« Pour le trade, los angeles guerre présente beaucoup d'avantages, même après. »

Sur les ruines du plus grand carnage du XXe siècle, deux rescapés des tranchées, passablement abîmés, prennent leur revanche en réalisant une escroquerie aussi spectaculaire qu'amorale. Des sentiers de l. a. gloire à l. a. subversion de los angeles patrie victorieuse, ils vont découvrir que l. a. France ne plaisante pas avec ses morts...

Fresque d'une infrequent cruauté, remarquable par son structure et sa puissance d'évocation, Au revoir là-haut est le grand roman de l'après-guerre de 14, de l'illusion de l'armistice, de l'État qui glorifie ses disparus et se débarrasse de vivants trop encombrants, de l'abomination érigée en vertu.

Dans l'atmosphère crépusculaire des lendemains qui déchantent, peuplée de misérables pantins et de lâches reçus en héros, Pierre Lemaitre compose los angeles grande tragédie de cette génération perdue avec un expertise et une maîtrise impressionnants.
