No country without grandfathers by Roch Carrier( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in French and English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un roman grave et optimiste qui, selon R. Martel, dénonce le mépris condescendant ou simplement grossier dont nous entourons aujourd'hui nos vieillards. C'est bien dans la logique de notre société de consommation de les considérer comme des déchus, des "producteurs taris". Roch Carrier dont l'oeuvre, depuis quelques années, marquait le pas, "par Menaud interposé, tend la main à Louis Hémon pour témoigner de la paradoxale vitalité d'un peuple dépossédé mais qu'on croirait inapte au désespoir". [SDM]

The lament of Charlie Longsong by Roch Carrier( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and French and held by 200 WorldCat member 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.
