Et puis cela arrive. Un message en majuscules qui défile sur l’écran plat. Et l. a. charmante chronique devient le manuel de l’impossible survie. journey à journey narrateurs, protagonistes, bourreaux ou victimes, Caroline, Bekim, Mei et les autres seront poussés au bout d’eux-mêmes, avec une troublante maestria.

EXTRAIT

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

LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS los angeles JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS los angeles JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS…

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 los angeles major sans comprendre remark j’ai pu passer l. a. nuit dans ce lit sans rien remarquer. Stéphane est brûlant, ses yeux brillent dans l. a. pénombre de los angeles 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 moveable tout rafistolé, compose encore le one hundred forty four. Rien. J’appelle mon père, il vit très loin, au Canada, mais c’est le seul numéro dont je parviens à me memento. 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.

CE QU'EN PENSE los angeles CRITIQUE

« 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 l. a. fragilité des règles civilisées qui régissent les rapports humains : c’est avec une rapidité confondante que l’homme, confronté à l. a. peur, devient sans complexes un loup pour l’homme. » (Anne Pitteloud, Le Courrier).

A PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR

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.

" They advance further into the Coffee Shop, pass a group of three- and four-yearold children under the supervision of an aged vessel with a cleft palate and fourteen fingers and come to a halt under an archway giving access to a second dining room only slightly smaller than the first Over the shot we hear the sound of a chorus of youthful voices reciting in unison the opening phrases of the Shorter Catechism.

Well, what are the facts? The first is a fact of experience and observation -- namely that nobody wants to suffer, wants to be degraded, wants to be maimed or killed. The second is a fact of history -- the fact that, at a certain epoch, the overwhelming majority of human beings accepted beliefs and adopted courses of action that could not possibly result in anything but universal suffering, general degradation and wholesale destruction. " There is a silence. "Of course," Dr. " "But not so plausibly, not nearly so simply," insists the Arch-Vicar.

Then one of the Postulants takes the child out of her arms and holds it up before the Patriarch. Close shot of a characteristic product of progressive technology -- a harelipped, Mongolian idiot.
