Les quatre cavaliers: Livre I : Apocalypse orange (French by Nicolas Bourgoin

By Nicolas Bourgoin

François essayant de rassembler les pièces d’un étrange puzzle est désormais face à un énorme kaléidoscope aux couleurs changeantes qui le fascinent. Il va traverser comme un passe-muraille ce miroir où se reflète un Nouveau Monde, un monde devenu totalement communiste. Et tandis qu’il flotte ébloui par le chatoiement des réverbérations, une autre vie s’est organisée, construite autour de lui. Durant les three livres de cette longue et passionnante épopée « Les quatre cavaliers », Nicolas Bourgoin ne prétend en aucun cas faire l’apologie d’une quelconque idéologie, il désire seulement nous transporter et transposer ces rails, fameuses parallèles intangibles du temps qui passe. Dans ce livre 1, au titre évocateur, il s’agit de « faire avaler » des pilules orange aux effets imprévisibles...
Un greatest opus de cette uchronie, style littéraire qui repose sur le principe de l. a. réécriture de l'Histoire à partir de l. a. amendment d'un événement du passé, nous met dangereusement l’eau à los angeles bouche...
François arrivera-t-il à déjouer l’ironie des histoires, de cette Histoire ? Reverra-t-il Natacha ? Et surtout qui est-elle ? Boris a-t-il disparu ? Pauline, Françoise resteront-elles de tendres ou cruelles héroïnes de l’érotisme ? Où sont les issues fixes, les centres de gravité auxquels se raccrocher ?
Le titre du livre 2 « le Messager » nous rassure... comme un enfant apaisé (momentanément) par son père avant de s’endormir. Nicolas Bourgoin nous le promet, lui, si on est sage vehicle il a ce expertise inimaginable de nous suspendre dans le vide pour mieux nous rattraper. Un talent... double au risque de nous débusquer, nous infiltrer pour nous servir ou nous perdre... Extrait : Natacha referma le livre et le lui tendit. Le dessin de couverture représentait quatre cavaliers vus de trois-quarts, côte à côte et légèrement décalés l’un par rapport à l’autre, regardant tous dans los angeles même course. Le trait, nettement stylisé, évoquait le réalisme socialiste. Peut-être une allusion détournée aux quatre classiques du marxisme-léninisme, Marx, Engels, Lénine et Staline ? Ce serait plutôt audacieux et en tout cas peu possible : le livre n’aurait pas survécu au couperet de l. a. censure d’État.
- Les quatre cavaliers, drôle de titre, déclara François en rendant le livre. Cela a un rapport avec l’Apocalypse ?
- Je ne sais pas, je ne l’ai pas encore fini. Mais il est bien, tu veux que je te le prête ? J’ai encore deux semaines avant de le rendre et je l’aurai...
