By Emmanuel Moses
Un homme marche, qui pourrait se réciter les vers de Rilke : «.quelque selected qui est hors de notre vouloir ; nous nous engouffrons en elle comme dans un rêve, nous mourons en elle sans nous réveiller». Il start par déambuler dans les couloirs labyrinthiques d'un hôpital psychiatrique, y faisant d'étranges rencontres, réelles ou imaginaires, puis il se retrouve expulsé dans le monde glacial d'une grande ville en proie à los angeles violence politique, criminelle et sociale. Un monde où l. a. chaleur humaine n'est qu'un useless mot et où l'alcool noie les égarés.
« Le roman d’Emmanuel Moses illustre à merveille l. a. ʺclaudication du monde psychique derrière l. a. réalitéʺ, une idée précisément énoncée par l’un des protagonistes du livre. Oui, on poursuit le réel. On peut y passer sa vie. On ne va jamais assez vite. Et d’ailleurs ce n’est même pas une query de vitesse. » – Serge Sanchez, Le journal littéraire, à propos de Ce jour-là
