US Youth Literature: Ernest and Celestine, a complicity that has lasts 40 years
with "Chrome Love", Sylvain Patetieu makes an entrance noticed into Youth Literature
© Anne-Flora Hervé Teen, Sylvain Patetieu listened to the rap including "Paris under the bombs" of NTM. Love Chrome is the first work of youth literature of the novelist. And the first volume of a contemporary invigorating series. Do you know the hypaltage? This figure of style consists in associating two notions that do not give a priori not together but which, together, arrest. Love Chrome thus combines a feeling with a metal.
Several generations of parents shared with their children this friendship that conveys sharing and tolerance. The two friends are also adepts for recycling.
They were born in 1981 in Ernest and Célestine lost Simeon. He, a huge and tender bear. She, a sparkling and malicious mouse. Two characters a priori inconsistent and yet, for forty years, their link mocks their differences and reassures young and old.
The album is experiencing immediate success, such as the following twenty-five. The questions of Celestine, the last published in 2000, gives the keys to the complicit relationship of this unlikely and unavoidable couple of youth literature.

Much more than the Belgian Monique Martin artist, whose exhibitions, however, cause enthusiasm in Brussels. But at age 53, she leaves art galleries to devote himself to the youth illustration not very well considered at the time.
This radical choice is like this free woman who does not fit in the traditional boxes and who prefers mondanities with her peers, games with her nephews and nieces. Many live scenes are found in Ernest and Célestine .. as its lifestyle and ecological fiber that subtly appear in the images and which, in 2021, resonate with intensity.

because Monique Martin, ahead of his time, soon understands that overconsumption puts the planet in danger. She shouts it in her own way in the egg (1983). I was against! Against what ? Against us, against our exploitation, against the spirit of performance ... There was a good overall balance and we have damaged everything, there is no hope ... , writes about this enigmatic album.
In Ernest and Célestine, this consciousness is palpable and results in particular by recycling, without being a militant comment, but simply a way of life. Tests the Josephine Chamber furnished by the two protagonists with a keen sense of recovery and crisis of the communicative laughter.
