    Absolutely stunning narrator voice Romain Gary has so many different nuances and pseudonyms that each book is a complete surprise This one is no exception, and it manages the impossible balance of being incredibly brutal and heartbreakingly sweet and amazingly funny.What is the brutal part A young boy grows up with an old lady in Belleville, a poor and crime ridden part of Paris He learns far too early to navigate a world of whores and pimps and drug addicts.What is the sweet part Despite t Absolutely stunning narrator voice Romain Gary has so many different nuances and pseudonyms that each book is a complete surprise This one is no exception, and it manages the impossible balance of being incredibly brutal and heartbreakingly sweet and amazingly funny.What is the brutal part A young boy grows up with an old lady in Belleville, a poor and crime ridden part of Paris He learns far too early to navigate a world of whores and pimps and drug addicts.What is the sweet part Despite the hopelessness of the situation, there is friendship and love and tolerance in the story, where an ex boxer and champion from S n gal can become a caring woman except for some natural limitations who works as a transvestite prostitute but knocks out the dangerous maniacs where a Jewish obese ex prostitute who survived Auschwitz can raise children according to the religion their prostitute pimp parents wish for them where illness and weakness is dealt with because life doesn t forgive What is the funny part The voice of the boy is unbelievable He is so clever and yet so uneducated He knows things most grown ups have never heard of, and yet he misunderstands the words and mixes up the concepts He analyses the world according to Belleville code, and the reader follows in bafflement In the end, there is brutally funny sweetness
