Being a part of any community let it be marriage family or close circle of friends does not entail an alignment of thoughts and values however it often feels this way and forms the basis for connecting Everyone knows an unsettling feeling that a certain kind of recognition brings when all of a sudden your world becomes parallel than related to that of others and an abyss opens to show you that an intersection of beliefs is made of so completely different directions that three dimensions are suddenly not enough to describe the space we live inThis was the feeling of reading this book After an initial story about a family that is at least close if not happy where the joys and tragedies are described from a chronological and personal distance it makes an abrupt switch to the conseuences of a dark previously unmentioned family secret that weaves its web on generations to come From an idealistic family portrait we are dragged into the personal lives of traumas and their tangible realities The fundamental loneliness of each of us that is never felt deeper than in a company of deft listeners is shown within all its reach to the point I wondered if perhaps it is not the author's fault to make the threads that link solipsistic planets so little known As in life I was left to fill the blanks myself

Rien ne s'oppose à la nuitO de miedo silencio y devastación Así poco a poco a ritmo de intriga la autora cronista e hija compone un retrato asombrosamente conmovedor y sincero formado de personalísimos recuerdos y datos familiares ue dibujan finalmente un lazo terrible pero no falto de amor Estrella García Oletv. This book has been on my TBR list since last year after reading Delphine de Vigan’s Prix Renaudot winning novel “D’après une histoire vraie” In that novel which I incidentally also enjoyed Delphine often referenced “Rien ne s’oppose à la nuit”It took some time for me to finally secure a copy of the novel at my library however I must say that “Rien ne s’oppose à la nuit” was certainly worth the waitThe novel is Delphine de Vigan’s attempt to look back and better understand the life of her mother Lucile not her real name In order to tell the story of Lucile and her family de Vigan interviews her family goes through old family records and ends up letting a lot of skeletons out of the closetThe story of Lucile and her family is both fascinating and deeply disturbing De Vigan was in fact the centre of a lot of controversy after the book was published from those who accused her of ‘selling her family out’ and ‘revealing too many disturbing and private accounts of her family problems’I however felt that the novel was well written with a lot of sincerity and heart With its strong and moving ending I felt that the novel was at the end a homage to a strong and exceptional woman who is worthy of a tremendous amount of respectI’ve read uite a few biographic memoirs over the past few years I would say that this one was the bestHighly recommended to be read while listening to “Osez Joséphine” by Alain Bashung the song which inspired the novel’s title

READ ð Rien ne s'oppose à la nuit Æ Una madre muere repentinamente y su hija decide investigar Pero la desaparición ha sido voluntaria Y el suicidio por tanto transforma la investigación en reconstrucción de una vida Así es como tendremos el privilegio de asistir a la crónica de una familia el hermoso retrato de los despreocupados Poirier Reocupados Poirier «precursores de la burguesía bohemia» Su vórtice es Lucile surcada de cicatrices y sombras siempre con la impronta de la enfermedad mental Una niña hermosa y una bellísima mujer ue tras el telón de un entorno próspero y dichoso se siente empujada a un cuarto oscur. 45 I am in awe of what Delphine de Vigan has created in Nothing Holds Back the Night It is the sister to her superb Based on a True Story and it strikes me that the books mirror each other in interesting ways Based on a True Story is a philosophical rumination on the craft of writing dressed up as a story of suspense Nothing Holds Back the Night is essentially a family memoir but it is as fast paced gripping and tense as a great thrillerDe Vigan sets out to write the story of her mother Lucile whose mental health problems defined her life and ultimately resulted in her suicide Writing an account of Lucile also means writing about her large family Liane and Georges Poirier and their nine children Full of colourful characters yet often touched by tragedy theirs is a remarkable story in its own right In part one of the book de Vigan uses memories diaries home videos and interviews with family members to construct a vivid portrait of the Poiriers In parts two and three de Vigan's own voice comes to the fore as she recounts her own memories of Lucile from her first committal in 1980 to her death in 2008But this is not a straightforward chronological account because de Vigan often inserts herself into the narrative recording her struggles with both the material and the very concept of 'writing her mother' Most significantly her research unearths a piece of writing by Lucile in which she accuses a family member of rape De Vigan writes of the apprehension with which she approaches this material the fear that she will be cut off by her relatives 'Is fear enough to make one silent' Eventually she finds her own answer delivering it not with a direct statement but instead by way of juxtaposition 'The way I write these sentences the way I place them reveals my truth'In many ways Nothing Holds Back the Night is in direct dialogue with Based on a True Story and I find that I can't talk about this book without talking about that one Of course Night came first published in French in 2011 English in 2013 but it's because I was so blown away by True Story that I came to read de Vigan's back catalogue The tie between the two is so strong really that I don't think it would be wrong to see True Story as a seuel both are described as novels and read largely as memoirs; both are narrated in first person by Delphine; both engage with ideas about the relationship between truth and fiction the fallibility of memory and the ethics of writing I even discovered that one of my favourite lines from True Story – 'Whatever you write you are in the domain of fiction' – is in fact a callback to NightI had probably been hoping that a truth would emerge from this strange material But the truth didn't exist I had only scattered fragments and the very fact of arranging them already constituted a fiction Whatever I wrote I would be in the realm of fablesSometimes if you read multiple books by the same author you come across one that feels like a key to everything else they've written; Nothing Holds Back the Night I think is this for de Vigan It is a memoir; it is book about the process of writing a memoir; it is a novel in the sense that a narrative which imagines and embellishes scenes is called a novel Or it doesn't matter what it is because it's a brilliant piece of writing – affecting and riveting difficult to put down and impossible to forgetTinyLetter
