By Daniel Poliquin

« Longtemps j'ai refusé d'imaginer que « Temps pascal » connaîtrait un jour los angeles faveur d'une réédition. Il y avait belle lurette que je n'aimais plus ce roman, pourtant mon most effective, dans lequel je ne voyais que l'essai gauche d'un écrivain mal armé pour l'aventure littéraire. J'avais même honte du titre, que je croyais pourtant avoir pondu dans un second de fantaisie débridée et qui m'avait seulement valu de voir mon livre rangé parmi les ouvrages religieux dans les librairies. Audace qui avait tourné au ridicule.

Rééditer un optimal livre, c'est accepter de se voir tel qu'on était jeune homme. On est d'abord pris d'un fou rire un peu gêné, comme lorsqu'on feuillette l'album de pictures familial et qu'on se revoit les cheveux longs et en chemise d'enfant-fleur quétaine. swimsuit l. a. obscure honte qui nous fait tomber les bras à l. a. relecture de nos premières lettres d'amour, dont l. a. sincérité rachète rarement l. a. mièvrerie et les fautes de français. Enfin, on est trompé par cet orgueil mal compris qui nous fait croire à tort qu'on a dépassé tout cela, qu'on est rendu ailleurs, and so on. À tort parce qu'on aperçoit aisément dans un most well known livre l'écrivain qu'on va devenir.

Non, il faut oser y croire, une réédition est riche de surprises agréables. »
