Little Ego by Giardino( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little Ego appropriates the look and feel of Winsor McCay's transcendent masterpiece, Little Nemo in Slumberland. Like McCay, Giardino uses the dream formula to free the narrative from the logical strictures a cruelly earthbound reader might seek to impose. But that's not all: in a single deft stroke, Giardino also shakes off any moral strictures as well. Who could object to Ego's erotic frolics - with men, women, the occasional reptile or household implement, or whatever's handiest - when it's all just a dream?

L'enfance by Giardino( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nous sommes à la fin de 1950 quand Jonas Fink, jeune tchèque de 13 ans, voit son père arrêté pour une raison inconnue. Ce milieu "bourgeois" et cultivé représente l'antithèse de cette nouvelle Tchécoslovaquie communiste. Commence alors pour la mère de Jonas une série de brimade qui amène la famille du confort à la précarité. Jonas lui même n'est pas épargné. Ses camarades d'école se détournent progressivement de lui, ses études sont interrompues par manque de place dans les collège ... Il s'agit d'une suite de tableaux cruels qui s'enchassent dans le combat de la véritable mère courage qu'est celle de Jonas. Elle écrit lettre sur lettre pour savoir ce qu'est devenu son mari, se heurte au mutisme et aux menaces de l'administration. Un livre magnifique et désespérant mais totalement fidèle à ce qu'a pu être la vie de quelques intellectuels pas suffisamment souples derrière le rideau de fer
