Il n'y a pas de pays sans grand-père by Roch Carrier ( Book )
18 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in French and English and held by 299 libraries worldwide
Edition originale, Stanké, 1977. Un roman grave et optimiste qui, selon R. Martel, dénonce le mépris dont nous entourons aujourd'hui nos vieillards. C'est bien dans la logique de notre société de consommation de les considérer comme des "producteurs taris". Par Menaud interposé, Carrier "tend la main à Louis Hémon pour témoigner de la paradoxale vitalité d'un peuple dépossédé mais qu'on croirait inapte au désespoir". Pour Renald Bérubé, il s'agit d'un roman de l'enracinement, de la continuité, du recours nécessaire à la mémoire. Coupures de presse, p. 119-123.

The lament of Charlie Longsong by Roch Carrier ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Ce roman ambitieux et abondant constitue une sorte de synths̈e des oeuvres de fiction publiěs par Carrier entre 1968 et 1977. L'auteur a choisi de fouiller, de faȯn m̌otive, instinctive, pas scientifique du tout, l'amřicanit"̌ (R. C.), l'histoire nord-amřicaine et surtout franco-amřicaine. L'oeuvre, dans sa 1re partie, est constituě d'une juxtaposition de rčits concurrents qui convergent dans la seconde partie. On peut considřer que la dčouverte par un petit notaire de l'l̋e d'Orlǎns que son pr̈e ťait Amřindien, et le voyage en Arizona pour rencontrer ledit gňiteur, constituent le noyau de ce roman de guerre et d'amour, non dňu ̌d'arrir̈es plans politiques.

The man in the closet by Roch Carrier ( Book )
14 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and French and held by 122 libraries worldwide
Tentative de viol sur une actrice ##au vert##. Constant est-il, comme le village l'en accuse, l'homme qui ťait cach ̌dans le placard chez les deux filles du Chemin de la montě douce? Il s'agit, pour R. Martel, d'un "joli petit drame", et d'un "roman de moeurs mt́in ̌d'observation sociologique" plutt̥ qu'un "polar". Mais L. Cornellier trouve le livre dčevant au double sens du terme. Mineur et pas trop rǔssi. [SDM].
