Rarely does one still encounter a masterpiece that shakes his world and makes him add a new shade of emotion to the range he already had within him. This book is such a work of art. Through the story of the love and compation of a little 8 year old Arab orphan boy to the old Jewish prostitute , a survivor of the Holocaust, who raises him, we hear again the delicate music of the human spirit, of tenderness and compation, of delicate ties and daily hardships. Run to the bookstores and get this book. Read it and lend it to all you friends till all the pages are completely worn out, and you will never have spent your time and money more wisely.

It is a shame that this book and in particular this author is not taught in school in the US. It was not until I traveled abroad that I even came into contact with Romain Gary. He is a truly masterful writer who challenges all with his direct, even brutal portrayal of life and love. His personal life and history stagger the mind. I feel lucky that he has left his mark on the world and a history of his thoughts for all of us to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
