“Je suis né en 1937. Mon père, duquel je me souviens si peu, à part cette image où je le vois me prenant dans ses bras et me soulevant très haut dans les airs, est mort dans un accident de voiture quelques mois avant la déclaration de la guerre. Petit, il paraît que je ne cessais de le réclamer lorsqu’il était au travail, ma mère, elle, en était très fière, car il comptait parmi les hautes autorités du Parti, faisant de nous une famille respectée ...”

 

La première partie de ces ‘Mémoires’ est le texte de l’auteur le plus largement diffusé dans le monde. Il a paru dans des revues littéraires en français (l’Autre Journal, le Bulletin de la Fondation Auschwitz, Les Cahiers du Sens, etc.), en anglais, toujours dans sa propre version, aussi bien aux Etats-Unis, qu’au Canada, en Grande Bretagne et en Inde , réédité à plusieurs reprises, ainsi qu’en traduction italienne, allemande , grecque, turque et polonaise. En août 2014, ce même texte a été pré-sélectionné, sous le titre de 'Venitian Thresholds', par l'American Gem and Filmmakers Literary Festival.

 

 

I-SRAELI SYNDROME

 

Published by l'Aleph in November 2013

 

2009 BOOK AWARDS www.indieexcellence.com

Multicultural Fiction Finalist

 

http://www.l-aleph.com/

formerly

Shalom Tower Syndrome was also a Finalist in the "Fiction & Literature"category at 

The National Best Books 2007 Awards.

It was also released in 2008 in Italian by Edizioni Fabio Croce

The novel is set in Israel. Alexis, who grew up in Rwanda-Burundi, is the son of an Italian Jew and a beautiful mulatto woman. As a young adult, he now queries the complexity of his roots: African-European and Judeo-Christian (his mother was raised a Catholic). The author guides the reader through a progression of exciting and complicated episodes involving Alexis. With his American wife he will vacation in Israel, and that stay will be a turning point in his life. The past catches up with him, exploding with the images of one man's life kaleidoscope: the memories of his African years, colliding with the more recent images of Milan, the smells, the colors and the primeval beauty of the black continent, mingling with those of Italy, as well as with the violent feelings Israel stirs in him. In that dense and haunting atmosphere he will meet young Israelis, a Palestinian and a German professor, the nephew of a Nazi soldier who died during WWII. Will Alexis finally reconcile himself with the conflicting parts of his identity? Will he feel more African or more European; more Catholic or more Jewish; or will his new environment help him find peace within himself, in spite of the country’s current dangers? The ‘mystery’ will unravel in the last chapter of this largely autobiographical novel. ‘There is a type of novel whose aim, as Jonathan Swift wrote of his intention behind Gulliver's Travels, is to “vex the world rather than divert it.” If it's a good and true novel then it will inevitably also serve both as a vexatious testament and a diverting read. Such is Albert Russo's I-sraeli Syndrome.

I-sraeli Syndrome is very much a biography of the soul, and as much as that of any latter-day Harry Haller, and Russo seems to have dredged in its pages the depths of his own being in order to have written it.’

Excerpt from James Baldwin's letter to the author, penned the year of his death: “I like your work very much indeed. It has a very gentle surface and a savage under-tow. You're a dangerous man.”

- Lettre de James Balwin à Albert Russo à propos de 'Sang Mêlé ':

 

“... J’aime votre écriture, car dans un style policé vous exprimez des sentiments violents, faisant éclater des vérités terrifiantes.”

 

- Voici ce que le grand écrivain contemporain, Edmund White, l'auteur de la magistrale biographie de Jean Genet et de romans à succès, dit de SANG MELE :

.

"Albert Russo a su recréer, à travers les joies et les angoisses d'un jeune métis congolais, les tensions de la vie moderne, qu'il s'agisse des relations entre noirs et blancs, entre le Tiers monde et nos sociétés technologiquement avancées, ou de la question toujours épineuse de l'homosexualité ...  SANG MELE est un roman que l'on ne lache pas, tel quel, il est envoûtant."

 

 

 

The Norwegian Public Schools have chosen Albert Russo's poem LOST IDENTITY for their students' (close to 2,000) final English examinations, before they can enter university.

 

LOST IDENTITY
 
tell me what to do
tell me where to go
am I losing my bearings?
why are you still
by my side?
I don’t recognize you anymore
I can’t remember
the good times
they seem to have dissolved
into a slipstream
give me your hand
I want to feel its pulse
I’m suddenly so cold inside
and terribly spare
because it is not you
I’ve become a stranger to
but myself

AU NATUREL / BORN NAKED

 

Portraits of the author, alone or accompanied, taken in Africa, The US, Europe, where he has resided, and around the world, in different stages of his life, with pictures of his abode.

Note: the quality of the photos is variable, this book being primarily a photographic history of the author rather than a professional photobook. Some of these pictures are erotic, some, very kitsch, and others frankly ridiculous, like life itself at times.

GLBT Non-Fiction - WINNER

 

GAYTUDE: A poetic journey around the world

 

by Albert Russo and Adam Donaldson Powell

 

http://www2.xlibris.com/bookstore/bookdisplay.aspx?bookid=35827

 

 

Gaytude is a collection of poetry that appears in English in the first half and then translated into French for the second half of the book. There is also a collection of pictures depicting homoerotic images throughout history as well as personal images of Albert Russo. The timelessness of these pictures is repeated as a theme within the elegant and often poignant poetry collected. The authors are two very accomplished writers who tackle a wide variety of subjects and themes that affect gay men with surprising depth and meaning. These topics will hit home especially for like-minded individuals but anyone with compassion will understand the beauty and heartache these issues bring to mind. Gaytude is a wonderful collection by two powerful authors that have offered thoughts on timeless themes.           RAINBOW REVIEW (USA)

 

 

Gaytude, bilingual poetry at its best, written, translated and adapted by Russo and Powell, also includes wonderful photographs by Russo.  TAJ MAHAL REVIEW (India)

 

 

A propos du livre précédent TOUR DU MONDE DE LA POESIE GAY, d'où est extrait GAYTUDE, nouveau livre bilingue, français-anglais, remanié et augmenté, avec, en plus, les poèmes d'Adam Donaldson Powell:

 

8 novembre 2008, par Jean-Louis Garac - www.polychromes.fr/spip.php?article271

 

Le Livre d’Albert Russo, paru fin 2004, sous le titre TOUR DU MONDE DE LA POESIE GAY, fait partie de ces livres à ne pas rater, il est également intemporel, poésie oblige, raison supplémentaire pour ne pas avoir peur d’en parler aujourd’hui même trois ans après sa parution.

 

La poésie gay à travers le monde ! Vaste programme s’il en est pour ce titre ambitieux ! Ces textes couvrent en effet tous les continents.

Le côté chant lyrique devant l’Aimé, son corps et tous ses attributs semble l’emporter sur tous les autres thèmes abordés : découverte de l’homosexualité, questionnement, incertitude, chant mélancolique, malaise d’être, envie d’homoparentalité, première découverte etc. La poésie est d’abord vécue comme un chant de bonheur, d’exaltation et d’exultation ! Le sentiment d’aimer est un souffle qui embrase l’objet du désir. La poésie célèbre et montre l’aimé comme le seul objet sur terre.

 

“c’est ton odeur

qui me rend fou

ce parfum de savane

et de poivre (...)” à  R.Liebaert

 

Je parlais dans un précédent article du ‘Blason du corps masculin’, ici il est en quelque sorte revendiqué, porté comme un étendard, idéalisé certes mais totalement charnel, d’une matérialité lumineuse et heureuse, but de la vie elle-même ! C’est un cantique des cantiques gay ou dans la grande tradition de la poésie grecque et latine.

 

‘Cuisses, âmes, mains, tout mon être pêle-mêle,

Mémoire, pieds, coeur, dos et l’oreille et le nez

Et la fressure, tout gueule une ritournelle,

Et trépigne un chahut dans leurs bras forcenés.’’ Verlaine

 

Il y a aussi des textes graves : sur de jeunes gays arrêtés et flagellés en Iran, sur l’impossibilité de parler et vivre sa vie et ses choix sexuels en Egypte et ailleurs, sur des pratiques de castration physique et mentale ! On ne saurait trop conseiller de méditer ces poèmes et d’écouter ces plaintes, ce ne sont point là de la rhétorique et de la poésie mais un sinistre vécu de la part de nos frères nés dans ces régions de mort sous la menace des milices morales. Ces chants doivent nous mobiliser pour leur Liberté et la nôtre.
