#100 - Nicolas D'Asseiva - Pax Dystopia (FR)
00:29:15

Au micro, Nicolas D'Asseiva nous présente son roman : PAX DYSTOPIA. 

D'un essai technique à la rédaction d'une histoire de science-fiction, son récit s'avère tristement proche de l'actualité que nous vivons... 

Pourtant c'est un ouvrage qu'il a commencé à rédiger bien avant "la pandémie". Nicolas aurait-il un don caché de voyance ? Nous avons essayé d'en savoir plus... 

Un podcast qui vous donnera envie de lire une histoire, une aventure mais qui vous invite aussi à quelques réflexions profondes... au fil des mots, des idées et des péripéties du héros.

Qui plus est, ce roman plaira à un grand nombre car il est rédigé d'une belle plume.

  • Nicolas, quel genre d'écrivain es-tu dans l'âme : plume sur papier, machine à écrire ou clavier ?
  • On présente ici "Pax Dystopia", quelle est la maison d'édition ?
  • Pourquoi ce titre, un message à passer ?
  • Est-ce ton premier ouvrage ?
  • Tu l'as écrit avant la crise, peux-tu nous en dire plus sur la genèse ?
  • Est-ce de la science-fiction ?
  • As-tu un côté Nostradamus qui vibre en toi?
  • As-tu tenu compte, t'es-tu inspiré de l'actualité pour adapter ton roman ? Dans un tel contexte : est-ce un véritable chalenge ?
  • Un esprit de révolte sommeille t’il en toi ?
  • Y a-t-il une idée engagée dans ce roman ou est-ce une histoire "tout simplement" ?
  • Quel est le message au final : un appel à la résilience ?
  • Adepte des complots... le qualificatif en vogue dès que tu pousses la réflexion, un avis différent... où te situes-tu ici ?
  • Pouvons-nous réellement imaginer, face à la bêtise flagrante dans la manière de gérer la crise, qu'une organisation "intelligente" soit derrière tout ceci ?
  • Décrédibiliser, balayer les opinions opposées du revers de la main... l'étiquetage d'extrême droite, un argument facile, un clivage politique : peut-on qualifier toute opposition d'extrême ?
  • Un aperçu de l'histoire sans dévoiler l'intrigue ?
  • T'es-tu inspiré d'autres écrivains ? Une culture de la science-fiction ? Tes références en la matière ?
  • Un auteur qui se distingue pour toi ? 
  • La science-fiction anticipe le futur sous plusieurs aspects, la crainte d'un sujet déjà et maintes fois abordé ?
  • La pandémie, l'aperçu d'un calendrier plus imposant : allons-nous le "vivre" au le fil de l'histoire ?
  • En imaginant tous les scénarios possibles, à la rédaction, en as-tu un en particulier en tête qui te ferait personnellement "flipper" ?
  • Si nous devions imaginer le plus beau scénario par contre : quel serait-il ?
  • Indécis face à des prises de positions fortes, "vacc Vs Anti-Vacc", le sentiment d'un avis majoritaire est souvent illustré dans les médias. Pourtant les opposants sont, en réalité, plus nombreux ; confirmes-tu ce sentiment ?
  • La scission entre citoyens n'est-elle pas apparue d'abord par le manque de respect et d'empathie face aux opinions opposées ?
  • À quel public s'adresse cet ouvrage ?
  • Il est donc aussi inaccessible aux ados ?
  • De l'essai technique au roman : as-tu simplifié ?
  • A ta connaissance, d'autres ouvrages vont-ils dans le même sens ? 
  • Un roman "Happy End" ? Ou pas ?
  • Le futur de l'écrivain ? D'autres ouvrages à venir ?
  • Un site Internet ? 
  • Qui est le graphiste d'une si jolie couverture ? 

Dans une société où le débat n'a plus droit au chapitre, dans une société divisée, faut-il passer par un roman de science-fiction pour pouvoir communiquer ?

Avons-nous encore une légitimité à questionner, à avoir un esprit critique ? J'ai mon avis sur la question bien sûr et je ne vais pas ici anticiper votre vision, votre ressenti...

Par contre, ce que je peux prédire, c'est qu'en mode roman vous aurez une lecture et une écoute saine qui ouvre les possibles débats... Vous allez littéralement vous évader au fil de l'histoire !

J'aimerai saluer ici le talent, le courage, l'audace de l'auteur et le remercier pour la confiance qu'il m'a accordée.

Peu importe votre vision, votre opinion au sujet de la crise : si vraiment vous croyez à des valeurs démocratiques, partagez cette interview et acceptez que chacun tire de ce roman sa propre lecture.

Cette liberté-là, à moins de brûler les livres, on ne vous l'enlèvera pas...

"Pax et felicitas te comitatur…"
