By Edmond de Goncourt,B. Briganti,Barbara Briganti

È l. a. descrizione di una dimora, stanza dopo stanza, seguendo il percorso di un visitatore.

È los angeles messa in scena di un artista nella sua casa-opera d'arte. Ma anche una autobiografia in cui, attraverso l. a. storia degli oggetti, si racconta della propria famiglia, del proprio fratello, della guerra: una vita attraverso le cose. E sembra, disse Verlaine, un poema in prosa scritto da un pittore. «Perché non scrivere le memorie delle cose tra le quali si è svolta los angeles vita di un uomo?» (Edmond de Goncourt).
