L’écriture hint donc un chemin, un itinéraire, celui du tramway qui menait, pendant 15 kilomètres, les voyageurs du centre de Perpignan aux villas bourgeoises de l. a. côte lorsque l’écrivain était enfant. Que ce parcours soit aussi initiatique – initiation à un non-savoir, celui de los angeles mort –, les premières pages du livre nous en persuadent. » (Pierre Lepape, Le Monde)
