Wild Love 2
Ils s’attirent autant qu’ils se détestent ! *** Casey Lewitt est l’une des plus grandes stars de Hollywood. Enfant terrible aux mille frasques, il se sort de toutes les situations d’un sourire charmeur. Mais après le scandale de trop, il a désespérément besoin de redorer son image. Alors il est envoyé contre son gré à Hawaï pour une mission humanitaire : pas d’alcool, pas de drogue et pas de fête. L’enfer ! Et le pire, c’est Alana. Aussi fière que coincée, la jolie bénévole le fusille du regard à chaque instant. Elle rêve autant de l’embrasser que de le gifler, et leurs affrontements sont électriques. Tous les coups sont permis ! *** – Pssst… Pssst… m’interpelle une voix derrière moi. Sa voix. Je fais semblant de ne rien entendre et continue de noter. – Pssst… insiste Lewitt avant de carrément me tapoter sur l’épaule. – Quoi ? lancé-je exaspérée. – Excuse-moi de te déranger, Blanche-Neige, me chuchote-t-il à l’oreille en se penchant vers moi, j’aurais voulu savoir comment on fait pour se retrouver avec les plongeurs. Parce que nettoyer la plage, ça va aller, les travaux d’intérêt général j’ai déjà donné… « Blanche-Neige ». Parfait. Hilarant. J’imagine que cette plaisanterie, digne d’un gamin de 6 ans, vise à me faire remarquer, au cas où je l’ignorerais, que je suis vraiment, vraiment très brune, et que j’ai la peau vraiment, vraiment très pâle. – On se montre suffisamment responsable pour arriver à l’heure en réunion, pesté-je à voix basse. On ne se pointe pas sur l’île à la dernière minute mais au moins vingt-quatre heures avant pour prendre ses marques. On essaye d’avoir un casier judiciaire clean. Ah, j’oubliais ! On passe son diplôme de plongée sous-marine, niveau 2 minimum. Pour l'encadrement de mineurs, c'est mieux. – Je sors à peine de taule, concède-t-il d’un ton narquois, mais j’ai un diplôme, niveau 3. D’après toi, ce sera assez pour faire oublier mes crimes passés ? – Il a son diplôme… marmonné-je pour moi-même. À quoi je m’attendais ? Il a probablement aussi son permis moto, bateau, hélicoptère, et monte à cru des chevaux sauvages au soleil couchant. – On peut savoir ce que tu marmonnes dans ta barbe ? – Tu vas te taire, oui ? m’impatienté-je. J’essaye de suivre ! – Très aimable, murmure-t-il avec une ironie qu’il doit penser irrésistible. C’est pas Blanche-Neige que j’aurais dû t’appeler, c’est Grincheux. *** Wild Love – Bad boy & secret girl, de Chloe Wilkox, volume 2 sur 9

The Books in My Life
In this unique work, Henry Miller gives an utterly candid and self-revealing account of the reading he did during his formative years. Some writers attempt to conceal the literary influences which have shaped their thinking––but not Henry Miller. In The Books in My Life he shares the thrills of discovery that many kinds of books have brought to a keenly curious and questioning mind. Some of Miller’s favorite writers are the giants whom most of us revere––authors such as Dostoeyvsky, Boccaccio, Walt Whitman, James Joyce, Thomas Mann, Lao-Tse. To them he brings fresh and penetrating insights. But many are lesser-known figures: Krishnamurti, the prophet-sage; the French contemporaries Blaise Cendrars and Jean Giono; Richard Jeffries, who wrote The Story of My Heart; the Welshman John Cowper Powys; and scores of others. The Books in My Life contains some fine autobiographical chapters, too. Miller describes his boyhood in Brooklyn, when he devoured the historical stories of G. A. Henty and the romances of Rider Haggard. He tells of the men and women whom he regards as "living books": Lou Jacobs, W. E. B. DuBois, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and others. He offers his reminiscences of the New York Theatre in the early 1900’s––including plays such as Alias Jimmy Valentine and Nellie, the Beautiful Cloak Model. And finally, in Miller’s best vein of humor, he provides a satiric chapter on bathroom reading. In an appendix, Miller lists the hundred books that have influenced him most.
