Read full description of the books:



Lorsque Billy Milligan est transféré à l'hôpital d'État pour malades mentaux criminels de Lima, dans l'Ohio, il ne sait pas encore que débute pour lui une effroyable descente aux enfers. Passages à tabac, racket, camisole chimique, électrochocs, trahisons et suicides... Dans cet univers de violence et de folie, Tommy, le roi de l'évasion, Arthur, l'intellectuel sophistiqué, Ragen, le Yougoslave brutal, et les vingt et un autres "Habitants" avec lesquels le lecteur a fait connaissance dans Les Mille et une vies de Billy Milligan devront faire appel à toutes leurs ressources pour survivre. Le récit de ces douze années de lutte acharnée contre l'inhumanité des institutions médicales et judiciaires, l'opportunisme des politiciens et le cynisme médiatique, mais aussi contre le désespoir et la tentation du suicide se lit comme un palpitant thriller psychologique. Les mille et une guerres de Billy Milligan, en effet, se livrent également dans les profondeurs de son âme, où pour recouvrer la maîtrise de son destin, il devra se résoudre à affronter son plus grand ennemi : lui-même. Violente dénonciation de la brutalité et de l'hypocrisie du système psychiatrique américain, cette extraordinaire histoire vraie propose également une pénétrante réflexion sur la folie et la normalité.

Read information about the author

Ebook Les Mille et une guerres de Billy Milligan read Online! Daniel Keyes was an American author best known for his Hugo award-winning short story and Nebula award-winning novel Flowers for Algernon. Keyes was given the Author Emeritus honor by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2000.

Keyes was born in Brooklyn, New York City, New York. At age 17, he joined the U.S. Maritime Service as ship's purser. He obtained a B.A. in psychology from Brooklyn College, and after a stint in fashion photography (partner in a photography studio), earned a Master's Degree in English and American Literature at night while teaching English in New York City public schools during the day and writing weekends.

In the early 1950s, he was editor of the pulp magazine Marvel Science Fiction for publisher Martin Goodman. Circa 1952, Keyes was one of several staff writers, officially titled editors, who wrote for such horror and science fiction comics as Journey into Unknown Worlds, for which Keyes wrote two stories with artist Basil Wolverton. From 1955-56, Keyes wrote for the celebrated EC Comics, including its titles Shock Illustrated and Confessions Illustrated, under both his own name and the pseudonyms Kris Daniels, A.D. Locke and Dominik Georg.

The short story and subsequent novel, Flowers for Algernon, is written as progress reports of a mentally disabled man, Charlie, who undergoes experimental surgery and briefly becomes a genius before the effects tragically wear off. The story was initially published in the April 1959 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and the expanded novel in 1966. The novel has been adapted several times for other media, most prominently as the 1968 film Charly, starring Cliff Robertson (who won an Academy Award for Best Actor) and Claire Bloom. He also won the Hugo Award in 1959 and the Nebula Award in 1966.

Keyes went on to teach creative writing at Wayne State University, and in 1966 he became an English and creative writing professor at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio, where he was honored as a professor emeritus in 2000.

Keyes' other books include The Fifth Sally, The Minds of Billy Milligan, The Touch, Unveiling Claudia, and the memoir Algernon, Charlie, and I: A Writer's Journey.
