Effroyables Jardins (Strange Gardens)

By Quint, Michel

Paris, France: Editions Joelle Losfeld, 2000. A3 - A French language edition trade paperback book in very good condition. A tight, clean, sound copy in color illustrated white wraps with minor overall shelf wear with some rubbing and light soiling of the covers and some very slight edge wear of the covers. The author dedicated 'Effroyables Jardins' (Strange Gardens), this bright, moving and metaphorical anti-war short story to the memory of his grandfather, a veteran of Verdun, and to his father, a former fighter in the French resistance. They opened wide their memory of the horror of war and is yet learned German, because they felt that Manichaeism in history is nonsense. A sequel to 'Effroyables Jardins' (Strange Gardens) was published in 2002 by Editions Joelle Losfeld under the title 'Aimer à peine' (Just Love). Michel Quint was born in 1949.

L'auteur dédie ce court texte lumineux, émouvant et métaphorique à la mémoire de son grand-père, ancien combattant à Verdun et de son père, ancien résistant. Ils ont ouvert en grand leur mémoire de l'horreur de la guerre et fait pourtant apprendre la langue allemande, parce qu'ils sentaient bien que le manichéisme en histoire est une sottise. La deuxième volet d'Effroyables Jardins a paru en 2002 aux éditions Joëlle Losfeld sous le titre 'Aimer à peine'. Michel Quint est né en 1949. Il a publié une vingtaine d'ouvrages (romans noirs et nouvelles) parmi lesquels 'Sanctus', 'Cake-Walk' et 'Lundi perdu' publiés chez Rivages noir.
