Conversations entre amis by Sally Rooney Summary

Dublin, de nos jours. Frances et Bobbi, deux anciennes amantes devenues amies intimes, se produisent dans la jeune scène artistique irlandaise comme poètes-performeuses. Un soir, lors d'une lecture, elles rencontrent Melissa, une photographe plus âgée qu'elles, mariée à Nick, un acteur. Ensemble, ils discutent, refont le monde, critiquent le capitalisme comme les personnages de Joyce pouvaient, en leur temps, critiquer la religion. Ils font des photographies, ils écrivent, ils vivent. C'est le début d'une histoire d'amitié, d'une histoire de séduction menant à un " mariage à quatre " où la confusion des sentiments fait rage : quand Frances tombe follement amoureuse de Nick et vit avec lui une liaison torride, elle menace soudainement l'équilibre global de leur amitié. Mais Conversations entre amis n'est pas qu'une banale histoire d'adultère : c'est avant tout le portrait attachant, empathique, des jeunes gens contemporains, ces millenials qui ne parviennent pas à trouver leur place dans le monde que leur ont laissé leurs aînés. La voix de Frances, poétique, désinvolte, parfois naïve, d'une extraordinaire fraîcheur est, par de multiples aspects, celle de sa génération. Traduit de l'anglais (Irlande) par Laetitia Devaux.

Ordinary people by Diana Evans Summary

Voilà treize ans qu’ils sont ensemble. Pourquoi le pronom « je » a-t-il disparu, corps et âme, de la langue de leurs couples ? Quand les bras grands ouverts de la maternité se sont-ils refermés comme les dents d’un piège ? Pourquoi le pronom « je » a-t-il disparu, corps et âme, de la langue de leurs couples ? À Londres, dans une ville amoureusement parcourue et habitée, de l’élection de Barak Obama à la mort de Michael Jackson, deux couples se débattent avec leur histoire, le travail, la quarantaine, les illusions perdues, et leur statut d’émigrés de la deuxième génération devenus parents à leur tour. Ils ont cru à l’intégration, voilà qu’ils se désintègrent. Là-haut, sur sa colline de la rive Sud, le phare du Crystal Palace les veille. La vie doit-elle, comme lui, accepter de voir ses facettes et ses façades tomber en mille morceaux pour être rebâtie ailleurs, en trois fois plus grand ? Avec brio, avec verve, avec un scalpel trempé dans un élixir de poésie, Diana Evans répond.
