Based on a True Story

The whole story is based on the international bestseller "Nothing Holds Back the Night" (Colibri, 2013), a novel about the charming and mentally unstable mother of the author, who committed suicide. After the presentation of author's new book, embarrassed by her great success, the author gets acquainted with a beautiful and elegant woman named L. They both become friends, while gradually L. transforms into a demonic figure and obsesses the life and soul of the writer, trying to look like her, to work instead of her, to dress like her, to use her left hand like her ... After a small incident they both find themselves locked up in a provincial house where the monstrous nature of L. is revealed. Or maybe not? Or maybe not exactly? And how is it actually?

Delphine de Vigan

Delphine de Vigan (born 1 March 1966) is an internationally known French novelist who has won several awards.

The book which won the Rotary International Prize in 2009 as well as France's prestigious Prix des libraires. The novel was translated into twenty languages and a film adaptation was released in 2010 (No et moi directed by Zabou Breitman). Following the book's success, she became a full-time professional writer.

De Vigan's central theme is the trauma and the damages that adult behavior does to children. In 2011, her novel Rien ne s'oppose à la nuit (Nothing holds back the night), which deals with a family coping with a woman's bipolar disorder, won another clutch of French literary prizes, including the prix du roman Fnac, the prix Roman France Télévisions, the Grand prix des lectrices de Elle, and the Prix Renaudot des lycéens.
