Limonov by Emmanuel Carrère( Book )

60 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This deft, timely translation of French writer and filmmaker Carrere's sparkling 2011 biography of Edward Limonov is an enthralling portrait of a man and his times. The subtitle is no exaggeration: Limonov, a prolific and celebrated author, cofounder of Russia's National Bolshevik Party, onetime coleader of the Drugaya Rossiya opposition movement, and current head of Strategy-31 (which organizes protests in Russia aimed at securing the right to peacefully assemble), has led an extraordinary life. Carrere suggests that Limonov's haphazard turns from budding poet, disillusioned emigre, New York City butler, and Parisian literary rock star to Russian countercultural maverick, Putin opponent, and political prisoner have been prompted by his drive for adventure and fame. Though his behavior is frequently reprehensible (including his lasting flirtation with authoritarian and fascist figures), Carrere's Limonov never dissolves in a mess of unfathomable contradictions. Instead, he emerges as a mirror through which the vortex of culture and politics in the late-Soviet and New Russian eras is reflected. In this astute, witty account, Limonov has found his ideal biographer. There are few more enjoyable descriptions of Russia today"--Publisher's Weekly
I am alive and you are dead : a journey into the mind of Philip K. Dick by Emmanuel Carrère( Book )

39 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 679 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 Drawing on interviews as well as unpublished sources, Carrere traces Dick's multiple marriages, paranoid fantasies, and vertiginous encounters with the drug culture of sixties California.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."

Limonow by Emmanuel Carrère( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eduard Limonow, spätestens seit der Gründung der Nationalbolschewistischen Partei eine der umstrittensten und widersprüchlichsten Figuren Russlands, lebt sein abenteuerliches Leben mit einer schwindelerregenden Intensität. Er hatte Sex mit unzähligen Männern und Frauen, verführte Minderjährige, wurde Familienvater, lebte als hungerleidender und partyfeiernder Dandy in den USA und in Paris, gründete eine Partei, kämpfte als Freiwilliger in diversen Kriegen, tötete und saß im Gefängnis. Seine politische Wandlung vollzog sich von extrem links nach extrem rechts - bis hin zur Auflösung dieser Begriffe. Carrère erzählt in dieser alle Genres sprengenden Romanbiografie, die den Leser von der ersten Seite an in gefesselte Aufmerksamkeit versetzt, die schillernde Geschichte Eduard Limonows, rekonstruiert ein Leben, das ihn fasziniert und auch abstößt - und skizziert wie nebenbei seine eigene Annäherung an das heutige Russland
