By Françoise Sagan
Au printemps de 1832, flowers, fille d’émigrés, née, élevée, mariée et devenue brutalement orpheline et veuve en Angleterre, arrive un beau jour à Jarnac pour y rouvrir Margelasse, le château de sa famille. Personne ne l’a aperçue encore dans los angeles région quand Me Nicolas Lomont, trente ans, notaire, met son cheval en course vers Margelasse.
L’histoire begin. Au début, c’est une tranquille histoire d’amour, puis vient le drame plein de bruit, de fureur, de passion.
Le récit est tout entier rapporté par Nicolas, trente ans plus tard. Vieux, solitaire, peu porté à los angeles littérature, il ne sait pas trop ce qui le pousse à saisir un cahier et tracer ces mots : « Si un lecteur découvre un jour ces pages… », mais il proceed. Me Lomont, bien qu’il décide plusieurs fois d’arrêter, de jeter son manuscrit au feu, se prend au jeu. Il dira tout. Il se surprend même à se griser de mots, à ressusciter d’une word ses amis morts, son ennemie disparue.
Autant que pour l’histoire elle-même, violente, insolite, éperdue, on se passionne pour ce miracle qui transforme peu à peu chaque soir, quelques années avant 1870, un vieux notaire de province en un écrivain d’abord sage et classique, puis de plus en plus fougueux, débridé, lyrique… en un mot romantique.
Un livre à half dans l’univers de Sagan, proche de Stendhal ou Maupassant.
