Début et fin d'un expresso : roman by Alexandre Laferrière( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Culture des marges. Un premier roman dont la liberté de ton signale un esprit sarcastique qui ne s'en laisse pas conter, tout en étant capable de rendre hommage à de bons auteurs. De brèves séquences (90) pour décrire un milieu où cohabitent "strip-teaseuse vannée" (Beauté), hippie balafré, etc., et le héros amoureux de Beauté ("Beauté est pure, d'elle naît chaque jour l'amour", p. 164) mais qui "vogue dans [sa] vie, comme complètement éteint" (p. 208). L'auteur, originaire de l'est de Montréal, autodidacte (les voyages forment la jeunesse) a découvert par l'écriture "la possibilité d'apprivoiser ses vertiges". Très inégal. Des lueurs. Sous la désinvolture de génération, la "vulgarité" revendiquée, une certaine dose de réflexion: ("le véritable passé de l'homme est la logique", p. 127, etc.). R. Martel est beaucoup plus sévère: il n'a pas du tout aimé ce "collage de scènes répétitives" et il justifie parfaitement son point de vue. [SDM]
