By Frédéric Beigbeder

"Au fond je suis persuadé que les chefs-d'oeuvres détestent être des chefs-d'oeuvre. » résume Frédéric Beigbeder. Voici une manière de bilan, sans prétention à être exhaustif, de los angeles littérature au 20ème siècle. Pendant l'été 1999, 6 000 lecteurs ont choisi d'établir leur sélection des 50 livres du siècle, à l'aide d'une pré-sélection établie par los angeles FNAC et le magazine Le Monde. Le tout aboutit à cet inventaire commenté, avec los angeles subjectivité qu'on think. Alliance de l. a. démocratie et du choix subjectif, cette liste permet à notre trublion cultivé de « rafraîchir », de rajeunir, de discuter, de plaisanter, les oeuvres en query. De Nadja d'André Breton (n° 50) à L'Etranger d'Albert Camus (n°1 au most sensible 50), en passant par Lolita de Nabokov ou Bonjour tristesse de Françoise Sagan, on lira ici un Panthéon drôlatique et irrespectueux. Le commentateur s'autorise tous les raccourcis, les parallèles avec les mouvements littéraires d'aujourd'hui, mais sans jamais de départir d'un véritable enthousiasme.
