Amazon Editorial Review

Prix Goncourt 1993. L'histoire de ce roman tourne autour d'un personnage illustre dans tout le Moyen-Orient et dont nul ne sait s'il fut réel ou légendaire : Tanios-Kichk ; et quand Amin Maalouf commence son récit, ce patronyme désigne un rocher sur lequel les enfants n'ont pas le droit de jouer. Tanios avait, autrefois, assassiné un prélat qui lui avait "dérobé" une femme. Par la suite, Tanios avait erré en Méditerranée avant de tomber dans un piège tendu par la famille dudit prélat trente années après le meurtre de leur ancêtre. Tanios est assassiné, puis transformé en rocher dans la région des Monts-Liban... On pourrait dire que cette légende est le sujet de ce roman. Or, ce n'en est que le point de départ... Le livre que l'on va lire, en effet, est l'enquête menée par un narrateur dont la famille a été mêlée à l'assassinat de Tanios-Kichk. Dès lors, dans une construction romanesque savante et pleine d'aventures, le lecteur entreprend un grand voyage dont le thème pourrait ainsi se résumer : comment et pourquoi naissent les légendes ?
