Skyhorse Publishing Company, Incorporated, May 4, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography
0 Reviews
A haunting story about growing up by acclaimed French author Jean Rouaud. As a young man, the writer is myopic, dreamy, lonely, grieving the deaths of his father and grandfather and seeking to bring the confusions of adolescence into focus. Sharing his more-or-less world are Theo and Gyf, lover and friend, one for whom life is mystery, the other who wants to frame it in a camera lens.
