Beyond suspicion : new American fiction since 1960 by Marc Chénetier( Book )

24 editions published between 1989 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this landmark study, Marc Chenetier provides a synthetic view of developments in American fiction between 1960 and the 1990s. Beyond Suspicion focuses primarily on the works of Gaddis, Pynchon, Elkin, McElroy, Hawkes, Nabokov, Gass, Barth, and Coover, although a host of other writers are discussed as well. Chenetier argues that traditional generic approaches to this body of work are misleading. He rejects the categorization of works by their writer's region, race, and gender, and suggests instead an examination of works from a variety of artistic and epistemological viewpoints. Chenetier's status as outsider - geographically speaking - fosters this approach; from his critical distance, he is able to look on American letters with a very specific and individual point of view. Beyond Suspicion is notable too for the grace with which it links the concerns of French literary theory with those of American fiction

With her debut novel, At Risk, Rimington introduced us to Liz Carlyle--a smart, impassioned MI5 intelligence officer whose talents and ambitions are counterbalanced by an abiding awareness of her job's moral complexities. Here, we are plunged back into her high-stakes, high-tension world. Liz has always been particularly skilled at "assessing people," and when one of her agents reports suspicious meetings taking place at an Islamic bookshop, she trusts her instinct that a terrorist cell is at work. Her boss, Charles Wetherby, Director of Counter-Terrorism, immediately puts a surveillance operation into place. But then Wetherby suddenly takes her off the case: he has received a tip-off that a mole--a "secret asset"--Has been planted in British Intelligence. As her colleagues work to avert an impending terrorist strike, Liz is charged with the momentous task of uncovering and exposing the mole before it's too late.--From publisher description

Le premier récit se situe dans une surprenante Amérique, celle "qui n'est souvent qu'un lieu imaginaire". Il est tranquillement fou (comme l'écrit Guy Vidal), candide, léger, désaltérant, plein d'un humour biscornu (selon Gabrielle Rolin) et subvertit une tradition littéraire américaine tout en la prolongeant. ##La pêche à la truite en Amérique## est de ce genre de livres qui soulèvent la passion de certains lecteurs et leur donnent l'impression d'être dépositaires d'un bonheur à faire partager. ##Sucre de pastèque## est une vision idéalisée de Bolinas, en Californie, avec sa population marginale et artiste, ainsi qu'une sorte de topographie de l'imagination de Brautigan (selon Marc Chénetier, en 1994).
