The “bibliothèque idéale” of Laurence Nobécourt

The Fondation Thalie invites individuals to come and talk about their relationships with literature and to propose their ideal bibliography through five titles, which will feed the Foundation library to make it a shared library, both timeless yet reflective of the current times.

Laurence Nobécourt‘s latest novel, Le chagrin des origines, is a burning tribute to the “way of the word” that allows one to get closer to oneself and give meaning to life. It gives us initiation moments on a steep path: the body exuding psychic suffering; the perpetual quest for the why of this “grief of the origins”.

In an intimate exploration of which Laurence Nobécourt describes the vagaries, the wounded dreams, the illusions and dazzlements, a soul is laid bare, always guided by a faith as free as fervent – and communicative.
