About the Book

CLÉO est un conte, qui s’inscrit en décalé dans la représentation que l’on se fait généralement du conte traditionnel. Il est un conte philosophique, qui entraîne le lecteur, le narrateur et l’auditeur dans les sinuosités d’un récit où se côtoient : l’imaginaire, l’esthétique littéraire et l’art poétique, pour mieux servir de cadre d’expression et de transmission aux différents messages que véhicule le personnage dans sa longue quête... En effet : Dans chaque famille, dans chaque pays, partout à travers le monde, il y a au moins un « Cléo » qui se taît. Carmelle St.Gerard-Lopez
