Named by The New Yorker one of the Twenty Best American Fiction Writers Under Forty, George Saunders has been recognized as a visionary storyteller with a hypnotic style.

These stories bring greater wisdom and maturity to the worldview he established with his first collection, and leave little doubt that he has found a place in modern fiction all his own

Les gloutons glouterons du village de Frip by George Saunders( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une fillette prénommée Capable vit avec son père, veuf depuis peu et névrosé, dans le village côtier de Frip où d'étranges créatures (qui s'apparentent à la teigne) s'attaquent aux troupeaux de chèvres. Les enfants des trois élevages sont contraints depuis des générations à brosser ces "glouterons" parasitaires des toisons et de les jeter à la mer d'où ils ré-émergeront pour retrouver l'animal dont ils raffolent. Capable, fatiguée de ce régime, en voit un jour son troupeau infesté tandis que ses voisins en sont débarrassés. Sous prétexte qu'elle ne mérite que ce qu'elle a, ils refusent de l'aider. Elle change de métier, vend ses chèvres, se met à la pêche. Les glouterons, avides de nouvelles chairs, rabattent leur appétit sur le troupeau voisin... Ce conte original, tant dans son texte magnifiquement traduit et ses illustrations romantiques indissociables du récit, propose un regard ironique sur la chance, le mérite et la destinée. Il offre de plus, de manière plus optimiste, une fin heureuse aux habitants de Frip et une fin singulière aux glouterons. Un grand plaisir à milles lieues des aventures de Walt Disney. [SDM]
