pas une phrase qui retienne". Ainsi va la critique littéraire
