I am alive and you are dead : a journey into the mind of Philip K. Dick by Emmanuel Carrère ( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the style that won accolades for The Adversary, Emmanuel Carrere follows Dick's strange odyssey from his traumatic beginnings in 1928, when his twin sister died in infancy, to his lonely end in 1982, beset by mystical visions of swirling pink light, three-eyed invaders, and messages from the Roman Empire. Drawing on interviews as well as unpublished sources, Carrere traces Dick's multiple marriages, paranoid fantasies, and vertiginous encounters with the drug culture of sixties California. He conjures the spirit of this restless observer of American postwar malaise, whose more than fifty novels subverted the materials of science fiction - parallel universes, intricate time loops, collective delusions - to create classic works of contemporary anxiety."

Limonov by Emmanuel Carrère ( Book )
19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Limonov n'est pas un personnage de fiction. Il existe. Je le connais. Il a été voyou en Ukraine; idole de l'underground soviétique sous Brejnev; clochard, puis valet de chambre d'un milliardaire à Manhattan; écrivain branché à Paris; soldat perdu dans les guerres des Balkans; et maintenant, dans l'immense bordel de l'après-communisme en Russie, vieux chef charisma-tique d'un parti de jeunes desperados. Lui-même se voit comme un héros, on peut le considérer comme un salaud : je suspends pour ma part mon jugement. C'est une vie dangereuse, ambiguë : un vrai roman d'aventures. C'est aussi, je crois, une vie qui raconte quelque chose. Pas seulement sur lui, Limonov, pas seulement sur la Russie, mais sur notre histoire à tous depuis la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale."--P. [4] of cover

D'après Jacques Folch-Ribas, ##La Presse##, 31 mai 1986, "ce roman est une hallucination vicieuse et collective". Récit plaisant, assez mineur, "chouchou" de la critique française

Other lives but mine by Emmanuel Carrère ( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an unflinching record of devastating loss and the wealth of human solace that follows in its wake. 'The night before the wave, I remember that Helene and I talked about separating. It wouldn't be complicated; we didn't live together, hadn't had a child, and were even able to see ourselves remaining friends, and yet, it was sad. It was Christmas 2004.' In Sri Lanka, a tsunami sweeps a child out to sea, her grandfather helpless against the onrushing water. In France, a young woman succumbs to illness, leaving her husband and small children bereft. Present at both events, Emmanuel Carrere sets out to tell the story of two families - shattered and ultimately restored. What he accomplishes is nothing short of a literary miracle: a heartrending narrative of endless love, a meditation on courage and decency in the face of adversity, an intimate and reverent look at the extraordinary beauty and nobility of ordinary lives
