Text from the back cover :
"My childhood is bounded by a few hills, a few meadows, a forest, a village: a countryside as a playground ... More than the children of a country, we were the children of a landscape.
A handful of friends in the heart of a huge territory. Young dogs peeing in the grass and to the wind to mark their territory. Huts, hiding places, our secrets, fields, the darkness of a church and the silence of the forest, the mad races, the lowing of herds. This childhood wrote my relation to space and returning to these places, it is to be a kid once again, eternal, inscribed in the lines of the earth.
-- Julien Coquentin "
After two books already published by lamaindonne, the first one about Montreal, the second one about New York, Julien Coquentin is offering us a view into the countryside of his childhood, he is literally taking us, or sending us there... An atmosphere somewhere in-between Alain-Fournier's classic novel Le grand Meaulnes and Christophe Agou's great series In the Face of Silence; a beautiful book.
