33, rue des grottes: La survie dans un monde rendu à sa by Lolvé Tillmanns

By Lolvé Tillmanns

Genève, entre grands rêves et petites fêlures, l. a. survie deviendra l'objectif numéro un.

Genève, un immeuble tranquille. De l. a. cave à l’attique, des univers se côtoient, dans ce quartier des Grottes où les êtres se mélangent, semble-t-il mieux qu’ailleurs, et où rien de grave ne saurait arriver.

Et puis cela arrive. Un message en majuscules qui défile sur l’écran plat. Et l. a. charmante chronique devient le manuel de l’impossible survie. travel à travel narrateurs, protagonistes, bourreaux ou victimes, Caroline, Bekim, Mei et les autres seront poussés au bout d’eux-mêmes, avec une troublante maestria.

Un microcosme de figures humaines réaliste et saisissant


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


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 los angeles major sans comprendre remark j’ai pu passer los angeles nuit dans ce lit sans rien remarquer. Stéphane est brûlant, ses yeux brillent dans los angeles pénombre de l. a. 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 a hundred and forty four. Il n’y a pas de tonalité, pas de répondeur, rien. Je fouille l. a. veste de Stéphane, cherche son vieux moveable tout rafistolé, compose encore le one hundred forty four. Rien. J’appelle mon père, il vit très loin, au Canada, mais c’est le seul numéro dont je parviens à me memento. 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.


« Se pose l. a. query de l. a. 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 los angeles 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).


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

Example text

Her life in smok e a n d mirrors 47 District 12 has been a kind of boot camp, or prep school, training her not just with the physical skills of a hunter, but also teaching her to be able to mask her feelings, to live inside a necessary lie—just to survive. So in many ways Katniss is well prepared for the Games. The skills that allow her to hunt successfully for food can be easily if not comfortably applied to killing her fellow tributes. And she intuits immediately that a tribute who—even at the reapings— seems weak and fearful, like a frightened rabbit or deer, will go down fast in the arena.

Rees Imagine living in a world where you can’t trust anyone—not your neighbors, not your friends—and you’re never alone or safe—not in the woods, not in your home, not at your job. Or just think about what it would be like to grow up in Panem. In such a world, the only way to survive is by learning to see through the deceptions that surround you and figure out how to use them to your own advantage. Here, Elizabeth M. Rees takes us through the layers of smoke and mirrors in the Hunger Games series and the challenges Katniss faces in her pursuit of truth.

Even the Capitol’s Peacekeepers enjoy the illegal fare. Both the thriving black market and the dysfunctional perimeter fence benefit everyone who lives in the Seam—rich or poor. The black market allows those who are better off access to delicacies available only to the Capitol’s residents and lets enterprising poor like Katniss survive. To acknowledge the fence is broken or that illicit trading is going on is to invite a crackdown from the Capitol, and District 12 is used to being left alone. District 12 is so impoverished that until Katniss’ and Peeta’s return as victors, the Capitol has little interest in the local law enforcement.
