A day/a book with thrillers, intimacy, novels and attacks on November 13

This need and the rejection of others. It is this balance that we cannot find. Or like a fleeting illusion. This is what François d’Épenoux narrated in his books. These characters constantly rise and fall. Which didn’t really hit, but didn’t reach the top either. Which fell while we were walking. Just to move forward.

Here, a missing father. Sweet pleonasm. Lost in front of this son lost to live another life. In the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes. Lost in front of a son who rejects his father’s education, but also everything he represents, an entire generation. Lost and therefore aggressive. Until the bridges are cut. And then, life continues its cycle. Take away assurances from those who think they have them. The antagonists are driven to find each other. It is when we are stripped of everything that we realize our faults.

And in the end, nothing is resolved. The problems just moved. But we have made progress. This is what François d’Épenoux recounts, book after book, with the gentleness of those who know that struggle is useless.

It’s a hefty 128 pages. Very heavy. A direct testimony from a Bataclan survivor. With great modesty, as always in this kind of confessions, as in heavy ones draw again to Coco.

We live in moments of carelessness before tragedy. Done with the length of the reconstruction. It hurts. Physically, of course. Psychologically, of course, but also in the face of the almost inhuman coldness and awkwardness of the administration.

And the attacks? We revisit it, in snippets, in flashbacks. Certainly they still rise in the minds of the victims, years later. It is enough for the reader and unbearable for the survivors. Long after you put the comic down, you’ll be thinking about this look. That of this young man who stares at Sophie throughout the murder and smiles at her when the terrorists leave the room. And then, for no reason, someone came back and shot him. A bullet to the head, point-blank, while smiling at Sophie.
