Sans Famille

Front Cover
Le Livre de Poche, Aug 3, 2011 - Fiction - 412 pages
1 Review

Le chien Capi et le singe Joli-Cœur, la brave mère Barberin et le signor Vitalis à la longue barbe blanche, Lise la petite muette, Mattia le jeune musicien, sans oublier bien sûr le courageux Remi, l’enfant trouvé... Autant de personnages si attachants qu’on ne les oublie plus quand on a fait leur connaissance, et que les générations successives découvrent avec le même bonheur.
Publié en 1878, Sans famille est devenu un classique de la littérature de jeunesse. Mais il n’y a pas d’âge pour se laisser captiver par l’extraordinaire don de conteur d’Hector Malot, et émouvoir par sa tendresse envers les humbles ; ni pour apprécier le talent avec lequel il tente de rendre le pittoresque et la réalité des milieux traversés par Remi.

Un grand feuilleton sur France 2.

About the author (2011)

Hector Malot (1830-1907) was a French writer born in La Bouille, Seine-Maritime. He studied law in Rouen and Paris, but eventually literature became his passion. He worked as a dramatic critic for Lloyd Francais and as a literary critic for "L'Opinion Nationale." His first book, published in 1859, was" Les Amants." Malot eventually wrote more than 70 books. By far his most famous book is "Sans Famille" ("Nobody's Boy, " 1878), which deals with the travels of the young orphan Remi, who is sold to the street musician Vitalis at age 10. "Sans Famille" gained fame as a children's book, though it was not originally intended as such. He announced his retirement as an author of fiction in 1895, but in 1896 he returned with the novel "L'amour Dominateur" as well as the account of his literary life "Le Roman de mes Romans" (The Novel of my Novels).
