Cosmétique de l'ennemi : roman by Amélie Nothomb( Book )

Un autre roman-joute, roman-duel et roman-miroir comme les aime l'extravagante auteure. Le héros est victime d'un importun qui l'oblige à écouter son verbiage, puis ses plus intimes confidences.

Ce n'est pas le meilleur des neuf romans de l'auteure, mais Nothomb reste habile et assez drôle

Mercure : roman by Amélie Nothomb( Book )
66 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 371 libraries worldwide
Une île. Un vieil homme et une jeune fille y vivent à l'abri de tout reflet. Une infirmière survient pour soigner la jeune fille. Tandis que des relations de plus en plus confiantes se nouent entre elles, l'infirmière découvre les éléments d'un mystère et d'un drame qui tiennent à l'étrange loi que le vieil homme fait régner sur l'île. Depuis Hygiène de l'assassin, Amélie Nothomb a imposé son style : regard incisif, parfois impitoyable et cruel, d'un romantisme noir et dépouillé pour atteindre au plus secret de l'être. Avec Mercure, elle joue une fois encore avec brio sur l'éventail des passions fatales, de l'imposture et de l'absolu amoureux, du délicat passage entre illusion et vérité
