Un microcosme de figures humaines réaliste et saisissant


J’allume l’ordinateur, clique sur le navigateur qui me relie au reste du monde. Rien. l. a. connexion net n’est pas disponible. Je me tourne alors vers los angeles télévision, il me faut cinq bonnes mins pour retrouver l. a. télécommande, pourtant sagement à sa position dans le tiroir de los angeles desk basse. Sur un fond noir, un message défile. Je zappe frénétiquement, mais les mots glissent, toujours identiques, sur l’écran :


Je tombe comme une masse dans le canapé, mes pensées se bousculent, incohérentes. Il n’est que six heures du matin, mais je suis complètement épuisée, comme vidée par une journée beaucoup trop pleine. J’entends alors Stéphane, il semble se plaindre – ce qu’il ne fait jamais –, il m’appelle. Quelque selected de froid creuse un trou dans mon corps.
Le drap est trempé de sueur, j’y passe l. a. major sans comprendre remark j’ai pu passer los angeles nuit dans ce lit sans rien remarquer. Stéphane est brûlant, ses yeux brillent dans los angeles pénombre de l. a. chambre et ses longs cheveux sont collés à son crâne. Il tremble. Mais il me sourit, me demande un peu d’aspirine. Je lui en promets avant de me précipiter sur mon téléphone. J’appelle le a hundred and forty four. Il n’y a pas de tonalité, pas de répondeur, rien. Je fouille los angeles veste de Stéphane, cherche son vieux transportable tout rafistolé, compose encore le a hundred and forty four. Rien. J’appelle mon père, il vit très loin, au Canada, mais c’est le seul numéro dont je parviens à me keepsake. Mais je n’entends rien. J’essaie alors tous les numéros que je trouve dans los angeles liste des contacts de Stéphane – pas plus d’une dizaine –, mais ça ne sonne jamais et je reste impuissante avec un stupide morceau de plastique contre mon oreille glacée.


« Se pose los angeles query de los angeles survie, dans un monde rendu à sa sauvagerie, chacun oscillant sur le fil entre égoïsme, méfiance et nécessaire soutien mutuel. Lolvé Tillmanns va au bout de son exploration d’une société soudain livrée à elle-même, redevenue jungle, et pointe los angeles fragilité des règles civilisées qui régissent les rapports humains : c’est avec une rapidité confondante que l’homme, confronté à los angeles peur, devient sans complexes un loup pour l’homme. » (Anne Pitteloud, Le Courrier).


Née en 1982, à Morges, Lolvé Tillmanns a décidé un beau jour de quitter le advertising pour los angeles littérature. Nul doute qu’elle a fait là un choix judicieux.

Sample text

Through all the generations that followed, Taggart Transcontinental was one of the few railroads that never went bankrupt and the only one whose controlling stock remained in the hands of the founder's descendants. In his lifetime, the name "Nat Taggart" was not famous, but notorious; it was repeated, not in homage, but in resentful curiosity; and if anyone admired him, it was as one admires a successful bandit. Yet no penny of his wealth had been obtained by force or fraud; he was guilty of nothing, except that he earned his own fortune and never forgot that it was his.

Is pretty measly service, it seems to me, and what a train! You must have inherited those coaches from your great-grandfather, and he must have used them pretty hard. ' "That's what I said, wood-burning. I never saw one before, except in photographs. What museum did you drag it out of? " "Yes, of course I knew it," said Taggart hastily. "It was just . . " "Of course," said Boyle. "Delays can't be helped. It's the strangest train I ever rode on, though. " Within a few minutes, they noticed that Taggart had become silent.

It all depends," James Taggart answered slowly, "on knowing the people who make it possible. . " Dagny Taggart was nine years old when she decided that she would run the Taggart Transcontinental Railroad some day. She stated it to herself when she stood alone between the rails, looking at the two straight lines of steel that went off into the distance and met in a single point. What she felt was an arrogant pleasure at the way the track cut through the woods: it did not belong in the midst of ancient trees, among green branches that hung down to meet green brush and the lonely spears of wild flowers—but there it was.
