"Quel pouvoir de narration ! Quelle sûreté et quelle férocité !" écrivait François Jodin dans "La Liberté" à propos de cet ouvrage de l'auteur d'"Affliction" et du "Livre de la Jamaïque". Tout en précisant que "on y trouve la face cachée d'une Amérique où les cellules familiales et sociales sont brisées, et des tranches de vie dans un monde d'illusions où l'échec est la seule réalité..."
Lost memory of skin by Russell Banks( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a novel that illuminates the shadowed edges of contemporary American culture with startling and unforgettable results. Suspended in a strangely modern day version of limbo, the young man at the center of this morally complex new novel must create a life for himself in the wake of incarceration. Known in his new identity only as the Kid, and on probation after doing time for a liaison with an underage girl, he is shackled to a GPS monitoring device and forbidden to live within 2,500 feet of anywhere children might gather. With nowhere else to go, the Kid takes up residence under a south Florida causeway, in a makeshift encampment with other convicted sex offenders. Barely beyond childhood himself, the Kid, despite his crime, is in many ways an innocent, trapped by impulses and foolish choices he himself struggles to comprehend. Enter the Professor, a man who has built his own life on secrets and lies. A university sociologist of enormous size and intellect, he finds in the Kid the perfect subject for his research on homelessness and recidivism among convicted sex offenders. The two men forge a tentative partnership, the Kid remaining wary of the Professor's motives even as he accepts the counsel and financial assistance of the older man. When the camp beneath the causeway is raided by the police, and later, when a hurricane all but destroys the settlement, the Professor tries to help the Kid in practical matters while trying to teach his young charge new ways of looking at, and understanding, what he has done. But when the Professor's past resurfaces and threatens to destroy his carefully constructed world, the balance in the two men's relationship shifts. Suddenly, the Kid must reconsider everything he has come to believe, and choose what course of action to take when faced with a new kind of moral decision. In this novel the author examines the indistinct boundaries between our intentions and actions. It probes the zeitgeist of a troubled society where zero tolerance has erased any hope of subtlety and compassion, a society where isolating the offender has perhaps created a new kind of victim
Searching for survivors by Russell Banks( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre peut se lire comme un roman, un conte, un récit avec rencontres et mésaventures. Mais c'est aussi, écrit en filigrane, une espèce de traité contre le désespoir, une affirmation paisible et furieuse en faveur de la vie. Avec cela de l'humour. Il y a des choses trop terribles pour qu'on en parle autrement que légèrement. Ce livre est gai, justement là où, généralement, la gaieté cesse
