Un meurtrier anonyme, un poète vengeur, un parfumeur amoureux, un antiquaire combattant, un enfant silencieux, un milliardaire misanthrope.
Les personnages de ces six histoires ont un point commun : leur vie intérieure est bien plus exaltante que leur vie quotidienne. Et leur part d’ombre n’est rien en comparaison de leur part lumineuse.
Une vérité que l’on tait, un exploi

Once again, after finishing Benacquista's book, I could not help sighing...of satisfaction (of course). Time after time, after reading one of his books, I forbid myself to start immediately another book, as I still want to savor for a few more days the amazing moments this author offered me. What else can I say... I simply love this author and once again, he has not disappointed me with these 6 short stories.
And what is there to love? Of course, I could name his writing style, sharp, full of hu

This collection contains 6 short stories, all centered around characters you are unlikely to meet in real life, like a child who feigns an autistic behavior in order to save his parents' marriage, or an extremely successful song-writer who decides to open an account in a bank run by a guy who beat him badly when they were in primary school. Although there's something forced in each of the stories, they are extremely readable and even have an oddly poetic quality to them. Benacquista has his own ...more

sei novelle, sei meravigliose novelle. Meurtre dans la rue des Cascades, un tetto una bottiglia di troppo una morte, la creazione di una vita, forse con un senso, ed un epilogo dove il soggetto cerca la sua notorietà dei dieci minuti. L'origine des fonds, un cinquantenne si riappropria(?) con un poco di scherno del proprio sapersi amare. Le parfum des femmes strizzando forse l'occhio ad un profumo di donna italiano, con le rouge, le rose et le fuchsia, ci porta sull'orologio che scorre ...more

6 histoires courtes assez longues à lire. Peu crédible, nous amène vers rien à la fin de chaque histoire. sentiment d'avoir perdu mon temps à lire ce livre. J'étais intriguée par l'histoire du meurtrier (la 1re histoire), c'est surement celle qui m'a le plus déçue.

D'un ennui! Des longueurs incroyables pour des nouvelles. Trame narrative générique. Tellement de lieux communs. Il y a des livres plus intéressants à lire et la vie est courte.

Trop inégal, des bonnes nouvelles et d'autres trop prévisibles/sans enjeu particulier. Mais toujours fan de l'écriture de l'auteur.

Une écriture soigneusement fignolée pour ces 6 nouvelles. Toujours un bonheur que de lire une œuvre de Benacquista!
