Laura VazquezLe livre du large et du long
A versified epic, imagined as an exploration of the world through actions, gestures, adventures. The narrator experiences scenes and ideas, in and out of her mind, at full speed. She is in turn and at the same time: mad, in love, sick, wise, worried, calm. A book like an encyclopaedia incarnate, free and subjective, a reading and auscultation of the world, from the smallest things: skin, insects, atoms; to the largest: human populations, war, the skies. From the most interior things: sensations, one’s own questioning; to the most material: medicine, anatomy, architecture. A faith in the strength and clarity of language, in its discoveries that “break the locks of things”, a lively despair, a humour and vivacity, a book that is as delightful as it is disturbing. After La Semaine perpétuelle (Éditions du sous-sol, special mention of the jury for the Wepler Prize 2021) and her anthology Vous êtes de moins en moins réels (Points, 2022), Laura Vazquez digs out a difference, a courage.
