The lake is flat Night A white dress Gabrielle is on the beach She runs Her hair is flowing She glides through the long grass Oh the snow of her dress She speeds toward the wood Faster faster She is barefoot She seems to be flying It is night She is free The shadow of the trees bathes her like cool water Faster faster Her dress the ribbons diaphanous Gabrielle And now she has disappearedI confess that I have never ever heard of this author before but a short review by Jonathan had me intrigued Excellent Darn near perfect for what it is shades of Angela Carter and later Woolf at times I took a gamble with an unknown author and am I pleased I did Yes this novella is indeed perfect in every respectThe plot is set in a large isolated house on a lakeside in modern uebec Eight childhood friends now in their fifties have gathered for a weekend to reminisce about their early years in a closed and intimated group of young men and women who grew up together around a lagoon of the Palus River in a peaceful and semi rural town outside of Montreal in the 1950s So the scene is apparently set The friends are here though against a backdrop of the death of Gabrielle a very otherworldly asthmatic member of their group who had died at that time The main narrator Marguerite was a close friend of Gabrielle and saw how her fifteen year old friend s life changed once she met the odd couple Maria and her brother Walter who lived in the woods They in particular fascinated Gabrielle and she had to see them both as much as she could But they were indeed rather odd and then like a will o the wisp they mysteriously disappeared This had a profound effect on Gabrielle as she felt as if her lifeline had been irrevocably severedI can indeed see why Walter made such an impact on Gabrielle who was fey I will teach you to walk like a wolf he says Just let you hair fall now lift your head now use each of your legs now find your way between the trees Slowly slowly at first ah your ears are rising up very good You understand everything But I know you Sweet Thing you still have never howled Your lungs are still in a cage Now stretch out your neck open your mouth wide and do just like me howl converse with the night Don t be afraid It s only the moon that makes the shadows dance The forest belongs to usThis is one of those soul searching books that had me wondering about life in general and how our life is really so temporary as I have often compared to the twenty four hour mayfly Literally here today and gone tomorrow But the richness in the writing style here is incomparable to anything that I have read since Stoner last year The artistry with which Delcourt portrays the views of the other friends such as L o Paul the doctor who has HIV Fran ois and Mimi the siblings of Gabrielle Gauche Mimi who had made a rather disastrous choice in husband which ended up dividing her family Vapid Suzanne with glassy blue eyes Th r se one of those annoying individuals who knows it all who had organized this long weekend so they all could reminisce on the past Yet regardless despite knowing that the death of Gabrielle would play a large part in all of this they were still all eager to meet againBut it s the writing style that entrances me Epiphanies stud the work at every conceivable level in the multi faceted fabric of this work Even resurrection surfaces The influence of water plays an extraordinary part The novella is punchy somewhat fragmented in parts but stimulates the desire to continue reading The book mesmerized me in fact To have come across an author such as Delcourt is indeed serendipitous

I read this book after reading Lynne s review I was not as moved and intrigued as she was but this is the kind of book it takes a while to digest A bunch of friends have a reunion in their small uebec town It s a bit hard to keep track of who is talking and what s going on but after a while you enter the flow and it becomes easier to follow They have come to find some kind of closure about their dead friend Gabrielle The nature of her death and life are surreal shamanic real imagined I don t know But the book is short small and unusual Maybe in a day or two I will suddenly wake up and say Aha Brilliance But having just finished it I m in the blurry placePostscript A day after finishing this book and I m sorry to report that I have not been blasted by an inner aha But I think I know why What I referred to without giving a spoiler as a shamanic element to dead girl Gabrielle s life and possibly death felt to me author s mind directed as opposed to gut Walking into a dark place the woods houses with snakes blue vehicles shape shifting teachers supernatural adventures into bliss these are all iconic spiritual and shamanic symbols But they almost seemed planted separated from the motor of the story So while I admired the effort a lot I remained emotionally distant seeing the effort rather than feeling But maybe it s just me
