Dall'introduzione di Mario Fortunato:
“Una sera di molti anni fa Heiner Müller, un drammaturgo tedesco che non avrebbe potuto essere più lontano dalla scrittura e direi dall'ispirazione di Virginia Woolf, mi disse che consistent with lui lavorare con le parole voleva dire scendere in cantina according to dissotterrare i propri morti: e non una ma countless volte, ogni giorno, senza sosta e inevitabilmente – in keeping with tutto il pace che l. a. stesura di un testo richiedeva. [...] Non c’è una pagina, in queste quarantacinque storie lungo le quali si sperimentano e bruciano esperienze narrative various, talvolta incredibilmente varied fra loro, e durante le quali l. a. Woolf cerca, trova, decostruisce e ricostruisce instancabilmente los angeles propria voce, attraversando i registri del realismo e della sua dissoluzione, del flusso di coscienza e della favola, del comico e del tragico, non c’è una pagina, dicevo, in cui Virginia Woolf non scenda nella cantina di cui sopra. E l. a. sua discesa quotidiana, anno dopo anno, consistent with oltre un trentennio, è tanto più stupefacente, coraggiosa e piena di generosità perché los angeles cantina in cui lei approda non solo è molto più vasta del suo stesso io ma è invasa dall'acqua, allagata, sommersa, e i corpi dei suoi morti non possono essere dissotterrati in line with il semplice motivo che non giacciono da nessuna parte, ma vagano inquieti e irriconoscibili nella corrente.”

Sous le pseudonyme de Florent Lelou, il avait publié quelques poèmes et nouvelles, automobile mon ami s’adonnait à l’écriture et ne manquait pas de me présenter le fruit de son inspiration.
Mais c’est à ses récits que mon mind's eye s’exaltait. Combien de fois l’ai-je prié de me conter de nouveau Le Feu, Mazelure ou bien Le Chemin perdu, ou quelque autre récit. Curieusement, ces histoires qui m’enfiévraient jusqu’à troubler mes nuits, il ne les a jamais écrites ; du moins, il ne m’en a jamais montré les manuscrits.
Dans chacune d’elles, on décelait sans peine le trait commun qui marquait les protagonistes : apparente ou discrète, los angeles Mort était leur fidèle compagne. M’étonnant de cet point morbide, je ne pus m’empêcher de le questionner pour en connaître los angeles raison. « Non, Jacques, me répondit-il, ce n’est pas los angeles basic mort que j’évoque ; c’est une selected bien plus subtile ! C’est l’infini de ces instants indéfinis où l. a. Mort et los angeles Vie se fondent en un baiser plus voluptueux que celui des amants. Cet euphorisant aux lèvres d’ombre et de feu nous fait découvrir un monde qui n’est plus celui des vivants, et pas encore celui des morts ; ce monde, c’est… c’est los angeles Morévie. »
En 1968, un soir de mai, mon ami partit de chez lui et plus jamais je ne le revis.
Florent, me pardonneras-tu de révéler au grand jour le monde de los angeles Morévie où, vraisemblablement, tu es à cette heure présente.

Het is niet precies te voorspellen wanneer het zich zal openbaren, maar in Apocalyps, een nieuwe bundel verhalen van Arnon Grunberg, voelt het einde voortdurend als nabij.

Soms houdt het gevaar zich schuil in de eigen woonkamer.

Of iemands wereld nu verwoest dreigt te worden door een familielid, Afghanistan, een priester, geliefde, Bulgaren, een sort, huisdier of collega: niemand is veilig in Grunbergs omineuze universum.

Het lucht op, het huilen en de koude tegels. Als hij klaar is, houdt hij zijn hoofd onder de koude kraan.

Hij doet de koelkast open en kijkt naar het restant van de taart.

De stilte is hier anders dan daar. Een automobile in de verte. Er zoemt iets. Hij doet de koelkast weer dicht.

Zonder licht te maken sluipt hij als een kat door zijn woonkamer, alsof daar iets te vinden is wat hij nog nooit heeft gezien.
