Limonov by Emmanuel Carrère( Book )

66 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A thrilling page-turner that also happens to be the biography of one of Russia's most controversial figures This is how Emmanuel Carrère, the magnetic journalist, novelist, filmmaker, chameleon, describes his subject: "Limonov is not a fictional character. There. I know him. He was a rogue in Ukraine; an idol of the Soviet underground under Brezhnev; a bum, then a multimillionaire's valet in Manhattan; a fashionable writer in Paris; a lost soldier in the Balkan wars; and now, in the chaotic ruins of postcommunist Russia, the elderly but charismatic leader of a party of young desperados. He sees himself as a hero; you might call him a scumbag: I suspend my judgment on the matter. It's a dangerous life, an ambiguous life: a real adventure novel. It is also, I believe, a life that says something. Not just about him, Limonov, not just about Russia, but about all our history since the end of World War II." So Limonov isn't fictional--but he might as well be. This pseudo-biography isn't a novel, but it reads like one: from Limonov's grim childhood; to his desperate, comical, ultimately successful attempts to gain the respect of Russia's literary intellectual elite; to his emigration to New York, then to Paris; to his return to the motherland

I am alive and you are dead : a journey into the mind of Philip K. Dick by Emmanuel Carrère( Book )

35 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 661 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 Drawing on interviews as well as unpublished sources, Carrere traces Dick's multiple marriages, paranoid fantasies, and vertiginous encounters with the drug culture of sixties California.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."
