La vie devant soi (The Life before Us) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Written by a French diplomat (under a nom de plume) through the eyes of the abandoned teenaged son of an immigrant prostitute, this gem has uncanny resonance. It evokes a life in which morbid humour is the first line of defence against despair -- very funny and totally without self-pity.
