I still associate Summer with reading French books That s a routine we had when growing up The shadow of Romain Gary belongs to those Summers with all the enchantment that memories from one s youth hold for all of us since his was one of names on my father s bookshelves So I am certain I have read some of his works but cannot remember which No matter I am delighted I have picked his books up again for this novel has been one of the most memorable reads this year La vie devant soi was published in 1975 under the penname mile Ajar and it won the Goncourt that same year it was chosen over one by Patrick Modiano Gary had already received the Prize in 1956 with Les Racines du ciel and since this prize can be awarded only once to a given author plus the fact that Gary was going through a difficult time with the literary critics prompted him to present the book under pseudonym Who was behind Ajar was not found out until after Gary s suicide in 1980And the fact that this could happen that no one suspected who was the real author behind a novel that had such immediate and great success is the best proof of what for me is one of the most attractive features of this novel the voice of the narrator An excellent writer is the one who can create a voice that completely defines the personality the mind of a fictional character and completely disappear behind it So when we hear Momo a Muslim Mohamed of about ten to fourteen years old for his age remains a mystery for a portion of the book describe his world his life at the pension run by Madame Rose an elderly former prostitute who as a Polish Jew had survived through Auschwitz before she came to live in Paris we are completely captivated by him For although his universe is that of a working class district in North eastern Paris the candour and alertness with which he observes those around him and his reasoning of how and why things happen in a certain way one forgets that behind this invented Momo there is an adult writer of an entirely different background Momo becomes particularly endearing when he uses expressions often euphemistic that he has heard around him and has completely assimilated them without fully understanding what is behind them The most notorious is the one he has learnt from Madame Rose when she refers to the other women ui se d fendaient avec son cul and that he then often uses when he figures out how other adults also defend themselves Endearing also in Momo is his heart His gut love for the decaying Madame Rose who becomes and preposterous not just to us but to him too is almost chimerical And that love is the driver in the story The portrayal of this impoverished society is enriched by the gallery of personalities and if one needs a scenario the best is offered by Madame Rose s apartment at the top of building of six storeys with no lift Climbing to her home is for most of the characters but in particular for Madame Rose herself like ascending the Calvary To me the most striking personality in this gallery is the angel like Madame Lola a travesty who defends herself as a prostitute who was a former boxer in Senegal and who is uite successful in her career being able to provide intermittent but needed assistance to Madame Rose and her cares After such a memorable read I am looking forward to discovering of Gary s voices and may be I will unearth which one I had already read in one of those past Summers
