- What is done being more to do, one should automatically award the Goncourt prize to experienced writers. They would be allowed to breathe freely. Pierre Lemaitre is unleashed in Couleurs de l'incendie, which follows the Au revoir là-haut (Goncourt 2013) and is more successful, more fun. No importance if we have not read the previous book, or if we have forgotten the beginning of the adventures of the Péricourt family. The author takes care of the presentations with a certain tact towards us: "The readers who know Madeleine know that she had never been very pretty."Madeleine Péricourt pulls all the strings of this novel which counts beautiful ones. When the story begins, in 1927, the financial and political elite prepares to bury Marcel Péricourt, banker. The President of the Republic is past, the "funeral car is ready" in the courtyard of the mansion, when the son of Madeleine, Paul, 7 years, flows from the second floor and crashes on the coffin of his grand-father.--Tanslation by Liberation.
