Tant de Silences..!

Au delà des frontières et des croyances, trois destins se croisent et sont marqués par le silence... Les premiers, tournant le dos à la révolution, traversent l’Iran à pied. Les seconds, concierges dans un couvent, sont témoins d’étranges phénomènes. Les derniers se préparent au deuil. Il n’existe aucune raison pour que ces destins se croisent et pourtant ! Une écriture sobre, élégante, rattrapée par l’actualité. Ce roman à l'écriture poétique aborde brillamment les thèmes universels que sont la mort, l'immigration et la religion ! EXTRAIT Comment ont-ils trouvé le courage de prendre la route, à pied, sans bagage ou si peu à emporter ? Il est des désespoirs qui vous poussent à de grandes choses, c'est probablement ce que l'on appelle l'héroïsme de l'inconscience. Depuis des semaines, les rumeurs n'ont eu de cesse à s'amplifier. Certains parlent de charniers dans lesquels les chiens viennent se nourrir, trop contents d'y trouver comme une gourmandise. L'histoire, la grande, celle qui mérite une majuscule, confirmera les rumeurs. Qui s'y intéressera vraiment ? Trente mille prisonniers politiques assassinés. L'ayatollah Khomeini, dans un décret religieux, a ordonné l'exécution de tous les moudjahidine du peuple emprisonnés. Décret religieux ? Paroles prononcées au nom de Dieu. Et, en son nom, on détruit ce que la nature a créé en déployant un talent extraordinaire, une ingéniosité que l'homme a bien du mal à imiter ! Et pourtant, trente mille cœurs cesseront de battre à cause de quelques gouttes d'encre qu'un vieillard déposera sur le papier ! CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE "Tant de silences" est une philosophie pleine de bon sens, de vrai sens, du seul sens qui devrait guider nos pensées et nos actes. Et ce sans jugement, sans moralité. - Christine Brunet, blog Aloys À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR C’est par la poésie que Philippe De Riemaecker se fait connaître.

At thirty-two, Marine Vandale is still waiting for true love. The kind of love that takes your breath away, knocks you on the ground, and makes you scared and crazy all at once. “You’re certainly not going to find it if you spend all your time with three guys,” her mother likes to remind her. It’s just that Marine, her ex Laurent, Jeff her roommate, and their best friend Julien are inseparable. Together, they’re trying to navigate the troubled waters of their thirties, become real adults and tame love. But what used to seem like child’s play is becoming less and less of a game, and today’s mistakes are not as meaningless as the ones they made in their twenties. But each one in his or her own way continues to hope. And from date to date, from man to man, through a thousand situations she describes as “summer stock theatre,” Marine persists in believing that one day she’ll prove to her mother that you can’t fight love.
PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...
