Un autre roman-joute, roman-duel et roman-miroir comme les aime l'extravagante auteure. Le héros est victime d'un importun qui l'oblige à écouter son verbiage, puis ses plus intimes confidences.

Peplum by Amélie Nothomb( Book )

48 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The man known as Blutch is one of the giants of contemporary comics, and Peplum may be his masterpiece: a grand, strange dream of ancient Rome. At the edge of the empire, a gang of bandits discovers the body of a beautiful woman in a cave; she is encased in ice but may still be alive. One of the bandits, bearing a stolen name and with the frozen maiden still in tow, makes his way toward Rome--seeking power, or maybe just survival, as the world unravels. Thrilling and hallucinatory, vast in scope yet unnervingly intimate, Peplum weaves together threads from Shakespeare and The Satyricon along with Blutch's own distinctive vision. His hypnotic storytelling and stark, gorgeous art pull us into one of the great works of graphic literature, translated into English for the first time"--
