About the Book

[This book is written in French.] "Un silence pesant crasait le rfectoire. Seules le troublaient par instants, les louches heurtant les grosses assiettes de fa ence brches par l'usage. Les serveuses en tablier gris distribuaient une gale mesure de pois casss ?tous les pupilles." Rcit autobiographique, Les Hauts Murs racontent son enfance misrable et vagabonde, de l'orphelinat ?la maison de correction. "A heavy silence weighed down on the dining hall. Alone in disturbing it, at times, were dubious characters knocking together large earthenware plates chipped from long use. Waiters in gray aprons were dishing out an equal portion of split peas to all of the pupils." An autobiographical account, The High Walls tells of his miserable and vagabond childhood, from orphanage to reformatory.
