La femme manquée - Armel Job

Publié le par BenoitD

Armel Job (Belgique) - La femme manquée - 9/10

Une superbe découverte pour la lettre J de mon challenge ABC!!
Un roman "belge", qui sent bon le terroir, la campagne, ses habitants, ses travers aussi.
L'histoire est captivante, les personnages extrêmement bien décrits et attachants. L'émotion suinte à chaque page, qu'elle soit positive (le mariage, l'amitié...), ou négative (les enterrements, la différence...)
Evariste Lejeune est un clerc de notaire, respectueux et amoureux des belles lettres latines (surtout les récits de César, le grand Jules); Charles Lambert, paysan, sans éducation, cherche l'âme soeur sans succès.
Jusqu'au jour où... L'âme soeur arrive mais la chance est souvent compensée! A vous de lire la suite.
Voilà qui me redonne de l'espoir dans la littérature belge après Amélie Nothomb et ses nombreux (trop) romans sans vie ni intérêt.

4ème de couverture:

Charles a trente-cinq ans, possède une belle ferme à Sarteau en Ardenne et rêve de trouver une femme... Il s'adresse au clerc de notaire, Evariste Lejeune, pour rédiger des annonces matrimoniales. Echec. Puis réussite, lorqu'il découvre dans un catalogue exotique, sous la rubrique "Jolies indigènes cherchant mariage", l'épouse idéale. Arrive Opportune, jeune femme d'outre-mer qui meurt le jour même de ses noces. C'est alors que se révèle l'identité du pauvre Charles Lambert - révélation qui bouleverse le village et la vie d'Evariste Lejeune...

Armel Job a publié notamment Baigneuse nue sur un rocher (Robert Laffont, 2001), Helena Vannek (2002), Le Conseiller du roi (2003), La Femme de saint Pierre (Labor, 2004) et Les Fausses Innocences (Robert Laffont, 2005). La Femme manquée a remporté plusieurs prix et distinctions dont le Prix Emmanuel-Roblès (sur la sélection de l'Académie Goncourt).
