Gilles Leroy

Alabama song


Alabama, 1918. Quand Zelda, " Belle du Sud ", rencontre le lieutenant Scott Fitzgerald, sa vie prend un tournant décisif. Lui s'est juré de devenir écrivain : le succès retentissant de son premier roman lui donne raison. Le couple devient la coqueluche du Tout - New York. Mais Scott et Zelda ne sont encore que des enfants : propulsés dans le feu de la vie mondaine, ils ne tardent pas à se brûler les ailes... Gilles Leroy s'est glissé dans la peau de Zelda, au plus près de ses joies et de ses peines. Pour peindre avec une sensibilité rare le destin de celle qui, cannibalisée par son mari écrivain, dut lutter corps et éme pour exister.. . Mêlant éléments biographiques et imaginaires, Gilles Leroy signe ici son grand " roman américain ".
