Download E-books Le Livre de sable/El libro de arena PDF

Ce livre comporte treize nouvelles. Ce nombre est le fruit du hasard ou de los angeles fatalité - ici les deux mots sont strictement synonymes - et n'a rien de magique. Si de tous ces écrits je ne devais en conserver qu'un seul, je crois que je conserverais Le congrès, qui est à l. a. fois le plus autobiographique (celui qui fait le plus appel aux souvenirs) et le plus fantastique. J'ai voulu rester fidèle, dans ces exercices d'aveugle, à l'exemple de Wells, en conjuguant avec un kind uncomplicated, parfois presque oral, un argument very unlikely. Le lecteur curieux peut ajouter les noms de rapid et d'Edgar Allan Poe. Je n'écris pas pour une petite élite dont je n'ai treatment, ni pour cette entité platonique adulée qu'on surnomme los angeles Masse. Je ne crois pas à ces deux abstractions, chères au démagogue. J'écris pour moi, pour mes amis et pour adoucir le cours du temps.

A notice FROM THE AUTHOR

Bonjour cher reader,

Ever considering that eu historical past all started, we Brits were fortunately engaged in our nationwide hobby - demanding the French. And the prior couple of years have proven that this tense by no means stops. to provide simply 3 examples:

When French political star Dominique Strauss-Kahn was once arrested in long island, France's institution used to be outraged. It quickly emerged that sexual harassment used to be considered as a easy human correct through the country's male élite. (This subject matter supplied rather a lot first-class fabric that i made a decision to incorporate it within the plot of my soon-to-be released novel, The Merde Factor.)

You will locate all this, and lots more and plenty extra, in Annoying the French Encore! Because, for the French, the merde by no means ends.

Yours historically,
