At the age of 8, Jean-Pierre is leading a blossoming life, subject to the rhythm of nature, in a village that provides enough stories and space to feed his child’s imagination. There is a church in the middle of the village, a single primary school class, an authoritarian and a teacher with a moustache… Jean-Pierre is in love with his mum, as all little boys are, and extremely admiring of his dad, his champion, who is not around enough. But his parents split up…
For this new story, the author tackles a difficult period experienced by a child, in an almost autobiographical way.
A modest and deeply moving tale!
