Synopsis: À l'aube de la vie, le narrateur se fait une promesse : ces années qui l'attendent, il les déposera aux pieds de sa mère pour réparer toutes les souffrances qu'elle a endurées. Il tâchera de combler tous ses désirs et de compenser par la gloire les humiliations que cette Russe immigrée, seule et sans un sou, a dû subir pour pouvoir déposer avec fierté, tous les jours, le bifteck du déjeuner dans l'assiette de son fils unique et adoré, ne se réservant que le gras de la cuisson. Avec admiration, humour et lucidité, ce fils fait le récit de leur parcours de la Pologne à la France. Ce roman autobiographique, qui s'appuie sur un langage poétique d'une grande pudeur, est un élan prolongé d'amour, et peut-être de rancoeur d'avoir été trop aimé. De la carrière militaire et diplomatique de Gary à sa réussite littéraire en passant par ses rapports humains, tout est vu à la lumière de l'amour de cette mère au caractère entier, émouvant, mais également envahissante et insupportable. Au seuil de sa vie, le narrateur aura donc respecté son serment ; mais la vie, elle, n'aura pas tenu parole, ne comblant jamais le vide que l'absence de cette mère formidable aura laissé dans la poitrine du héros. --Sana Tang-Léopold --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Poche .

About the Author: A best-selling author in France and a two-time winner of the Prix Goncourt, Romain Gary wrote in both French and English and under the pseudonyms Emile Ajar Gary and Fosco Sinibaldi. Best known for "Lady L, The Life Before Us, Promise at Dawn: A Memoir," and "The Roots of Heaven," he published his first novel, "L'education europeenne," when he was 31. His film, "Les Oiseaux vont mourir au Perou," was banned by the Cinema Control Commission. Gary committed suicide in Paris in 1980.
