Zwei Jahre, und oft kommt es mir so vor, als hätte davor nichts existiert, nichts stattgefunden, als würde sich mein Gedächtnis von Neuem ver schließen und die vorangegangenen dreißig Jahre an einen Ort tragen, der meinem Gehirn verbor gen ist. An einen Ort, der von jetzt an bedeutungs los ist. Ihr Gesicht ist weiß im Lichtschein, der ins Zimmer fällt. Am Strand reihen sich fahle Straßen laternen, einbetoniert in eine von Restaurants, Bars 55 Olivier Adam und Spielgeräten für Kinder gesäumte Promenade.
An dem wir nachts im stillen Auto nach Étretat mit seinen Steilküsten fuhren, als be gleiteten wir sie in einem seltsamen Trauerzug zu ihrem eigenen Tod. Über meine Mutter vor meiner Geburt weiß ich nichts oder nur sehr wenig. Auch nichts über ihre Jugend oder darüber, wie sie meinen Vater kennen lernte. Ich weiß auch nichts Genaueres darüber, warum sie von Aveyron, wo sie einen Teil ihrer Kindheit verbracht hatte, an die Porte d’Orléans zogen. Ihre Eltern hatten dort eine winzige Woh nung im sechsten Stock eines roten Backstein hauses gemietet.
Mittags holte mein Vater den Standgrill hervor und legte Sardinen oder Fleisch auf den Rost. Nach dem Kaffee gingen wir hinunter ans Wasser. Ein Weg führte zum Strand, zu der kleinen Snackbar und den auf den Sand ge zogenen Tretbooten. Er war zu beiden Seiten von Lorbeerhecken gesäumt. Durch sie erspähten wir Schwimmbecken, Gartenmöbel auf den Terrassen, liegen gelassenes Kinderspielzeug, zum Trocknen aufgehängte Handtücher. In der Luft hing der Ge ruch von Lakritze und getrockneten Kräutern.
