Parler à un mouton, which is published by the Éditions Jannink in the collection « L’Art en écrit », oscillates in a fragile balance between humor, gravity and nostalgia. The writing is poetic, sometimes raw. Pages follows one another in a universe supposedly childish, where drawings mingle with words.
The text "useless but burlesque" is infinitely rich with its multiple levels of reading and popular references. Claude Lévêque takes us everywhere: from the provincial restaurants in Nevers, from the highways of the desert to Vichy. But above all, it is David Bowie that he admires. Only the most enlightened readers, immersed in memories and fantasies, will be able to disentangle the truth from the false. Whatever. The goal is not to dissect the text to extract the truth, but to share these few unexpected fables.
