"Marc Lacroix, a psychotherapist, develops a computer that allows two people to exchange personalities. He chooses as his first subject Michel Zyto, his prize patient - a psychopathic sex offender and suspected serial killer. This is the point of departure in a chillingly realistic novel, the ultimate story of switched and stolen identity." "What begins as a cutting-edge experiment in mind-body exploration spirals into a nightmare of page-turning suspense when, in his therapist's body, the patient escapes. Savagely sophisticated and intellectually cunning, Zyto uses his newfound incarnation to full advantage with Lacroix's colleagues, wife, and young son. Hidden in the perfect disguise, he plots one perfect crime after another until the deception is carried to its shocking and supremely logical extreme." "A high-tech Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Machine turns and twists with deadly speed and diabolical precision, and Rene Belletto provides plenty to think about along the way. Do we all have bits and pieces of other people inside us? What sort of "transference" occurs in close relationships? How do our bodies shape our identities, for ourselves and others? To what unimaginable horrors will our faith in science lead? Are we just ghosts in biological machines?" "Something of a cross between Thomas Harris and J. G. Ballard, Machine is that rare thing - a novel that succeeds in stopping the heart while stirring the mind."--BOOK JACKET
Coda : a novel by René Belletto( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in French and English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Playing with the expectations of the reader, Belletto constructs a logical puzzle that defies logic, much like the 'almost-perpetual motion machine' invented by the narrator and his father. What sets the story in (perpetual) motion is a package of frozen seafood. This lowly mechanism triggers a series of picaresque and otherworldly events, from the storyteller's meeting with Fate disguised as a beautiful woman, to the kidnapping of his daughter, to his amorous reunion with the younger half-sister of a high school friend, to the elimination of death from the world."--Page 4 of cover
Dying by René Belletto( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in French and English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take several genre novels telling similar stories of love and death--a spy novel, a romance, an adventure tale--mix them together so that items and images from each start popping up in the others, add playful asides--such as a several-page historical digression on the etymology of the word "prison"--And a collagist's sensibility, and you might end up with the untethered celebration of writing that is novelist Rene Belletto's Dying. Built upon two obliquely converse stories--one of a man who finds himself paying ransom for a woman he's never met, the other of a man who fakes his own death to escape a woman whose devotion has begun to terrify him--Belletto's weird, funny, surprising, and wonderful novel cuts strange and circuitous byways through the landscapes of contemporary literature
