Publisher's Summary

Dans La ronde et autres faits divers, J. M. G. Le Clézio donne aux faits divers de nos journaux leur titre de noblesse, comme un défi à la bienséance littéraire. Il n'y a plus de genre mineur lorsqu'un écrivain met tout son art, toute sa sensibilité dans la contemplation amoureuse des êtres et de leur environnement. Qu'il s'agisse d'un vol à l'arraché qui sombre dans le sang, de l'exploitation d'un immigré clandestin ou de l'irrémédiable dégradation d'une petite ville, l'auteur accomplit ce prodige de nous faire entrer au cœur des sentiments, de changer notre voyeurisme en tendresse.

Belles nouvelles

Une vue interne sur la misère humaine. On comprend que le Clezio l’a vu de près.
Le lecteur est beaucoup trop cabotin.

Trip triste

I read this book during the pandemia. It is so sad. Beautiful vocabulary and descriptions. The narration is accord.
Perhaps in another time it would have impacted me in a positive way, but today I find it depressing.
