Download E-books Petit dictionnaire enerve de nos vies de cons (French Edition) PDF

By Pascal Fioretto

Ecrivain, journaliste, pasticheur, nègre littéraire. Pascal Fioretto collectionne les skills quand d'autres compilent les emmerdements. Avec son humour légendaire et armé de sa finesse de jugement de compétition, il décide aujourd'hui de se flageller pour notre plus grand plaisir en décryptant nos travers (qui sont, il en convient, parfois les siens) dans un petit dictionnaire de nos quotidiens urbains et sots. Comportements, spare time activities, applied sciences, loisirs, tradition. rien n'est moveé sous silence. Nos petites manies, nos types de vies, nos obsessions et nos issues de l. a. modernité ont enfin le droit à leur dictionnaire. Il était temps !

L'auteur est d'une infrequent finesse. l. a. fonction de l'humoriste, il l. a. décrit en creux, entre le rire et le doute. Et quand il parle de green-nazis et de fascisme olivâtre pour stigmatiser les excès de l. a. bien-pensance "écolo", il en dit autant que Virilio, mais en plus courtroom et en plus marrant. Même selected pour l. a. sociologie de l'art : los angeles littérature n'est pas une marchandise mais les bouquins, tiens donc ! "un peu quand même". Pas mal ! Un résumé imparable. Et l. a. technology, devenue nouvelle doctrine de l. a. pensée officielle, p. 173 : pas de doute, au-delà du rire !ça fait réfléchir, ô Juvénal des temps modernes !

Et toujours ce sort extraordinaire, marque de fabrique de l'auteur, qu'on avait déjà vu à l'oeuvre dans l. a. Trilogie (Gay Vinci Code, Et si c'était niais, l. a. Joie du bonheur d'être heureux).
Et tout à l'avenant : les boucles d'oreille en os de Godzilla, le village de Planjuzol vu par three courses touristiques totalement antagoniste, sans parler du boubou, le bourgeois boueux qui a fait son retour en campagne. On rit délicieusement jaune, c'est salutaire.

Un livre integral sous ses airs anodins !
