EXTRAIT

J’allume l’ordinateur, clique sur le navigateur qui me relie au reste du monde. Rien. los angeles connexion web n’est pas disponible. Je me tourne alors vers los angeles télévision, il me faut cinq bonnes mins pour retrouver los angeles télécommande, pourtant sagement à sa position dans le tiroir de los angeles desk basse. Sur un fond noir, un message défile. Je zappe frénétiquement, mais les mots glissent, toujours identiques, sur l’écran :

LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS los angeles JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS los angeles JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS…

Je tombe comme une masse dans le canapé, mes pensées se bousculent, incohérentes. Il n’est que six heures du matin, mais je suis complètement épuisée, comme vidée par une journée beaucoup trop pleine. J’entends alors Stéphane, il semble se plaindre – ce qu’il ne fait jamais –, il m’appelle. Quelque selected de froid creuse un trou dans mon corps.
Le drap est trempé de sueur, j’y passe l. a. major sans comprendre remark j’ai pu passer l. a. nuit dans ce lit sans rien remarquer. Stéphane est brûlant, ses yeux brillent dans l. a. pénombre de los angeles chambre et ses longs cheveux sont collés à son crâne. Il tremble. Mais il me sourit, me demande un peu d’aspirine. Je lui en promets avant de me précipiter sur mon téléphone. J’appelle le one hundred forty four. Il n’y a pas de tonalité, pas de répondeur, rien. Je fouille l. a. veste de Stéphane, cherche son vieux transportable tout rafistolé, compose encore le a hundred and forty four. Rien. J’appelle mon père, il vit très loin, au Canada, mais c’est le seul numéro dont je parviens à me keepsake. Mais je n’entends rien. J’essaie alors tous les numéros que je trouve dans l. a. liste des contacts de Stéphane – pas plus d’une dizaine –, mais ça ne sonne jamais et je reste impuissante avec un stupide morceau de plastique contre mon oreille glacée.

CE QU'EN PENSE l. a. CRITIQUE

« Se pose l. a. query de los angeles survie, dans un monde rendu à sa sauvagerie, chacun oscillant sur le fil entre égoïsme, méfiance et nécessaire soutien mutuel. Lolvé Tillmanns va au bout de son exploration d’une société soudain livrée à elle-même, redevenue jungle, et pointe l. a. fragilité des règles civilisées qui régissent les rapports humains : c’est avec une rapidité confondante que l’homme, confronté à los angeles peur, devient sans complexes un loup pour l’homme. » (Anne Pitteloud, Le Courrier).

A PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR

Née en 1982, à Morges, Lolvé Tillmanns a décidé un beau jour de quitter le advertising pour los angeles littérature. Nul doute qu’elle a fait là un choix judicieux.

You’re okay here, right? I told my mom I’d visit tonight, so I have to go soon. ” I pull up straighter. “Really? When? ” “A little after ten, at Millennium Park. ” He smirks. ” CHAPTER FOUR TOBIAS MY MOTHER ALWAYS sits on the edges of things—chairs, ledges, tables—as if she suspects she will have to flee in an instant. This time it’s Jeanine’s old desk in Erudite headquarters that she sits on the edge of, her toes balanced on the floor and the cloudy light of the city glowing behind her. She is a woman of muscle twisted around bone.

I didn’t know what was in that file. I trusted Tris’s judgment more than my own. ” I thought telling Evelyn that I broke up with Tris would make it easier for my mother to trust me, and I was right—she has been warmer, more open, ever since I told that lie. ” Evelyn says. “What do you think now? ” I know what she wants me to say—that I see no reason to join the outside world—but I’m not a good liar, so instead I select a part of the truth. “I’m afraid of it,” I say. ” She considers me for a moment, biting the inside of her cheek.

She leans in close to my face, and I see for the first time how old she is; I see the lines that frame her eyes and mouth, and the unhealthy pallor she wears from years of eating far too little. Still, she is handsome like her son. Nearstarvation could not take that. “I am doing something about it. I am making a new world,” she says, and her voice gets even quieter, so that I can barely hear her. “I was Abnegation. I have known the truth far longer than you have, Beatrice Prior. ” I smile a little.
