Queer by William S Burroughs( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le héros de Queer s'appelle Lee, comme le personnage de Junkie (le premier roman de Burroughs, qu'il avait à l'origine précisément signé du pseudonyme de William Lee). Le caractère autobiographique de ce texte est donc confirmé, d'autant plus que Burroughs rappelle dans sa préface qu'il a passé la fin des années 40 à Mexico, comme son héros. Comme d'habitude cependant chez Burroughs, la fantaisie phagocyte la réalité. Queer est en effet le récit halluciné d'une errance, d'un mal de vivre incurable qui a pour toile de fond un Mexique couleur de cauchemar, avec son soleil obsédant, ses étendues de tôles ondulées et toute une faune pittoresque et violente Lee, héros désenchanté, erre de bar en bar, noyant son désespoir dans l'alcool, dans la drague, à la fois avide et indifférent, spectre sur qui on sent en permanence peser la menace d'une dissolution. Son seul repère : Allerton, jeune homme indolent jaloux de son indépendance, mais aussi secrètement flatté d'être l'objet de la convoitise de Lee. A force de séduction, de prévenance et de ténacité, Lee parviendra à ses fins et accompagnera ensuite son compagnon dans une étrange expédition à travers l'Amérique du Sud à la recherche d'une mystérieuse drogue, le Yage, connue pour ses pouvoirs télépathiques. Queer est essentiellement une peinture du manque, le récit d'une douloureuse tentative de sevrage. Par delà son exotisme sulfureux, ce roman est la remarquable radiographie d'une détresse sans autre recours que l'écriture. (Editore)

Hell's Angels : a strange and terrible saga by Hunter S Thompson( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hell's Angels" was Hunter Thompson's first book, an account of the year that the reporter spent riding with the biker gang, then the very symbol of dangerous counterculture. After writing a piece on the Heirs Angels and other cycle gangs for The Nation, Thompson signed a contract with Ballantine and spent time with "as many vicious thugs as possible." His involvement ended on Labor Day 1966 when a group of Angels "stomped" Thompson, nearly kicking him to death. "Far from being freaks, the Hell's Angels are a logical product of the culture that now claims to be shocked by their existence. The generation represented by the editors of Time has lived so long in a world full of celluloid outlaws hustling toothpaste and hair oil that it is no longer capable of confronting the real thing. For twenty years they have sat with their children and watched yesterday's outlaws raise hell with yesterday's world ... and now they are bringing up children who think Jesse James is a television character." "California, Labor Day weekend ... early, with ocean fog still in the streets, outlaw motorcyclists wearing chains, shades and greasy Levis roll out from damp garages, all-night diners and cast-off one-night pads in Frisco, Hollywood, Berdoo and East Oakland, heading for the Monterey peninsula, north of Big Sur. . . The Menace is loose again." Thus begins Hunter S. Thompson's vivid account of his experiences with California's most no-torious motorcycle gang, the Hell's Angels. In the mid-1960s, Thompson spent almost two years living with the controversial An-gels, cycling up and down the coast, reveling in the anarchic spirit of their clan, and, as befits their name, raising hell. His book successfully captures a singular moment in American history, when the biker lifestyle was first defined, and when such countercultural movements were electrifying and horrifying America. Thompson, the creator of Gonzo journalism, writes with his usual bravado, energy, and brutal honesty, and with a nuanced and incisive eye; as The New Yorker pointed out, "For all its uninhibited and sardonic humor, Thompson's book is a thoughtful piece of work." As illuminating now as when originally published in 1967, Hell's Angels is a gripping portrait, and the best account we have of the truth behind an American legend
