Synopsis

Soupconnee d'imposture des sa premiere rentree litteraire, accusee d'etre un homme age publiant sous un pseudonyme invraisemblable, Amelie Nothomb est une auteure qui - plus que d'autres - a du s'inventer. Dans Les Identites d'Amelie Nothomb, Mark D. Lee revient sur les circonstances qui ont marque les debuts d'une carriere extraordinaire et pour la premiere fois, il confronte les multiples constructions mediatiques de notre `barge belge' avec l'enigme de l'invention identitaire qui se deploie dans son ecriture fascinante, surtout dans Metaphysique des tubes. A travers des analyses accessibles aux specialistes comme aux amateurs, Lee trace les differentes variations d'un roman familial dans la fiction de l'auteure et il explore l'elaboration et l'echec de sa version japonaise dans ses ÷uvres autobiographiques. Juxtaposant interviews et recits litteraires, Lee identifie ensuite un `desastre onomastique', point de depart et fondement de la quete identitaire nothombienne et explore son retour unheimliche - etrangement inquietant - dans la representation de la sexualite, de la nationalite, et jusque dans la scene meme de l'ecriture. Entre baptemes et `de-baptemes', entre noyades, exorcismes et fantasmes nippons, Les Identites d'Amelie Nothomb est une etude fondamentale pour ceux et celles qui veulent comprendre la question cruciale de l'identite chez cette auteure.
