"Sur Tchernobyl, des dizaines d'ouvrages ont été écrits, des milliers de mètres de bandes vidéo tournées... Ce livre, cependant, parle non pas de Tchernobyl mais du monde de Tchernobyl dont nous ne connaissons presque rien, non pas de la catastrophe mais de ce qui a suivi, d'un monde nouveau et différent, pour lequel il n'y a pas de langage. " Trois années durant, j'ai voyagé et questionné des hommes et des femmes de générations, de destins, de tempéraments différents. Tchernobyl est leur monde. Il empoisonne tout autour d'eux, la terre, l'air, l'eau mais aussi tout en eux, la conscience, le temps, la vie intérieure. " Faire que ce que plusieurs racontent devienne l'Histoire : en voyageant, en cédant la parole à ces gens, j'ai souvent eu l'impression de noter le futur, notre futur. " Ainsi parle Svetlana Alexievitch de La Supplication. Tout comme l'oeuvre de Primo Levi sur Auschwitz ou celle d'Alexandre Soljenitsyne sur le Goulag, son livre nomme l'indicible en faisant entendre, pour la première fois, les voix suppliciées de Tchernobyl. Écrivain et journaliste biélorusse, dissidente soutenue par le Pen-Club et la Fondation Soros, rendue célèbre dans le monde entier par Les Cercueils de zinc, ouvrage mémorial sur la guerre d'Afghanistan, Svetlana Alexievitch a déjà reçu, en Allemagne, Le Prix du livre politique et Le Prix des Libraires pour La Supplication. Elle vient de recevoir le 8 octobre 2015 le Prix Nobel de littérature.

Il y a quarante ans, on ne parlait que d’eux. Ils faisaient la une des journaux quand on les mettait en prison ou quand on les échangeait au milieu d’un pont. Et puis le camp communiste a basculé. Ils ont presque totalement disparu de la scène, balayés par les peuples et les anciens apparatchiks reconvertis en démocrates. Depuis quelques années, les dissidents réapparaissent un peu partout. Comme leurs aînés, ils refusent la lutte armée et rejettent la violence. Ils n’ont pas d’ambition politique : ce sont des individualistes. Leur démarche est d’abord éthique. Ce qu’ils ont sous leurs yeux les révolte et ils décident de réagir, c’est tout. Comment ? En inventant des formes d’actions, à leurs risques et périls. Michel Eltchaninoff est allé les rencontrer, là où ils vivent. À Téhéran, où une jeune femme qui ne supporte pas l’obligation de porter le voile enregistre un clip sur un toit de la ville et danse tête nue en compagnie de garçons. En Belarus, où des opposants, épuisés d’avoir pris tant de coups, créent des revues et des galeries d’art pour survivre sous la chape de la dictature. En Inde, où le successeur du Dalaï Lama, le 17e karmapa, s’est réfugié et tente de faire espérer le peuple tibétain en voie de disparition. Qu’ils vivent en régime dictatorial ou dans un État corrompu, ils créent ou redécouvrent des moyens d’expression originaux. Loin des faux dissidents de l’extrême-droite complotiste d’aujourd’hui, loin des lassitudes occidentales, ils décident de faire de leur vie quelque chose dont ils puissent être fiers.

"This book is a confession, a document and a record of people's memory. More than 200 women speak in it, describing how young girls, who dreamed of becoming brides, became soldiers in 1941. More than 500,000 Soviet women participated on a par with men in the Second World War, the most terrible war of the 20th century. Women not only rescued and bandaged the wounded but also fires a sniper's rifle, blew up bridges, went reconnoitering and killed... They killed the enemy who, with unprecedented cruelty, had attacked their land, their homes and their children. Soviet writer of Byelorussia, Svetlana Alexiyevich spent four years working on the book, visiting over 100 cities and towns, settlements and villages and recording the stories and reminiscences of women war veterans. The soviet press called the book 'a vivid reporting of events long past, which affected the destiny of the nation as a whole.' The most important thing about the book is not so much the front-line episodes as women's heart-rending experiences in the war. Through their testimony the past makes an impassioned appeal to the present, denouncing yesterday's and today's fascism..."--

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The magnum opus and latest work from Svetlana Alexievich, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature—a symphonic oral history about the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a new Russia NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY • LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE WINNER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Wall Street Journal • NPR • Financial Times • Kirkus Reviews When the Swedish Academy awarded Svetlana Alexievich the Nobel Prize, it cited her for inventing “a new kind of literary genre,” describing her work as “a history of emotions—a history of the soul.” Alexievich’s distinctive documentary style, combining extended individual monologues with a collage of voices, records the stories of ordinary women and men who are rarely given the opportunity to speak, whose experiences are often lost in the official histories of the nation. In Secondhand Time, Alexievich chronicles the demise of communism. Everyday Russian citizens recount the past thirty years, showing us what life was like during the fall of the Soviet Union and what it’s like to live in the new Russia left in its wake. Through interviews spanning 1991 to 2012, Alexievich takes us behind the propaganda and contrived media accounts, giving us a panoramic portrait of contemporary Russia and Russians who still carry memories of oppression, terror, famine, massacres—but also of pride in their country, hope for the future, and a belief that everyone was working and fighting together to bring about a utopia. Here is an account of life in the aftermath of an idea so powerful it once dominated a third of the world. A magnificent tapestry of the sorrows and triumphs of the human spirit woven by a master, Secondhand Time tells the stories that together make up the true history of a nation. “Through the voices of those who confided in her,” The Nation writes, “Alexievich tells us about human nature, about our dreams, our choices, about good and evil—in a word, about ourselves.” Praise for Svetlana Alexievich and Secondhand Time “The nonfiction volume that has done the most to deepen the emotional understanding of Russia during and after the collapse of the Soviet Union of late is Svetlana Alexievich’s oral history Secondhand Time.”—David Remnick, The New Yorker “Like the greatest works of fiction, Secondhand Time is a comprehensive and unflinching exploration of the human condition. . . . In its scope and wisdom, Secondhand Time is comparable to War and Peace.”—The Wall Street Journal “Already hailed as a masterpiece across Europe, Secondhand Time is an intimate portrait of a country yearning for meaning after the sudden lurch from Communism to capitalism in the 1990s plunged it into existential crisis.”—The New York Times “This is the kind of history, otherwise almost unacknowledged by today’s dictatorships, that matters.”—The Christian Science Monitor “In this spellbinding book, Svetlana Alexievich orchestrates a rich symphony of Russian voices telling their stories of love and death, joy and sorrow, as they try to make sense of the twentieth century.”—J. M. Coetzee

Under a crimson dawn sky, Artyom Telvatnikov stands in a field of cows, his fingertips glistening with warm blood that streams from their ears. It is April 1986, and ten miles away, above the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, clusters of sparks fill the air, inflaming the final years of the Soviet Union, inciting its citizens to actions of brutality, mystery and terrible beauty. Grigory, a surgeon working in the wake of the disaster, in a place where all natural order has been distorted, is forced to question everything he has known. In Moscow, his estranged wife, Maria, a former dissident, struggles to free herself from the constraints imposed upon her by the state. Her nephew Yevgeni is a nine-year-old piano prodigy whose sense of rhythm is rapidly eroding. In All That Is Solid Melts into Air, Darragh McKeon blends an array of these and other characters into a strikingly visceral portrait of a place and a people in the midst of terrifying change. Praise for All That is Solid Melts into Air “This daring and ambitious novel blends historical epic and love story with a detailed and moving description of the Chernobyl disaster and the fall of the Soviet Union. Darragh McKeon handles the struggles of his characters with care and compassion and creates a book rich with resonance far beyond its historical moment.” —Colm Tóibín “Brilliantly imagined in its harrowing account of the Chernobyl disaster and exhilarating in its sweep, All That is Solid Melts Into Air is a debut to rattle all the windows and open up the ventricles of the heart. McKeon creates a thrilling appearance of ease, while he delves deep and forges new territory for the contemporary novel. The book is daring, exhilarating, generous and beautifully written. History is rendered here as a rising choir of contradictory demands. McKeon probes the forgotten corners of human experience and makes them properly valuable. Throughout it all, he writes with an ear for the quiet captivations of the human heart. All That is Solid Melts into Air marks the beginning of a truly significant career. I cannot say it loud enough. McKeon is here to stay.” —Colum McCann “Darragh McKeon has crafted a quietly monumental portrait of Soviet particulars and human universals. The confidence, insight, and above all deep feeling mark All That is Solid Melts into Air as an astounding debut.” —Charles Foran
