Enemies of promise by Cyril Connolly( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Livre "revigorant et acidulé" (A. Rinaldi), écrit en 1938 par un éminent critique littéraire de l'époque. Pour une partie, il s'agit d'un savant panorama de la situation du roman anglo-saxon en 1938. Puis C. Connolly "s'attaque aux écueils qui guettent l'écrivain": le succès, l'illusion de la postérité, la politique, le mariage, le travail de critique littéraire, le journalisme, etc. Dans une troisième partie, autobiographique, l'auteur "explore dans son enfance ce qui a pu forger" son sens critique (selon M. Braudeau) et se livre à l'analyse critique des "public schools" dont il est issu

The dark by John McGahern( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chronique douce-amère d'une adolescence irlandaise, noyée de rêves et de douleurs, L'Obscur est à ranger parmi les grands romans d'initiation. Une famille désarticulée par la mort d'une mère. Un père aux moeurs simples et frustes dépassé par la nécessité d'élever des enfants sans le secours d'une femme. Un fils, juste adolescent, dont l'horizon de vie s'échappe vers l'espérance d'un avenir glorieux ... Mais le réel trop souvent, excelle à effacer les rêves et, dès les premières pages, la tonalité du malheur fixe les couleurs du roman. Deuxième roman de McGahern, l'Obscur raconte la tentative, vouée à l'échec, d'un pupille qui veut devenir tuteur, d'un fils qui rêve de " briser irrévocablement le pouvoir du père " pour le remplacer par la " bonté et la splendeur " de sa propre vie. Ici l'ordinaire de la vie confine au tragique et le rêve s'échoue sur les rives de la médiocrité. Un texte puissant sur les métamorphoses de la jeunesse et les pesanteurs du destin

The poorhouse fair by John Updike( Book )

5 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the third Wednesday of every August the inhabitants of a mansion-turned-poorhouse in central New Jersey hold their annual fair; this novel describes a fair that occurs about twenty years from now [1958], when the United States itself is heading downhill ... While 'The Poorhouse Fair, ' insofar as it regrets the decline of patriotism, handcraft, and religion, carries a conservative message, its technique is unorthodox; without so much regard for fictional conventions, the author attempts to locate, in the ambiguous area between farce and melodrama, reality's own tone."
