Download Du bleu sous le gris: Roman (French Edition) by Edith Weibel PDF

By Edith Weibel

S'éloigner pour mieux se retrouver ?

Yolaine et Nicolas se sont aimés puis, insidieusement, leur amour s'est terni. los angeles rouille du quotidien sans doute, mais aussi les non-dits d'un goé trop lourd. Entre eux, le désir ne s'écrit plus que sur une web page ancienne qu'ils hésitent à refermer. Un reste de tendresse les retient, qu'ils ne parviennent plus à se dire. Le second est venu pour eux de se séparer, le temps de se réinventer un nouveau chemin, avec peut-être l'espoir de mieux se retrouver un jour…

Un roman à deux voix. Deux voix empruntées journey à journey par Édith Weibel pour explorer d'une écriture extrêmement tremendous et juste les moindres nuances de l. a. relation à soi et à l'autre.

EXTRAIT

Au début de leur histoire, il y a cinq ans, une éternité, elle lui avait dit : "Je t'aimerai toujours". Sûre d'elle, mais sans ardour. Et plus tard, lorsqu'il fut évident qu'elle s'était trompée : "De toute façon, chacun porte en soi los angeles nostalgie d'un amour idéal." Sans regrets, apparemment. Yolaine pratique l'indifférence comme une forme de gratitude à l'égard des êtres qui ne l'encombrent pas.
Maintenant, par exemple, au bout d'une journée d'absence, l'a-t-elle seulement regardé ? Rien ne lui semble plus vital que ce coup de téléphone :
– Tout à fait inattendu !

Et de donner ce que l’on a soi-même reçu à travers ses lectures, l. a. magie d’une respiratory plus considerable, et même poétique jusqu’à l’étrange, pour vivre plus, beaucoup plus que sa petite vie.
