Blanche et Marie by Per Olov Enquist


Page 24:

Je ne comprends pas les caprices de cette radiation, elle apparait spontanément, comme si je me tenais devant la surface d’une mer et voyais quelque chose commencer a bouger, a croitre, comme si la mer était un être vivant, un animal marin ou une fleur naturelle, et que je voyais les feuilles se tendre vers moi, cette radioactivité me semble transgresser la première règle de la thermodynamique, quelle est don l’origine primitive de cette force?

I’ve already read two biographies on Marie Curie’s life, including the one written by Eve Curie Madame Curie: A Biography and more recently I read Obsessive Genius: The Inner World of Marie Curie by Barbara Goldsmith. However, I didn’t know some personnel details of her life as described in this book, even if it’s a work of fiction.

A GREAT book by P.O. Enquist and I’m planning to read more books by this author.

A classical movie Madame Curie (1943) with Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon tells the saga of this Nobel Prize winner.
