Sixième roman de Jacques Godbout. Constatant que la race québécoise était bicéphale, le romancier a choisi de raconter la (les) vie(s) d'un monstre à deux têtes: François aime la vie, le français et la logique; Charles rêve, cultive la mélancolie et parle anglais "sans accent". A l'âge de 25 ans, ils décident de se réunir en une seule tête; chacun un hémisphère... Une fable sur la condition humaine et surtout une allégorie politique, qui tire sur la caricature. Un roman réjouissant dans lequel l'auteur fait alterner la verve et l'ironie. Nombreux jeux de mots et traits d'esprit

"The year is 1967." "Michel Larochelle - a Jesuit, an agnostic, and a spy - meets with Haile Selassie - Emperor of Ethiopia, King of kings, Lion of Judah - in a luxury suite at Montreal's Windsor Hotel. Larochelle has been asked to perform a task in the service of Selassie, a secret mission dubbed "Operation Rimbaud." He expects his latest job to be unusual, but quickly learns that what he's being asked to undertake is closer to remarkable. The Emperor claims there are within his kingdom artifacts of incredible power and significance: the Tablets of the Law, the fabled pair of stone carvings bearing the Ten Commandments, the actual word of God. Selassie would like Larochelle to steal them." "What follows is Larochelle's journey into an exotic land, in the midst of an incipient revolution - a wave of reform meant to bring Ethiopia into the 20th century, with political uprisings that threaten Haile Selassie's decades-long reign, set against the worldwide cultural upheaval challenging the very rules embodied by the tablets." "Larochelle, too, is caught in the turmoil. The greatest challenge he must face lies not in the forces intent on: claiming the tablets for themselves, but in reconciling the actions he takes, the passions he indulges, and his service to a Church and God he no longer believes in."-- Book Jacket
