Catherine Cusset

Un brillant avenir

€8,90

Elena, une jeune Roumaine née en Bessarabie et ballottée par l'Histoire, rencontre à un bal en 1958 un homme dont elle tombe passionnément amoureuse. Il est juif, et ses parents s'opposent au mariage. Elena finit par épouser Jacob et par réaliser son rêve : quitter la Roumanie communiste et antisémite de Ceauescu. Émigrer aux États-Unis. Elle devient américaine, et se fait appeler Helen. Elle a rompu avec le passé, mais l'avenir n'est plus un rêve. Helen est maintenant confrontée à une réalité qui lui échappe : la maladie et la dépression de son mari ; l'indépendance de ce fils à qui elle a tout sacrifié, et qui épouse une Française malgré l'opposition de ses parents. Cette jeune femme égoïste, arrogante, imbue d'un sentiment de supériorité presque national, Helen ne l'aime pas. Cette belle-mère dont le silence recèle une hostilité croissante, Marie en a peur. Pourtant, entre ces deux femmes que tout oppose – leur origine, leurs valeurs et leur attachement au même homme –, quelque chose grandit qui ressemble à de l'amour.
