Remonter l. a. Marne,"un voyage de retour", comme disent les ethnologues qui après avoir ausculté d'autres sociétés reviennent au will pay pour l'explorer.

Cette rivière, longue de 520 km, l'auteur l'a remontée à pied, depuis sa confluence avec l. a. Seine jusqu'à sa resource sur le plateau de Langres. Mince cordon nerveux situé trop près de los angeles tête, Paris. " C'est là qu'il faut attaquer los angeles maison France avec une likelihood d'en enfoncer l. a. porte", a écrit Fernand Braudel. Les catastrophes nationales surgissent toujours du côté de ce cours d'eau. C'est une France inconnue et inattendue que l'auteur a découverte.

Au gré de ses rencontres, il a été envoûté par los angeles France hors circuit, celle qui ne va jamais à Paris et s'en félicite, los angeles France des "conjurateurs", toutes ces personnes qui, sans être marginales, sont sorties volontairement de l. a. direction. Ces personnages résistent, à leur façon, au pessimisme contemporain et conjurent les esprits maléfiques de l'époque : l'esprit de lassitude, l. a. fascination pour los angeles décadence, los angeles tyrannie du consensus.

Voyage fragmentaire plutôt qu'inventaire, sorte d'extrait, comme on le dit d'un passage d'un livre ou de morceaux choisis, mais aussi d'un parfum concentré. Livre d'odeurs, de paysages encore intacts, d'églises désertes et de villages "démeublés" mais nullement moribonds. Seule l. a. marche permet un rapport au temps, au silence, et le marcheur reste ouvert à l'aventure d'une auberge inconceivable, d'un fish fry dominical sur les berges ou d'un héron tout droit sorti d'une delusion de los angeles Fontaine. Remonter los angeles Marne, c'est retourner en arrière, un désir d'aller vers l'origine, comme on se remémore son passé.
