Polémico, controvertido, amado y odiado a partes iguales, André Glucksmann ha sido sin duda uno de los más influyentes pensadores europeos de los últimos cincuenta años. Y éste es el último libro que escribió. Como si hubiera querido dejar un testamento a sus conciudadanos europeos, Glucksmann invoca los angeles figura de Voltaire como faro para una Europa errática y asaltada por peligros que no sabe ni identificar. Con Voltaire contraataca, Glucksmann ha escrito un canto a los angeles libertad cosmopolita y llama a releer Cándido, uno de los más hilarantes himnos a los angeles tolerancia y una oda a los angeles libertad, ante tantos aprendices de dictador, ante el aumento de nacionalismos identitarios y xenófobos, ante tantas infamias, fanatismos y nihilismo. Cándido, el héroe que no posee más que el "vértigo de los angeles lucidez". Como cube Josep Ramoneda en el prólogo, "Glucksmann cierra así un ciclo very important ligado a l. a. filosofía que se abrió cuando period un niño y descubrió el valor de "la audacia de decir en público, costara lo que costase, lo que el ciudadano consideraba cierto"". Y esa actitud sigue siendo imprescindible en l. a. actualidad.

C’è un solo modo in keeping with sbarazzarsi di quell’atlante infinito, consistent with evadere dalla casa di carne che lei ha costruito, ci spiega los angeles nitida e allucinata voce narrante: accostarle una rivoltella alla tempia e straziarla: «Ti ucciderò, mia capitale; mio quartiere residenziale; sede del mio deportato governo; mia Stadt; esilio di turbolenti anarchici». E non meno fosca, allarmante è los angeles bellezza degli altri racconti, nutriti di poesia barocca e dei prediletti speedy, Lamb e De Quincey, dove si agitano personaggi-paesaggio vittime di alterazioni dimensionali, visitati da incubi, metamorfosi e apparizioni polimorfiche, attraversati da forze oscure e angosce, assediati da un nulla «popolato di nulla tormentosi» – e capaci di parlarci di verità ultime quasi celebrassero una fastosa e gelida cerimonia verbale. Come colui che, nel fulminante "Un libro", illustra il colpo segreto che ci resta – los angeles morte volontaria – quando tutto sembra perduto; los angeles convivenza con il nostro «quotidiano assassino», il nulla; los angeles necessità dell’odio, legittimo rifiuto delle «fascinose soluzioni sbagliate»; l. a. vana ricerca di Dio, di cui non conosciamo che una forma ingentilita e commerciabile: «una divinità sorridente, qualunquista, transigente».
