By Jean-François Beauchemin
Du fond de sa cellule, un condamné à mort écrit les quelques pages qu’il souhaite laisser en témoignage. D’abord aux prises avec l. a. justice des hommes, c’est aux lois de sa propre lucidité qu’il se soumet à présent. L’essentiel lui apparaît bientôt : cette legal de pierre où on l’a mis n’est rien. C’est à une autre cage qu’il réfléchit, plus profonde et plus vague, dans laquelle s’enferment eux-mêmes ses frères humains, et qui est l’équivalent d’un « ajournement du bonheur », un « désaveu envers l. a. terre qui porte les hommes ».
Car ce roman allégorique, où résonne une voix intime, mais faisant alliance avec l’universel, est aussi une réflexion sur l. a. position de l’homme dans le monde. C’est peut-être surtout, par l’évocation d’une certaine determine qui le traverse de bout en bout, une authentique histoire d’amour.
Par le jeu de los angeles fiction, Jean-François Beauchemin commet un crime grave qui le repousse dans ses derniers retranchements. Le lecteur, en quelque sorte invité à entrer dans l’esprit de l’auteur, partage avec lui le fruit de sa réflexion. Un livre d’une grande strength, un trait de plus donné à l’étonnant portrait du style humain patiemment élaboré depuis quelques années.
