Little Louis is the illegitimate child of a buxom street vendor in one of the most sinister neighborhoods of Paris. He is a small and delicate boy. His mother, though promiscuous, is not vicious but warm and vital, and Louis is deeply attached to her. Masterfully, the author exposes the gradual unfolding of a singularly gifted man. 024025
