SPBH Book Club Vol. III

@ De Middel, Cristina

N/A - AV0010


Ce petit livre est le troisième volume publié par Self Publish Be Happy dans le cadre de son "Book Club". C'est aussi le premier ouvrage présentant le travail de Cristina De Middel depuis le désormais célèbre Afronauts qui fit sensation en 2012 et est désormais extrêmement recherché, paraissant ci et là à des prix stratosphériques !


Dans ce livre De Middel nous propose une vision de New York bien particulière, dans des tons rouges et sombres, où les êtres humains sont étonnament rares et ont des comportements inattendus, voire bizarres. On se demande quelle est cette ville que De Middel nous montre : New York apparaît quelque peu hostile, avec ses allées sombres, ses grillages, ses murs infinis, et les personnages essayent de la conquérir, harnachés, casqués, ils se démènent pour y trouver leur place sans devenir fous...


Toute autre interprétation est possible, pour ce livre-labyrinthe aux messages plus ou moins cachés et aux codes à déchiffrer !
