"With great warmth and understanding, [Simenon] tells the poignant story of a unique little slum boy and, with charm and meticulous detail, he recreates the whole colorful ere of Paris in the 1890's, capturing the spirit of the time of Lautrec, the early Picasso, Braque, and Matisse." Described as Simenon's favorite novel, of the hundreds he wrote. Translated from the French by Bernard Frechtman.; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
