Où l'on retrouve cet esprit qu'anime une folle logique qui multiplie les abîmes et les mises en abyme, qui ne s'épargne aucun détour vers les zones les plus obscures de l. a. pensée et de los angeles vie. Où l'on retrouve cette écriture inimitable qui use avec une inégalée maîtrise de toutes les ressources de los angeles rhétorique classique et qui les manipule avec tant d'humour et de expertise qu'elles en semblent de l. a. plus belle avant-garde qui soit. Mais il s'agit donc ici d'histoires d'oncles, de neveux et de nièces.

Cela ne nous permettra pas mieux de percer le mystère de sa rédaction, mais au contraire, l'épaississant à l'envi, nous procurera davantage encore de plaisir.
