EMMANUEL CARRÈRE

Limonov:
The Outrageous Adventures of the Radical Soviet Poet
Who Became a Bum in New York, A Sensation in France,
and a Political Antihero in Russia

(FSG, 2014)

"The French, who are notoriously divided on literary matters, all seem to agree: there are few great writers in France today, and Emmanuel Carrère is one of them." -from The Paris Review


Liminov
is a thrilling page-turner that also happens to be the biography of one of Russia’s most controversial figures

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. He sees himself as a hero; you might call him a scumbag: I suspend my judgment on the matter. It’s a dangerous life, an ambiguous life: a real adventure novel. It is also, I believe, a life that says something. Not just about him, Limonov, not just about Russia, but about all our history since the end of the Second World War.”


"...perhaps because he conducts himself less like a grand homme de lettres, and more like a journalist and film-maker, with discretion, modesty and good humour, Carrère's reputation has never progressed very far in the Anglo-Saxon world. Today, he is probably the most important French writer you've never heard of... Limonov was tailor-made for Carrère's imaginative gifts. " -The Observer
