“Mi vergognavo ad essere affascinato da quella storia e da quel criminale mostruoso, Jean-Claude Romand. A distanza di tempo, credo che ciò che avevo tanta paura di condividere con lui lo condivido, lo condividiamo lui e io, con la maggior parte della gente, anche se per fortuna la maggior parte della gente non arriva al punto di mentire per vent’anni e poi sterminare tutta la famiglia. Penso che anche le persone più sicure di sé percepiscano con angoscia lo scarto che esiste fra l’immagine di sé che bene o male cercano di dare agli altri e quella che hanno di loro stesse nei momenti d’insonnia, o di depressione, quando tutto vacilla e si prendono la testa fra le mani, sedute sulla tazza del cesso. In ciascuno di noi c’è una finestra spalancata sull’inferno; cerchiamo di starne alla larga il più possibile, e io, per una mia precisa scelta, ho passato a quella finestra, ipnotizzato, sette anni della mia vita.”
Emmanuel Carrère, Le Royaume

“La phrase : "Je suis homme et rien de ce qui est humain ne m'est étranger" me semble être, sinon le dernier mot de la sagesse, en tout cas l'un des plus profonds, et ce que j'aime chez Etienne, c'est qu'il le prend à la lettre, c'est même ce qui selon moi lui donne le droit d'être juge. De ce qui le fait humain, pauvre, faillible, magnifique, il ne veut rien retrancher, et c'est aussi pourquoi dans le récit de sa vie je ne veux, moi, rien couper.”
Emmanuel Carrère, D'autres vies que la mienne

“« Boris Nicolaïevitch, la démocratie, c'est bien, mais sans élections, c'est plus sûr »”
Emmanuel Carrère, Limonov
