Les plus belles filles lisent du Asimov

By Simon Charles

Dehors

C’est dur de faire l’épicerie quand on a envie de rien. Ça le fait exprès : tout goûte le métal et quelqu’un nous dit d’écrire sur le bonheur. Quelqu’un d’autre nous dit d’écrire ce qu’on veut et on se retrouve sur un banc de parc; comme si les plus belles filles allaient arriver toutes seules. Crisse d’achalants. Faut lire du Asimov de temps en temps.

Au départ, c’était une histoire classique. Peine d’amour, remise en query, dépression, bref, toute une gamme de sentiments déjà vus, déjà lus. C’est là que Simon Charles intervient : l’auteur, en alliant versification, narration et jeux langagiers, remet à neuf le récit sentimental dans une forme designated et dépouillée qui frappe et émeut. Aussi réconfortant que stimulant, le livre de Charles vous fera (enfin) redécouvrir les joies d’une histoire d’amour avortée.
