By Catherine Robbe-Grillet

Sans plus. » Dans ce texte qui se déroule sous los angeles forme d’un abécédaire aux entrées a priori ludiques (Agendas à Yaourt), Catherine Robbe-Grillet restitue les gestes de l’homme qui partagea sa vie cinquante sept ans. On le découvre insensible à l. a. douleur body, mais dévasté par les dégâts occasionnés par los angeles tempête sur son parc, passionné par ses cactées auxquels il accordait une cognizance exceptionnelle, ou grand beginner de vin, de thé et de pots vides, tandis qu’il exécrait le ketchup. Catherine Robbe-Grillet revient également sur certains malentendus comme los angeles raison pour laquelle son mari ne se rendit pas aux obsèques de son éditeur ami Lindon. Elle pose un regard lucide et acéré sur certains épisodes de leur vie, tel l’établissement d’un contrat de prostitution conjugale qu’elle ne signa jamais, ou l. a. liaison de son époux avec l’actrice Catherine Jourdan qui inquiéta leurs proches, mais qu’elle assuma totalement, n’ayant jamais redouté d’être abandonnée.
