L'Africain, par J.M.G. Le Clézio

Récit personnel par le gagneur du Prix Nobel 2008. « J'ai longtemps rêvé que ma mère était noire. Je m'étais inventé une histoire, un passé pour fuir la réalité à mon retour d'Afrique, dans ce pays, dans cette ville où je ne connaissais personne, où j'étais devenu un étranger. Puis j'ai découvert, lorsque mon père, à l'âge de la retraite, est revenu vivre avec nous en France, que c'était lui l'africain. Cela a été difficile à admettre. Il m'a fallu retourner en arrière, recommencer, essayer de comprendre. »

    C 'etait interessant - les commentaires et les observations des participants m'ont fait penser plus profondement sur la theme d'identite que le Clezio explore dans ce roman

    Easy to read and short. After Le Rouge et le noir, it was wonderful to have a short book to read.

    I have to work on Sunday, but I'm glad to have read this book and had the chance to discover a new author.

    Thank you for the information about ordering the book through European Books and Media on Shattuck. That's a great idea, I ordered it last week.

    Is it easy to park the car there?

      No, it sure ain't, but it can be done. You have to allow 15 minutes at least for driving around to find a spot on the street, and the spot you find may be several blocks away. Sharing a ride is good if possible. Some people take BART and then the N-Judah trolley, which stops right in front of the restaurant. The place has other really nice things about it, but parking ease is not one of them.
