Accompagnaient sa parade Nue est le uatrième et dernier volet de l'ensemble romanesue Marie Madeleine Marguerite de Montalte ui retrace uatre saisons de la vie de Marie créatrice de haute couture et compagne du narrateur Faire l'amour hiverFuir étéLa Vérité sur Marie printemps étéNue automne hiver. A very entertaining little novel The sentences go on forever using enough comma s for the rest of my life but are always easy to read and often very beautiful in those endless hours when I was in that hotel room in Tokyo without doing anything and contemplated the bitter truth that appeared to me clearly every day that the days are always horribly long and life dramatically short The author s sense of style is remarkable and his descriptions of the atmosphere of the scenes are spot on I still felt it could have been better since the story itself is a little far fetched and omen like statements in the beginning of the novel do not return later on This is not what I learned in my high school literature class Halfway through the novel I realized I read about the characters before in the novel Running Away Fuir Apparently Nue Nue is part 4 and Fuir is part 2 of the Marie tetralogy I re read Nue after I finished this novel In both novels the nameless protagonist shows zero initiative or vigor He is simply carried along by the current Straight out bizarre events simply happen to him and still leave him untouched The story is told as a continuous blending of current and past occurrences The line between past and present blurs becomes one Melancholy is always around the corner

Miel ruisselante elle s'avançait ainsi sur le podium en se déhanchant au rythme d'une musiue cadencée les talons hauts souriante suivie d'un essaim d'abeilles ui lui faisait cortège en bourdonnant en suspension dans l'air aimanté par le miel tel un nuage allongé et abstrait d'insectes vrombissants ui. A three part review of Toussaint s Marie novels excluding the first one Making Love which is out of print and would have cost me over eighty dollars second hand here s hoping the current copyright owners will let Dalkey bring it out and keep it in print Running Away was a very pleasant surprise a bit like a Javier Marias novel with most of the thinking taken out It s all spectacular scenes in wonderfully interesting writing and ever so slightly silly the narrator is always out of his depth and there s nothing he can do about that fact The book is also perfectly structured if nothing else Toussaint s work here will do prospective writers as much or good than a semester at an MFA My only complaint and this will echo through the other volumes is that when Marie is present the book becomes less interesting It s hard to avoid in this one we start with a near love scene on a train move onto the best chase scene I ve ever read and then well then Marie is just kind of there being supposedly irresistable but actually falling prey to the all too common Anna Karenina syndrome in which the supporting female character is far interesting and alluring than the sexy mysterious lead The Truth About Marie has scenes as wonderful as RA s but with the special bonus of actually including Marie and making her ever so slightly interesting provided you can nget interested in a woman who is really sad because her horse has died I m sure it s very sad when your horse dies but really if you own a horse and hang out with people who own racehorses my sympathy levels start pretty low But the Marias comparison holds here too great silly but affecting and funny and spectacular scenes but done much efficiently for better and worse Naked was after all that a bit of a let down There are no wonderful scenes here really the opening gambits are far too silly and unfortunately actually feature Marie who is just not interesting Anna Karenina rules this book and without the spectacle or intelligence of the second and third books in the series I can t help thinking that Toussaint just wanted to wrap it up and move on Alternatively he wanted to write something beautiful and romantic but there s love and tension in any given page of RA s train romance than in this entire book

    The fourth of the Marie tetralogy and therefore at once the most and least effective of these short novels There's a strange effect in series like this the euivalences I can think of are perhaps Truffaut's Doinel movies and the Kjaerstad er novels of accumulation The reader begins to delight in tying strands together and when we get to re visit characters after a number of years the experience of nostalgia is at once powerful and critically
