Limonov is not a fictional character, but he could have been. He's lived a hundred lives. He was a hoodlum in Ukraine, an idol of the Soviet underground, punk-poet and valet to a billionaire in Manhattan, fashion writer in Paris, lost soldier in the Balkans, and now, in the chaos after the fall of communism a charismatic party leader of a gang of political desperados. Limonov sees himself as a hero, but he is also a bastard. Carrere suspends judgment. Carrere decided to write about Limonov because he thought 'that his life, romantic and reckless, tells us something, not just about Limonov or Russia, but the story of all of us after the end of World War II.'"

« Limonov n’est pas un personnage de fiction. Il existe. Je le connais. Il a été voyou en Ukraine ; 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. »

Vraiment des hommes sociopathes qui embobinent leurs auditoires , ce n'est pas tellement nouveau dans le firmament de la littérature.

En plus, c'est écrit "platement".
