By Umberto Eco

Les Nouveaux pastiches et postiches d'Umberto Eco se présentent un peu comme l'œuvre mineure du grand homme. Le style d'ouvrage que l'on commet quand on est arrivé. Recueil de nouvelles de science-fiction, de chroniques éditoriales pour los angeles presse milanaise et de petites notes semi-autobiographiques, les Nouveaux pastiches rassemblent vingt ans de textes mineurs. On despatched le badinage chez l'important sémiologue, chez l'auteur du Nom de los angeles Rose, bref chez le monstre sacré de l'édition. Ni tout à fait scories certes, ni pensum mémorable légué à los angeles postérité. Les textes se laissent lire - d'une qualité inégale, glissant parfois vers los angeles chronique sub-kafkaïenne, parfois vers los angeles petite diatribe misanthrope. Polémiste et railleur, le propos ne manque pas d'humour, peignant en quelques touches acides les travers de l. a. modernité. C'est un peu l. a. vie mode d'emploi ... vue par une notabilité internationale.
