Genèse d'un écrivain

Bruxelles, années soixante. Dans le chaos et l. a. violence d’une enfance manquée, entre un père alcoolique et le spectre d’une sœur disparue, Je deviens écrivain. Comme une sortie à l’air libre. Comme une nouvelle ligne de vie à lire sur sa main.
Pourquoi construit-on une œuvre ? Quel temps veut-on faire revenir par-là ? Ici, il s’agit de dire sur quoi mon œuvre ne pouvait surtout pas être bâtie : contre quoi elle devait être construite.

Yves Wellens nous confie dans cette oeuvre autobiographique les raisons qui l'ont malesé à l'écriture

EXTRAIT 

Il bégayait. Alors, on l’appelait Jean-Jean. Pour faire plus court docket, quelqu’un s’est avisé de le désigner autrement : « Lui, c’est Je ». Et c’est resté.

Ce n’était pas los angeles première fois qu’on conduisait Je à los angeles rue des Cendres, où se situe l’entrée secondaire de l. a. clinique Saint-Jean, à Bruxelles. Il y était né, quatre ans et demi plus tôt.
Cette fois, c’était tout aussi sérieux. On l’y avait malesé pour une opération à cœur ouvert, décidée dès le mois d’avril après de longues réflexions et de multiples consultations. L’intervention avait été jugée inévitable, suite à une batterie d’examens et des symptômes particulièrement clairs : Je ne pouvait dissimuler un état de fatigue consistent et préoccupant : on l’avait retrouvé plusieurs fois, sofaé mais conscient, sur le tapis de sa chambre, au milieu de ses jouets et de ses livres d’enfant. Il était leisureé sans réaction quand on l’avait secoué, puis soulevé du sol afin de l’étendre sur son lit. Un jour, il avait été retrouvé à terre, une arcade sourcilière ouverte après qu’il fut tombé l. a. tête en avant contre los angeles coque d’un poêle.
Un médecin décela un canal artériel : le courtroom vaisseau qui relie, pendant los angeles vie intra-utérine, l’aorte et l’artère pulmonaire, permettant à los angeles stream sanguine de ne pas engloutir les poumons, et qui aurait dû se refermer presque immédiatement après los angeles naissance, était relaxationé ouvert.
C’était uncomplicated : si l’on ne pratiquait pas rapidement l’intervention, Je ne vivrait pas jusqu’à trente ans.
Les responsables de l. a. clinique avaient approché une équipe de médecins de Lyon, qui s’étaient rendus aux États-Unis afin de se familiariser avec les options à utiliser pour ce style de chirurgie. Ils acceptèrent de venir à Bruxelles examiner le sufferer et, après une concertation poussée avec los angeles path, ils envisagèrent de pratiquer l’intervention.

CE QU’EN PENSE los angeles CRITIQUE

- « Le "vert paradis de l’enfance" selon Baudelaire est assombri par les bouteilles que le père vide à l. a. chaîne pour Jean-Jean, dit "Je". Le raccourci ne compense pas l. a. durée des words du bégayeur. Mais provoque d’étranges effets à l. a. lecture : Je est sujet de verbes conjugués à l. a. troisième personne. Itinéraire body of workers complexe, rumeurs du monde qui se superposent par instants à un univers étriqué. Il y a de l’espoir. » (Le Soir)

A PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR
