Summary
  • "... Nissim, oscille entre inertie et agitation, espoir et désespoir. Écrivain par hasard, menteur par jeu, voyageur par lâcheté, son drame est d'être incapable de choisir. Tout à la fois auteur d'une oeuvre qui finit par le dévorer et antihéros de sa propre vie, Nissim cherche par tous les moyens à combler un vide. Avec Alba, il croit avoir trouvé une partenaire de rêverie. Mais celle-ci se révèle insaisissable, fuyante, échappant constamment au rôle qu'il entend lui faire jouer. Que ce soit en Espagne, où il cohabite avec un étrange sosie de Dalí qui rêve de Ceauşescu, ou à Paris, partout Nissim cherche à diriger sa vie comme on mettrait en scène une pièce de théâtre. Sans se faire d'illusions, il écrit pour essayer de sauver son couple, s'enfonce dans le mensonge. Il en est réduit à craindre des ombres, à se confronter aux spectres de son passé. Mais quand on n'arrive plus à croire en rien, l'imagination ne constitue-t-elle pas un dernier refuge?"--Page 4 of cover
  • With Schelling's point , David Rochefort continues his study of a disoriented contemporary generation. His character, Nissim, oscillates between inertia and agitation, hope and despair. Writer by chance, liar by game, traveler by cowardice, his drama is to be unable to choose. At the same time author of a work that ends up devouring him and antihero of his own life, Nissim seeks by all means to fill a void. With Alba, he thinks he has found a dream partner. But this one proves elusive, fleeing, constantly escaping the role he intends to make him play. Whether in Spain, where he lives with a strange duo from Dalí who dreams of Ceausescu, or in Paris, everywhere Nissim seeks to direct his life as one would stage a play. Without making any illusions, he writes to try to save his couple, sinks into the lie. He is reduced to fear of shadows, to confront the specters of his past...Translation of part of page 4 by Gallimard http://www.gallimard.fr/Catalogue/GALLIMARD/Blanche/Le-point-de-Schelling
