    1. « L’ORDRE DU JOUR » – Éric Vuillard (Prix Goncourt 2017)

    Ils étaient vingt-quatre, près des arbres morts de la rive, vingt-quatre pardessus noirs, marron ou cognac, vingt-quatre paires d'épaules rembourrées de laine, vingt-quatre costumes trois pièces, et le même nombre de pantalons à pinces avec un large ourlet. Les ombres pénétrèrent le grand vestibule du palais du président de l'Assemblée ; mais bientôt, il n'y aura plus d'Assemblée, il n'y aura plus de président, et, dans quelques années, il n'y aura même plus de Parlement, seulement un amas de décombres fumants.

    2. « LA DISPARITION DE JOSEF MENGELE » - Olivier Guez (Prix Renaudot 2017)

    1949  : Josef Mengele arrive en Argentine.

    Caché derrière divers pseudonymes, l’ancien médecin tortionnaire à Auschwitz  croit pouvoir s’inventer une nouvelle vie à Buenos Aires. L’Argentine de Peron est bienveillante, le monde entier veut oublier les crimes nazis. Mais la traque reprend et le médecin SS doit s’enfuir au Paraguay puis au Brésil. Son errance de planque en planque, déguisé et rongé par l’angoisse, ne connaîtra plus de répit… jusqu’à sa mort mystérieuse sur une plage en 1979. Comment le médecin SS a-t-il pu passer entre les mailles du filet, trente ans durant  ? La Disparition de Josef Mengele est une plongée inouïe au cœur des ténèbres. Anciens nazis, agents du Mossad, femmes cupides et dictateurs d’opérette évoluent dans un monde corrompu par le fanatisme, la realpolitik, l’argent et l’ambition. Voici l’odyssée dantesque de Josef Mengele en Amérique du Sud. Le roman-vrai de sa cavale après-guerre.
