Only a teenager when Delphine was born, Lucile raised two daughters largely alone. She was a former child model from a Bohemian family, younger and more glamorous than the other mothers. But as Delphine grew up, Lucile's occasional sadness gave way to overwhelming despair and delusion. She became convinced she was telepathic, in control of the Paris metro system; she gave away all her money; she was hospitalized, medicated, and released in a kind of trance. Young Delphine was left to wonder: what changed her, or what shaped her all along?… (more)

Nada se opone a la noche es una obra literaria y real imprescindible, más allá de la concepción tradicional de novela o de autobiografía, más allá de otro género conocido. Es una especie de experimento emocional, un alarde de, como mencioné, valentía y constancia. El reflejo de varias vidas condensadas, para nuestro disfrute, en casi cuatrocientas páginas de existencias tan fascinantes como aterradoras, todo esto envuelto en un talento innegable de la escritora francesa.

Dit boek is het persoonlijke verhaal van de schrijfster, die na de zelfmoord van haar moeder haar leven probeert te beschrijven. De beschrijving is chronologisch, begint bij het gezin waar de de moeder in is geboren. Een groot gezin, waarvan 3 kinderen (broers) op jonge leeftijd overlijden. Dat heeft uiteraard ook de moeder, Lucile, getekend. De eerste helft van het boek vond ik het mooist en meest interessant. De tweede helft begint heftig, familiegeheimen komen boven tafel (de vader van Lucile blijkt incest te hebben gepleegd, met Lucile, maar ook met haar zusters en vriendinnen). En daarna sukkelt het verhaal verder en verder; het had wel wat korter gekund.
Bijzonder aan het boek is dat de schrijfster ons deelgenoot maakt van haar twijfels, de reacties van haar omgeving op het schrijven van dit boek.
Omdat Lucile een aantal keren wordt opgenomen en lange tijd zeer depressief is, waardoor de kinderen regelmatig aan hun lot worden overgelaten, doet dit boek me denken aan twee andere boeken: Ontembare paarden van Jeanette Walls, en Wij drieën, van Julia Blackburn. ( )

Epigraph
One day as I was painting, black invaded the whole canvas, without shape or contrast or transparency.
In that extreme I saw a kind of negotiation of black.
The differences in texture reflected more or less faintly the light, and a light emanated from the darkness, a pictorial light the emotional power of which stimulated my desire to paint.
My instrument was no longer the dark, but that secret lights that came from the dark.
Pierre Soulages

For Margot
First words
My mother was blue, a pale blue mixed with the colour of ashes.
