By Topas Tamapima,Jinfa Wu,Christophe Maziere

L’île des Orchidées, le nom seul fait rêver…

Est-ce ce qui a conduit un jeune médecin-écrivain, Topas Tamapima, à y vivre pendant three ans et huit mois (de1987 à 1991) ?
Dans ses Souvenirs d’un médecin sur l’île des Orchidées, consignés au jour le jour, on y découvre :

- les manoeuvres des politiques qui veulent anéantir toute liberté sous les déchets nucléaires, entre autres…

Un grand livre de tolérance et de sagesse et une histoire vraie et actuelle !

EXTRAIT

Quant à l’île des Orchidées, je n’arrivais pas à me l’imaginer, et ce bien qu’ayant longuement étudié l. a. géographie de l. a. République de Chine. Quand j’étais en troisième année à l’université, j’avais vu par hasard une présentation de l’île dans le magazine. Je me souvenais juste qu’il y avait aussi des compatriotes montagnards d’outre-mer qui vivaient librement sur une petite île.
Quant aux raisons pour lesquelles je voulais y exercer, il fallait remonter à une singulière rencontre quatre ans plus tôt. Cette année-là, j’avais malheureusement ecu un twist of fate de l. a. path en allant participer à une grande réunion commémorative de réhabilitation de feu Lai He ; j’avais été admis en salle de soins intensifs à l’hôpital Mackay de Taipei, automobile j’étais dans le coma. Lorsque j’avais peu à peu retrouvé mes esprits au neuvième jour, les premières paroles qui m’étaient parvenues aux oreilles avaient été que « le médecin de l’île des Orchidées était mort ». En fait, le médecin et moi occupions los angeles même salle de soins et en avions été sortis de los angeles même façon, mais pas dans los angeles même direction.

À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR

Topas Tamapima est un médecin-écrivain de Taïwan. Il a déjà remporté les prix Wu Zhuoliu et Lai He à l. a. fin des années eighty, soit les plus importants de toute los angeles littérature taïwanaise, notamment pour son most suitable recueil intitulé Le dernier chasseur publié en 1987.
