Trio / William Boyd

Boyd, William. Auteur

Edité par Penguin Books Ltd - 2020

A producer. A novelist. An actress. It is summer in 1968, the year of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. There are riots in Paris and the Vietnam War is out of control. While the world is reeling our three characters are involved in making a Swingin' Sixties movie in sunny Brighton. All are leading secret lives. Elfrida is drowning her writer's block in vodka; Talbot, coping with the daily dysfunction of making a film, is hiding something in a secret apartment; and the glamorous Anny is wondering why the CIA is suddenly so interested in her. But the show must go on and, as it does, the trio's private worlds begin to take over their public ones. Pressures build inexorably - someone's going to crack. Or maybe they all will. From one of Britain's best loved writers comes an exhilarating, tender novel that asks the vital questions: what makes life worth living? And what do you do if you find it isn't?
C'est l'été 1968, l'année des assassinats de Martin Luther King et de Robert Kennedy. Il y a des émeutes à Paris et la guerre du Vietnam est hors de contrôle. Alors que le monde est en ébullition, nos trois personnages participent à la réalisation d'un film des années 60 sous le soleil de Brighton. Ils mènent tous une vie secrète. Elfrida noie son bloc d'écrivaine dans la vodka ; Talbot, qui doit faire face aux dysfonctionnements quotidiens de la réalisation d'un film, cache quelque chose dans un appartement secret ; et la séduisante Anny se demande pourquoi la CIA s'intéresse soudainement à elle. Mais le spectacle doit continuer et, comme il le fait, les mondes privés du trio commencent à prendre le dessus sur leurs mondes publics. Les pressions s'accumulent inexorablement - quelqu'un va craquer. Ou peut-être qu'ils le feront tous. De l'un des écrivains britanniques les plus aimés naît un roman tendre et exaltant qui pose les questions essentielles : qu'est-ce qui fait que la vie vaut la peine d'être vécue ? Et que faire si on s'aperçoit que ce n'est pas le cas ?
