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 world of the gift by Jacques Godbout ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In an age dominated by consumerism and government agencies, many people believe that self-interest is the dominant motive in society. Gifts are seen as, at best, irrelevant frills. In The World of the Gift Jacques Godbout and Alain Caille show that, in fact, the gifts is all-pervasive in our society." "The authors describe the gift not as an object but as a social connection, perhaps the most important social connection because it creates a sense of obligation to respond in kind. They examine how the gift works today in a broad range of cases such as blood and organ donation; volunteer work; the bonds between friends, couples, and family; Santa Claus; the interaction between performers and their audience; and the relation of the artist to society."--BOOK JACKET
