Het jurkje van Paul Philippe Grimbert De onmogelijkheid van communiceren op te hangen aan een lief klein jurkje, en daarmee een crisis veroorzaken in een ogenschijnlijk prima huwelijk is al een bijzonder idee. Om dat dan ook nog in een compact klein verhaaltje helemaal duidelijk te maken, is nog een extra gave. In mijn ogen is Philippe Grimbert een schrijver in de traditie van zijn naamgenoot Claudel. Het raadsel van de menselijk geest, hoe komt het dat een volwassen man die de vader is van een volwassen dochter als een blok valt voor dat jurkje in die etalage?

They are athletic, good looking parents, but they have birthed him, a delicate child they must keep from the jaws of death.

I survived, thanks to the care of doctors and the love of my mother. I would like to think my father loved me too - overcoming his disappointment and finding in care, worry and protectiveness enough to stoke his feelings.
But his first look left its trace on me, and I regularly glimpsed that flash of bitterness in his eyes. Full of fear at school, one day after watching a particularly disturbing documentary, he is overcome by emotion at the insulting comment of a boy in the class and starts a fight, something completely out of character. The incident left me with a patch above one eye that I wore around school with great pride.
But the injury brought me much more than ephemeral glory - it was the sign for which Louise had been waiting. The neighbour Louise is the only person he tells the truth about why he got in the fight. Perhaps I felt a deeper complicity with her than with my blood relatives. Affectionate as they were, my uncles, aunts and grandparents seemed surrounded by an intangible barrier forbidding questions and warding off confidences.
A secret club, bound together by an impossible grief. He is surprised at how upset she becomes, not at his behaviour, but something else, something much greater, the burden of which overwhelms her, something she too has known all these years, and believes now she must reveal to him. The day after my fifteenth birthday, I finally learnt what I had always known.
He fills in the gaps of the story, imagining the narrative himself, he knows nearly all the characters, except those that have haunted him, but he seems to have known them too. Finally, to overcome the final hurdle, he needs to fill in the final gaps, to find out the facts.
There remained a gap in my story, a chapter whose contents were not known even to my parents. I knew a way to un-stick its pages: I had heard about a place in Paris where I could find the information I was missing.
