I am seventeen.

There are a bunch of us in a non-descript classroom within an office building in the industrial northeast.

It is our final day of Transcendental Meditation class and we are about to receive our “mantra.”

One of the mentors, an old man (probably thirty years or less) leans over and whispers in my ear a short, unfamiliar sound.

We are to fixate on it, repeat it, over and again, for eighteen minutes. We are instructed to rid ourselves of all other thoughts that attempt to creep in, and

Une histoire triste qui répresente fidèlement les conflits de l'être humain avec ses égos et le désespoir de lui envers le monde. Centré sur le scénario parisien mais toujours actuel dans les quatre coins du monde, là où l'argent et l'égo sont devant la bonté, l'amour et le respect. Première fois à lire ce Balzac sublime dans ses descriptions. ...more

et autres scènes de la vie privée:

L'interdiction

Le 1 er tome de la collection éditée par Le monde.

p.5 de la préface de Michel Litchlé, "Pour Balzac":

"Qu'on le veuille ou non, Balzac est le plus grand des romanciers français."

Le plus grand, moi, je ne sais pas mais en le(re) lisant attentivement, c'est vraiment bien : les descriptions de personnages, de Paris, les dialogues, l'atmosphère etc.

Tout est si bien rendu.

Pour un livre qu'on m'a imposé de lire, ce qu'habituellement je déteste, Le Père Goriot était surprenamment intéressant.
A lire absolument pour toute personne passant le Bac (ça aide pas mal pour les citations) et pour tout amateur de Balzac.
