Journal d'un enfant sage by Jean-Michel Maulpoix

By Jean-Michel Maulpoix

Je saute à pieds joints dans les flaques. N'y voyez pas malice, c'est mon bonheur! J'aurai trois ans en juillet : je marche sur le ciel. Je cours derrière les papillons et bavarde avec les fourmis. Pardonnez-moi si j'arrache les pétales des fleurs et fais tomber les livres de l. a. bibliothèque. Je vide et je remplis. Je construis et détruis. Je fais, puis je défais. J'ai compris qu'en cette vie l'on doit répéter sans cesse les mêmes gestes. Il n'y a pas de dieux au ciel, juste un vieux Père Noël fatigué de ses jouets. Que se passe-t-il dans l. a. tête d'un petit garçon? Pour répondre à cette query, Jean-Michel Maulpoix donne l. a. parole à Louis. Et nous voilà transportés, comme par enchantement, dans le monde inconnu d'un enfant de trois ans, à l. a. fois proche et lointain... brilliant, émouvant, souvent drôle, ce magazine d'une enfant sage est le livre d'un écrivain qui sonde les mystères de l'enfance et celui d'un père qui témoigne de sa tendresse infinie pour son fils.

Five doctors were called. They shaved part of her head and pondered an operation—then declared it unnecessary. These subterfuges worked. Harriet stayed in touch with her love child mainly by correspondence.

Just as she was sorrowing over the fact that Granville’s carriage was not to arrive that night, nor would she hear his knock on the door, she heard a rapping. Then she heard Sheridan’s voice. Claiming later that she did not know why, Harriet recoiled from meeting him. She sent Sally, her maid, to say she was not at home, but Sheridan remonstrated that he had already called twice and been rebuffed. He then promised to haunt the doorway in Cavendish Square until he was received. The door closed. He knocked again, and Harriet sent down word that she was unwell.
