Trois nouvelles de Fred Vargas, magnifiquement illustrées par Edmond Baudouin. « Salut et Liberté » Vasco, tailleur de profession sans travail et donc clochard, semble avoir élu domicile sur le banc face au commissariat du 5ème arrondissement de Paris... « La nuit des brutes » n'est autre, pour le commissaire Adamsberg, que la nuit de Noël. Alors qu'il réveillonne en compagnie d'un collègue de service, Adamsberg prévoit pour les jours à venir la découverte d'un crime. « Cinq francs pièce » Adamsberg a affaire à un homme de la rue qui n'a pour seul compagnon que Martin, un chariot de supermarché lui servant à transporter un chargement d'éponges trouvé au rebut et qu'il s'efforce de vendre, cinq francs pièce.

All the more disturbing, then, is Adamsberg's discovery one morning of a fresh murder with exactly the same profile...

ISBN: 0307374033
Pages: 256
Year: 2010-01-05
Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg is not like other policemen. His methods appear unorthodox in the extreme: he doesn’t search for clues; he ignores obvious suspects and arrests people with iron-clad alibis; he appears permanently distracted. The Chalk Circle Man is the first book featuring Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg, one of the most engaging characters in contemporary detective fiction. When strange, blue chalk circles start appearing overnight on the pavements of Paris, the press take up the story with amusement and psychiatrists trot out their theories. Adamsberg is alone in thinking this is not a game and far from amusing. He insists on being kept informed of new circles and the increasingly bizarre objects which they contain: empty beer cans, four trombones, a pigeon’s foot, four cigarette lighters, a badge proclaiming “I Love Elvis,” a hat, a doll’s head. Adamsberg senses the cruelty that lies behind these seemingly random occurrences. Soon a circle with decidedly less banal contents is discovered: the body of a woman with her throat savagely cut. Adamsberg knows that other murders will follow. From the Hardcover edition.

Guiilaume Apollinaire, a leading figure amongst the young writers and artists in France until his death in 1918, published 'Alcools', his first book of poems, in 1913. With its wide range of verse forms and contrasting registers of style, 'Alcools' had a considerable influence on Surrealist poetry. The poems provide a splendid example of the lyrical art in which the paradoxes of Apollinaire are held in high poetic tension. The editor's introduction and notes take place in the 20th Century and explain allusion and difficulties in the text.

Danglard la voyez-vous ? demanda Admasberg. L'Ombre ? Le commandant revint sur ses pas, tournant les yeux vers la fenêtre et vers la pluie qui assombrissait la pièce. Mais il était trop fin connaisseur d'Adamsberg pour se figurer que le commissaire lui parlait du temps. - Elle est là, Danglard. Elle voile le jour . Vous la sentez ? Elle nous drape, elle nous regarde. - Humeur sombre ? Suggéra le commandant. - Quelque chose comme cela . Autour de nous. Danglard passa la main sur sa nuque, se donnant le temps de la réflexion. Quelle ombre ? Quand, où, comment ? - Depuis quand ? demanda-t-il. - Peu de jours après que je suis revenu. Elle guettait peut-être avant, rôdant dans nos parages. "
