    J'en profite pour vous faire découvrir aussi les premières pages du texte dans la traduction anglaise, avec des trouvailles qui, à mon avis, dépassent parfois ce que j'avais pu amener en français, des métaphores qui se filent et un rythme du tonnerre dans cette langue faite pour swinguer!

     

    " FRANCHISEE 

    Not so long ago, I was like you. The feverishness I can see in you. Far away from my initiation, and yet somehow already here: in this circle, hunger in my eye, unsettling curiousity a permanent question on my brow.

    But you can relax your forehead. You can trust me. You can forget this day, started and now almost over. Put it between brackets, keep it fresh in a corner of yourself until later, clear some room, hermetically seal away what’s bothered you, and let yourself enjoy our fresh smiles, the hidden promises we spread before you, and the new horizons we’ll teach you to discover.

    Say to yourself : this moment’s mine, it’s my life I’m mapping out, it fits me, my battery’s pulse, my way of being, my limits, my day-to-day. Yes, this is me, it’s me. You can say it. And you’re right to say it. It’s your moment, a life-changing moment that will buy you time. A moment that gives you your first glance at some practical, new horizons, and even fate can’t stop you as you stride past – though the discovery will only be here for today, and then it’s gone.

    MANAGERESS
