by Maylis de Kerangal

" Les petits cons de la corniche. La bande. On ne sait les nommer autrement. Leur corps est incisif, leur âge dilaté entre treize et dix-sept, et c'est un seul et même âge, celui de la conquête : on détourne la joue du baiser maternel, on crache dans la soupe, on déserte la maison. " Le temps d'un été, quelques adolescents désoeuvrés défient les lois de la gravitation en plongeant le long de la corniche Kennedy. Derrière ses jumelles, un commissaire, chargé de la surveillance de cette zone du littoral, les observe. Entre tolérance zéro et goût de l'interdit, les choses vont s'envenimer...Apre et sensuelle, la magie de ce roman ne tient qu'à un fil, celle d'une écriture sans temps morts, cristallisant tous les vertiges.
