Product Description

From the Back Cover

Ayant vidé la poubelle sur le trottoir, il trouva vite le sac qu'on plaçait dans la salle de bains, en retira des coton-tiges, un vieux tube de dentifrice, un autre de tonique pour la peau, des lames de rasoir usagées. Et les poils étaient là. Pas tout à fait comme il l'avait espéré : nombreux, mais dispersés, alors qu'il imaginait une touffe bien compacte, quelque chose comme une moustache tenant toute seule. Il en ramassa le plus possible, qu'il recueillit dans le creux de sa main, puis remonta. Il entra sans bruit dans la chambre, la main tendue en coupelle devant lui et, s'asseyant sur le lit à côté d'Agnès apparemment endormie, alluma la lampe de chevet. Elle gémit doucement puis, comme il lui secouait l'épaule, cligna des yeux, grimaça en voyant la main ouverte devant son visage. " Et ça, dit-il rudement, qu'est-ce que c'est? " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read this book in French. Carré is an author I have read without a great deal of interest but I really liked La Moustache because it is a simple explanation of how a mind canper mutate between sense and nonsense. At the beginning, we tend to take our place in opposition to Agnes who seems to be playing a game, that the moustache did exist. The hero of the story is never clearly identified, his personal pronoun being used rather that his name. This helps us believe that perhaps the moustache never did exist, except in the mind of a sad being.

This is a very good read.
