by Dany Laferriere

L'adolescence, la jeunesse sont les armes les plus dangereuses et les plus inoffensives des villes. Becky et flora, moïra, missie, anabelle, nancy, judith, niki, rebecca, clémentine, voici quelques silhouettes, regards, corps qui vibrent dans ce roman, dans les bars, les appartements, les répétitions d'une pièce de théâtre. ils y seront tour à tour le chasseur ou la proie, mais toujours au coeur même d'une séduction vécue comme une chasse. Dans un port-au-prince qui ressemblait à n'importe quelle ville américaine, ni plus ni moins exotique, la jeunesse aux dents longues expérimente le désir. La sensualité permet toutes les transgressions, que le noir s'associe au blanc, que la riche désire le pauvre. Avec son style si personnel fait d'ironie mordante, de poésie, dany laferrière signe ici une nouvelle toile, le vaste tableau - aux couleurs dites naïves des peintres haïtiens - qui va de la traque amoureuse à la dévoration orgasmique.
