Oscar and the Lady in Pink

This engaging summary presents an analysis of Oscar and the Lady in Pink by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, a novel about a young boy called Oscar who is suffering from a serious disease and has days left to live. Through his relationship with a former wrestler called Granny Rose, Oscar slowly comes to terms with his situation and, with the help of letters, he writes to God, and makes his peace with it. A part of the Cycle of the Invisible, Oscar and the Lady in Pink has been adapted for both the theatre and the cinema. Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt began his career as a scriptwriter but soon moved on to writing novels, many of which prominently feature religion. In 2013, he published his first graphic novel.

Αγαπητέ Θεέ

“Αγαπητέ Θεέ,

Με λένε Όσκαρ, είμαι δέκα χρονών, έχω βάλει φωτιά στη γάτα, στο σκύλο, στο σπίτι (αν δεν κάνω λάθος έχω ψήσει και τα χρυσόψαρα), κι αυτή είναι η πρώτη φορά που σου γράφω, γιατί μέχρι σήμερα, λόγω του σχολείου, δεν είχα χρόνο.

Σου το λέω ευθύς εξαρχής: σιχαίνομαι να γράφω. Για να γράψω, πρέπει πραγματικά να είμαι αναγκασμένος να το κάνω· γιατί το γράψιμο είναι γιρλάντα και στολίδι και μεταξωτή κορδέλα. Τι άλλο είναι το γράψιμο από ένα ωραιοποιημένο ψέμα; Το γράψιμο είναι για τους μεγάλους.”
