Christian Présent interview de la romanciere et auteure de nouvelles, Laurette Mas-Camille

OL: Ta révolution passe-t-elle par les livres?
Laurette Mas-Camille: «
Je choisis l'autre définition de révolution. » Et c 'est non. Je suis une petite planète habitée par les folies nécessaires à la vie. Je  gravite autour de la lumière et ma révolution (il y a révolution et révolution) passe par celle des autres ; les livres sont mes satellites, ils sont là parce que je suis là.

OL: Es tu extravagante, pieuse, ou Rachmaninoff ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Extravagante dans mes pensées et mes paroles,  qui sont étendues autant que les accords que composait Rachmaninov. Il possédait des doigts très longs, très maigres et se permettait d'écrire des largesses presque impossibles à jouer. Je suis son contraire, j'écris des livres que tout le monde peut aborder, et j'offre en prime les rires. Pour la piété, ce sera dans une autre vie.

OL: Jusqu'où pourrait aller ta désobéissance ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Jusqu'à mon dernier livre, « Les bêtises d'une cambrée ».

OL: Si tu devais proposer un livre-sérum au commun des mortel, ce serait lequel ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Un livre avec des pages blanches, aucun mortel n'est commun et il devra écrire son propre livre.

OL: Écrire, jouir de la vie, l'orgasme de l'écrivain, comment le définirais-tu ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Comme un verre de vin qui se remplirait au fur et à mesure qu'on le boit.

OL: Nos livres iront-ils au paradis ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Bien sûr que oui. Reste encore à définir le Paradis, et ceci est l'affaire de chacun. En revanche, le paradis des livres, c'est l'esprit. Tant qu'ils sont lus, ils goûtent à cette félicité.

OL:  Steack tartare ou Le Tartare ?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Le Tartare, tout près de ma peau, si près que je le consommerai petit a petit, en steack justement, et il n'en trouvera rien à en redire...

Regarding Godliness. it’s for another life

Christian Present interviews novelist and short story author, Laurette Mas-Camille

OL: Do you express your revolution via your books?
Laurette Mas-Camille: 
"I will go for the other definition of revolution. And it's no. I could compare myself as a small planet inhabited by the necessary follies to go through life. I gravitate around the light and my revolution (there are 2 types of revolutions) passes by that of others; the books are my satellites, they are there because I exist.

OL: Are you extravagant, pious, or Rachmaninoff?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
I am extravagant in my thoughts and words, which are as extensive as the chords that Rachmaninov composed. His fingers were very long and thin and could write some grandiose compositions almost impossible to play. I am his opposite, I write books that everyone can talk about, and I offer laughter as a bonus. Regarding godliness, it’s for another life.

OL: How far your disobedience could be extented?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Up to my last book, "Les bêtises d'une cambrée ".

OL: If you had to offer a serum book to the common mortal, what would it be?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
A book with blank pages, no mortal is common and he will have to write his own book.

OL: Writing, enjoying life, how would you define the writer’s orgasm?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Like a glass of wine that would fill up as you drink it.

OL: Will our books go to heaven?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Yes of course. It remains to define Paradise, and this is everyone's business. On the other hand, books’ paradise is the spirit. As long as they are read, they taste this bliss.

OL: Steak Tartare or Tartare?
Laurette Mas-Camille:
Tartar, very close to my skin, so close that I consume it little by little, and it won’t have nothing else to say...
