Gilles Leroy

Nina Simone, roman

€8,90

J'étais célèbre, on me reconnaissait dans la rue, on m'offrait des concerts dans tout le pays, mes disques sortaient en Europe... Les télévisions me demandaient, les stars de cinéma aussi me réclamaient à leur table, Lauren Bacall, Frank Sinatra, la minuscule Natalie Wood... Mes amis étaient écrivains, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Lorraine Hansberry. Ma vie pourrait-elle jamais être plus belle ? J'étais la coqueluche du moment et une petite voix en moi susurrait : Profite, Eunice, ça n'aura peut-être qu'un temps". Comment Eunice Kathleen Waymon, la petite fille noire née dans une famille pauvre à Tryon, Caroline du Nord, en 1933, est-elle devenue l'immense Nina Simone, la diva à la voix unique et au toucher de piano inoubliable ? Le destin de Nina Simone ressemble à un roman : c'est ce roman que Gilles Leroy recompose, livrant avec tendresse l'histoire totalement vraie et totalement romancée d'une artiste adulée dans le monde entier - mais si seule dans la vie. Avec cet émouvant portrait d'une femme blessée, Gilles Leroy nous offre, après Alabama Song et Zola Jackson, le troisième volet de sa trilogie américaine.
