""Vivre et écrire le même roman" : Imre Kertész vécut l'écriture comme un acte existentiel et personnel, une expérience de transformation qui lui permettait de liquider son passé, créer une oeuvre et différer la mort. C'est dans la Hongrie communiste, et sous couvert d'une carrière d'auteur de comédies musicales que, dans les années 1960, l'ancien déporté fit de son écriture une activité clandestine à la marge, pour construire l'une des oeuvres majeures du siècle. Nourri de littérature européenne, cet auteur incontournable déploie une méditation sans compromis sur l'Europe, dont la portée fut reconnue, à partir des années 1990, en Allemagne puis en France. Avec le prix Nobel, qui lui valut autant de gloire que de souffrances, et la maladie qui l'entrava à la fin de sa vie : Imre Kertész engagea jusqu'au bout une lutte pour l'écriture que Clara Royer met en lumière dans la première biographie en français qui lui soit consacrée. Fondé sur une vingtaine d'entretiens menés en hongrois par Clara Royer entre 2013 et 2015, jusqu'à ce que la mort frappe Imre Kertész le 31 mars 2016, cet essai biographique utilise aussi des sources totalement inédites : l'écrivain a mis à la disposition de Clara Royer ses documents privés et l'a autorisée à consulter ses archives à l'Académie des arts de Berlin, où elle a eu accès à ses journaux personnels."--Page 4 of cover.

Internationally celebrated Hugarian novelist Laszlo Krasznahorkai has been heralded by Susan Sontag as "the Hungarian master of the apocalypse" and compared favorably to Gogol by W. G. Sebald. A new work by Krasznahorkai is always an event, and The Manhattan Project is no less. As part of Krasznahorkai's fellowship at the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library, he has been working on a novella inspired by a reading of Moby-Dick. Yet, as he follows in Herman Melville's footsteps, a second book alongside the original novella took shape. The Manhattan Project is that book. Offering a unique account of a great literary mind at work, Krasznahorkai reveals here the incidences and coincidences that shape his process of writing and creating. The Manhattan Project explores the act of creation through the lens of Krasznahorkai's encounter with Melville, and it places this vision alongside the work of others who have crossed Melville's path, both literally and fictionally. Presented alongside Krasznahorkai's text are photographs by Ornan Rotem, which trace the encounters of writers and artists with Melville as they crisscross Manhattan, driven by a hunger to unlock the city's inscrutable ways. As Krasznahorkai goes in search of Melville, we journey along with him on the quest for the secret of creativity. The Manhattan Project provides a rare understanding of great literature in the making.

13. Nevada days [2017]

Book
338 pages ; 22 cm
Nevada Days is a fictionalised account of Atxaga's nine months' stay as writer-in-residence at the Centre for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada. He is accompanied by his wife, Angela, who is also doing research there, and by their two daughters. During their first few weeks, the family encounter a strange mapache (racoon), which is always staring at them from the garden, a flight of helicopters immediately overhead, a black widow spider, a warning about bears, a party of prisoners in the desert, a lake that is somehow far too calm and too blue, and, not long into their stay, the kidnap and murder of a young girl living in the house right next door.Atxaga tells us about all these strange encounters, and about his colleagues at the university, about the trips the family make to California and across the Sierra Nevada and to Lake Tahoe, but this narrative is also interspersed with accounts of his dreams, with stories from his past.Nevada Days seductively weaves together past and present, and shows us how deeply marked we are by experience and history and relationships, however fleeting or enduring, and reminds us what a very strange thing life is.Translated from the Spanish by Margaret Jull Costa.

14. The reconstruction [2017]

Book
273 pages ; 22 cm.
"For five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the apparently religiously inspired suicide of his daughter and her friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he cannot do it any longer. He has to travel all over Estonia and even to France to talk to those who might remember anything relevant. Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, others refuse to talk. And little by little, a bigger and quite unexpected picture starts to emerge. From the late 1970s through 2011, the book spans the lives of two generations, the changes in the world at large and the Estonian society in particular, the transition from a world of rights and wrongs to a world where most things are neither, but the yearning for absolute truths still won't go away."-- Provided by publisher.
