By Terry Pratchett
Aux enfants ordinaires on offre des xylophones. Suzanne, elle, n’avait qu’à demander à son grand-père d’ôter son gilet...
Oui, elle avait l. a. Mort dans sa famille. Et il est difficile de grandir normalement quand votre aïeul monte un cheval blanc et manie l. a. fake, surtout quand vous devez reprendre l’affaire familiale pour reason de vacance et que tout le monde vous tient pour l. a. « fée des dents ». Bien plus difficile encore quand il s’agit d’affronter l. a. nouvelle musique – une vraie drogue – qui a fait irruption dans le Disque-monde. Elle n’obéit à aucune loi. Elle transforme les gens. On l’appelle l. a. « musique de rocs ».
Elle est rythmée, dansante, mais...
Elle est vivante.
Et elle ne s’arrête pas.
