About this title


Flann O'Brien (1911-1966) est considere, avec Joyce et Beckett, comme l'un des grands Irlandais de la litterature mondiale. Ses romans, du Troisieme policier a L'Archiviste de Dublin, en passant par At-Swim-To-Birds, lui valent l'admiration de Dylan Thomas, John Updike, ou encore Nicholson Baker et Edna O'Brien, parmi d'autres. Mais ce sont ses chroniques, publiees de 1940 a sa mort dans l'Irish Times sous le pseudonyme de Myles na gCopaleen, qui lui valurent celle de ses contemporains. Au fil de ces trente annees de chroniques, Flann O'Brien s'est penche sur toutes les grandes questions qui agitent l'humanite: l'art, la litterature, la mort, mais aussi les usages possibles du ventriloquisme, les raseurs, l'art de passer pour intelligent ou de detamiser la farine. Bourru, bougon, atrabilaire et surtout malpensant, Flann O'Brien denonce avec jubilation les ridicules tant de la bonne societe que du bon peuple d'Irlande . A la fois drole et cruel, O'Brien versus Myles affiche le rejet des conventions de son siecle et revele tout l'art quotidien d'un satiriste hors pair, d'un illusionniste delirant a l'humour aiguise, autrement dit the best of Myles .
