Synopsis: Traduit de l’islandais par Catherine Eyjólfsson. Un roman tendre et lumineux, par l’auteur de Rosa candida. Au cœur de l’hiver islandais, la narratrice voit son mari la quitter sans préavis. C’est le moment que choisit Audur, sa meilleure amie, pour lui demander de s’occuper de son fils de cinq ans quelques semaines. La jeune femme éprise d’indépendance se trouve confrontée à des responsabilités maternelles qu’elle n’avait pas prévues. Qu’à cela ne tienne : l’improbable duo prend la route pour un voyage initiatique tout autour de l’Islande. À travers les champs de lave et la pluie de novembre, de rencontres en péripéties, des liens profonds et émouvants se tissent peu à peu entre la voyageuse et son minuscule passager.Roman d’initiation, L’Embellie ne cesse de nous enchanter par cette relation de plus en plus cocasse, attentive et émouvante entre la voyageuse et son passager, ainsi que par sa façon incroyablement libre et allègre de prendre les fugaces, burlesques et parfois dramatiques péripéties de la vie. « Le lecteur retrouve ici le style sensible, mais non dépourvu d’humour, d’Audur Ava Ólafsdóttir. Comme Rosa candida, L’Embellie est un voyage charmant et poétique dans les âmes islandaises. » ― Anabelle Nicoud, La Presse À paraître, aux Éditions Zulma : L’Exception

About the Author: Née en 1958 à Reykjavík, Audur Ava Ólafsdóttir est professeur d’histoire de l’art et directrice du Musée de l’Université d’Islande. Après l’immense succès de Rosa candida, L’Embellie est son deuxième livre traduit en français.
