EXTRAIT

La première fois que je l’ai vue, c’était à los angeles télé. Un petit samedi matin sans envergure.
Un reportage de plus sur une fermeture d’entreprise. Licenciements massifs, protestations épuisées sur des visages en état de choc. los angeles sarabande habituelle, quotidienne, Tony n’y faisait plus cognizance. representation parfaite de cette guerre feutrée qui se menait dans des milliers d’entreprises, dans des thousands de cerveaux. Un effondrement au ralenti d’un mode de vie, en accéléré d’un équilibre psychological. Les gens tombaient comme des mouches. Périmés comme des cartes perforées.
Une caméra subjective se promenait parmi cette petite foule en colère, au milieu des pancartes de revendications et des drapeaux syndicaux. Une major masculine tendait un micro – los angeles même personne portait los angeles caméra, le micro, et posait les questions. Encore un merveilleux exemple d’économie, et tant pis pour vous si vous étiez malade devant ces pictures versatiles – et soudain elle apparut plein cadre.

EXTRAIT

Je ne veux pas être une femme mais los angeles femme de. En finir avec les silhouettes indifférentes aux rythmes de mes soirs, ces touristes de ma vie. Oublier le médiocre croassement de leurs excuses, mes hanches soumises à los angeles soupe populaire, les plantations de leurs silences comme autant d’allées de platanes impeccablement taillés. Des sexes sans noms qui clôturent les échanges par los angeles fuite, des flots de pulsations étriquées qui pratiquent à peine los angeles géométrie de mon lit, je suis fatiguée.

CE QU’EN PENSE los angeles CRITIQUE

- « Deux femmes et un homme, une histoire d’amour qui débute pendant qu’une autre s’achève. Un tel schéma narratif est bien sûr connu et surexploité dans los angeles littérature ou toute autre forme d’art. Pourtant, Catherine van Zeeland parvient à se l’approprier à son journey et à en proposer une version très réussie. Bien plus qu’une belle histoire d’amours, Infid’elles est une somme de réflexions. Un roman d’amour qui s'inscrit intelligemment dans le style. » Femme actuelle

- « Mots fluides pour sujet lourd. Ou remark Catherine van Zeeland, une politicienne CDH, se révèle à l’écriture. Et inversement... » La Dernière Heure

- « En ces pages au cœur desquelles se côtoieront liberté, mensonges, introspection, nostalgie, peurs, désirs, où il se remettra en mémoire que le suggestion même de crise englobe "danger et opportunité", le lecteur naviguera sur une mer à los angeles fluidité, à los angeles poésie, certaines. » Bernard Guy
