    Gripped by the tale of a Messiah whose blood we drink and body we eat, the genre-defying author Emmanuel Carrère revisits the story of the early Church in his latest work. With an idiosyncratic and at times iconoclastic take on the charms and foibles of the Church fathers, Carrère ferries listeners through his "doors" into the biblical narrative. Once inside, he follows the ragtag group of early Christians through the tumultuous days of the faith's founding.

    On the Saturday morning of January 9, 1993, while Jean Claude Romand was killing his wife and children, I was with mine in a parent-teacher meeting.... With these chilling first words, acclaimed master of psychological suspense Emmanuel Carrère begins his exploration of the double life of a respectable doctor, 18 years of lies, five murders and the extremes to which ordinary people can go.

    "Limonov n'est pas un personnage de fiction. Il existe. Je le connais. Il a été voyou en Ukraine ; l'idole de l'underground soviétique sous Brejnev ; clochard, puis valet de chambre d'un milliardaire à Manhattan ; écrivain branché à Paris ; soldat perdu dans les guerres des Balkans ; et maintenant, dans l'immense bordel de l'après-communisme en Russie, vieux chef charismatique d'un parti de jeunes desperados. Lui-même se voit comme un héros, on peut le considérer comme un salaud : je suspends pour ma part mon jugement.

    This is how Emmanuel Carrère, the magnetic journalist, novelist, filmmaker, and chameleon, describes his subject: "Limonov is not a fictional character. There. I know him. He has been a young punk in Ukraine, the idol of the Soviet underground; a bum, then a multimillionaire's butler in Manhattan; a fashionable writer in Paris; a lost soldier in the Balkans; and now, in the fantastic shambles of postcommunism, the elderly but charismatic leader of a party of young desperadoes."

    À un moment de ma vie, j'ai été chrétien. Cela a duré trois ans. C'est passé. Affaire classée, alors ? Il faut qu'elle ne le soit pas tout à fait pour que, vingt ans plus tard, j'aie éprouvé le besoin d'y revenir. Ces chemins du Nouveau Testament que j'ai autrefois parcourus en croyant, je les parcours aujourd'hui - en romancier ? en historien ? Disons en enquêteur.

    "À quelques mois d'intervalle, la vie m'a rendu témoin des deux événements qui me font le plus peur au monde : la mort d'un enfant pour ses parents, celle d'une jeune femme pour ses enfants et son mari. Quelqu'un m'a dit alors : tu es écrivain, pourquoi n'écris-tu pas notre histoire ? C'était une commande, je l'ai acceptée. C'est ainsi que je me suis retrouvé à raconter l'amitié entre un homme et une femme, tous deux rescapés d'un cancer, tous deux boiteux et tous deux juges, qui s'occupaient d'affaires de surendettement au tribunal d'instance de Vienne (Isère)."

    Set in Paris and Kotelnich, a small post-Soviet town, My Life as a Russian Novel traces Carrere's pursuit of two obsessions: the disappearance of his Russian grandfather and his erotic fascination with a woman he loves but cannot keep from destroying. In prose that is elegant and passionate, Carrere weaves the strands of his story into a travelogue of a journey inward.

    Una vita degna d'un romanzo d'avventura. Tra delinquenza e poesia, Limonov ha conosciuto i casermoni ucraini e il jet set di Manhattan, ha attraversato la guerra nei gelidi Balcani e le peggiori prigioni russe, fino a diventare capo venerato di un partito nazionalbolscevico in pieno postcomunismo. Il travolgente racconto della vita oltraggiosa di un uomo inquietante e commovente, scritto da uno scrittore che non teme le pieghe più oscure della realtà.
