Recensioner

Été 1985. Alors que les Rita Mitsouko et Madonna passent à la radio, Philippe, 18 ans, et ses parents retrouvent leurs amis sur l’île de Ré. Les amitiés et les amours s’esquissent. L’histoire d’un été comme tous les autres qui se termine dans l’angoisse. Un roman générationnel et autobiographique, réflexif et introspectif, à l’écriture à la fois sobre et intense qui évoque un passage brutal de l’adolescence à l’âge adulte.

Un soir d'été is the latest novel by Philippe Besson, published in January 2024. For the past four years, Besson has published a book every year, each time at the start of the new year. A number of Besson's novels seem to emanate or emulate upon the style of another author. Un soir d'été is much reminiscent of Marguerite Duras whose novel L'été 80 is referred to in the epigraph, recalling the long languid summers by the sea.

In Un soir d'été Philippe Besson has once more reinvented himself. Un soir d'été is the story of six teenagers, five boys and a girl. They're the best of friends, having grown up together. Through small details, brand names, things people used not to have, such as mobile phones or surveillance cameras, novels that came out or were popular, etc., the time of the story is clearly lodged in the 1980s. The reader is carefully drawn into that epoch.

The first part of the novel sets the scene, the halcyon days of long warm summers, life in a small village, a small band of quite ordinary teenagers. Everything is seen through the eyes of Philippe. 18-year old Philippe is sexually attracted to Marc, perhaps even to Francois, but this is hardly pronounced and sexuality plays virtually no role in Un soir d'été. It is funny that the young girl, Virginie, aged 13, sees through Philippe, even suggests he wants to get laid by Marc.

The second part of the novel is a real page-turner. The story takes a dark turn at a party, disco in the village near the coast. The events are not cleared up, but they form a lesson for Philippe. What is there for the reader is the realization of the connection between Philippe and Nicolas, a connection Philippe has hitherto not seen. It is typical of that period, that kindred sould were not aware of each other. The lone, unshared agony of not being understood, or being mobbed and teased, growing up in a small community.

En refermant ce livre, je l’ai trouvé un peu vide… avec pas mal de remplissage…

Après réflexion, c’est justement ce qu’il exprime. Le vide de la disparition, du manque. Un ami disparu un soir de fête alors que tout était simple et insouciant. En vacances sur l’Île de Ré, avec une bande copain à jouir de l’amitié, des flirts, de la légèreté des 18 ans.

… un peu vide quand même

I was at the metro station waiting for my bus. I was only a few steps away from the bus stop and I still missed the bus because I got so caught up reading the last few pages of the book.
