Nothing Holds Back the Night

by Delphine de Vigan

This is a haunting exploration of the possible reasons for Lucille's bi polar depression, and its effects on the sufferer and her family. The story is told by Lucille's daughter and might have been almost unbearable, but for the inclusion of warmth. love and humour. You need to meet the Day Glo ski-ing Granny!


Lucille had withdrawn far from us and far from everything. She was no more than an extra in a film whose script seemed to elude her more each day, standing in the middle of the set.....
There was nothing Francois Mitterand could do.
