    My absolute favourite French book. Words fail me on this one, it just transported me elsewhere and stayed with me years after I read it. The story is narrated by a young child, and Ajar truly catches the essence of childhood, the illogical, literal and innocent perspective is dead-on, and you truly feel like you experience the world through his eyes. Mesmerising, absolutely magical and full of soul.

    I never wanted it to end and will reread it every time my life needs a little more joy, a little

    Que génio, Sr. Romain Gary! Obrigada!

    “Madame Rosa had gray hair that was falling too, because it had stopped caring very much one way or the other. She was scared to death of going bald, it's an awful thing for a woman who hasn't got much else. She had more ass and bosom than anybody you ever heard of, and when she looked at herself in the glass, she always made a big smile, like she was trying to vamp herself.”

    This is the story of 'Madame Rosa'...a classic French book, written by Romain Gary, an American screenwriter who gained fame as a French writer. He's won many

    literary and honors awards in France.

    There is a a stage play of this story ...I haven't seen it.. but it would be easy to visualize.

    A wonderful evocation of a child's mind and experience.

    Funny, disturbing...sad...honest...unconventional environment.

    This novel touches our heart while captivating our mind. ( a simple tale of many layers).

    This novel touches our heart while captivating our mind. ( a simple tale of many layers).

    No-nonsense wasted words!

    Most of the novel takes place in the apartment of Madame Rosa. She is Jewish,

    an ex-prostitute. obese, and dying.

    The relationship between Momo and Madame Rosa against the most seedy

    conditions is profoundly moving. One does not stop thinking about this book just

    because you've finished reading it.

    The minor characters also memorable.....Dr. Katz, ( Madame Rosa's Doctor), Banania, ( young black boy),

    Monsieur Hamil, ( sold carpets), and Arthur, ( an umbrella--Momo's best friend).

    Quotes:

    "Life can be beautiful except nobody really knows how to make it that way and meanwhile we've got to live".

    "You don't need a reason to be afraid"

    "can somebody live without love?"

    "nightmares are what dreams turn into with age".

    *part of this book was based on the authors life.

    It's very sad that he died so young...leaving a suicide note 'for the press'...in December, 1980.

    Romain Gary was an extraordinary writer.

    One of the most beautiful and optimistic books I have ever read, The Life Before Us is a masterpiece. Romain Gary wrote it under a pseudonym, Emile Ajar, and thus became to only person to win the French Goncourt Prize twice. In fact, it was only after his tragic death that the identity of the mysterious but astounding write Ajar was revealed to by Romain Gary.

    One of the most beautiful and optimistic books I have ever read, The Life Before Us is a masterpiece. Romain Gary wrote it under a pseudonym, Emile Ajar, and thus became to only person to win the French Goncourt Prize twice. In fact, it was only after his tragic death that the identity of the mysterious but astounding write Ajar was revealed to by Romain Gary.

    The story is told my Momo, an infant of prostitution in an illegal boarding house run by the aging Madame Rosa, well past her prime but who still "defended herself" from time to time. Momo lives with other children of prostitutes and is a fount of wisdom and consciousness that - despite his hilarious vocabulary of words used in the wrong sense but which reveal even more about his sensibility - surprises and amuses us at every turn of the page:

    "The first thing I can tell you is that we lived on the 6th floor without an elevator and for Madame Rosa with all those pounds she carried on only two legs, it was a real source of daily life, with all its worried and pains." (p.1)

    "i believe that the injust sleep the best because they don't give a shit, while the righteous cannot close their eyes and feel guilty about everything." (p. 39)

    "'It is not necessary to have reasons to be scared, Momo'

    That is something I never forgot because it is the truest thing i ever heard." (p.63)

    "I think that to live, you need to start young, because later you lose all your value and nobody will give you a break." (p.88)

    "I was so happy that I wanted to die because you must seize happiness when it is there before you" (p. 96)

    I could not possibly render justice to the story of Momo and Madame Rosa with Momo's friends Monsieur Hamil and his book of Victor Hugo (which in his dementia he confuses with the Qu'ran), Madame Lolo (the Senegalese ex-boxer transvestite who works the Bois de Boulogne) or the wonderful Nadine...I encourage you - particularly in this dark moment for world politics at the eve of the Drumpftastrophe- to take refuge with Momo and Madame Rosa. Like Momo says in closing the book, "We must love."

    I just loved this short little story. Everything in it could be a favorite quote of mine.

    I think some day I should go back and read it again, just so I can highlight the sentences I love and repeat them to myself like a mantra.

    The Life Before Us (1975; French: La vie devant soi) is a novel by French author Romain Gary who wrote it under the pseudonym of "Emile Ajar". It was originally published in English as Momo then re-published in 1986 as The Life Before Us. It won the Prix Goncourt prize in 1975.

    Momo, a Muslim orphan boy who is about 10 years old, lives under the care of an old Jewish woman named Madame Rosa, who was a prisoner at Auschwitz and later became a prostitute in Paris. Momo's mother abandoned him with Madame Rosa, who is essentially a babysitter for the children of prostitutes. They live on the sixth floor of an apartment building in Belleville, a district of Paris. In their apartment building, Madam Rosa made a small hideout in a cellar, where she keeps artifacts of her Jewish heritage. The young boy tells the story of his life in the orphanage and of his relationship with Madame Rosa as she becomes increasingly sick, culminating with her death, after she had expressed her desire to not die in hospital on life support, saying that she does not want to be a vegetable being forced to live.

First-person narration by a well-meaning, sensitive, street-smart 10-year-old/14-year-old named Momo, whose best friend is a dressed-up umbrella named Arthur and who has too much pride to peddle his ass. Lots of LOL malapropisms (esp. re: "dramatized" and "abortion"), old-fashioned black humor, and general corrupted innocent joyousness that comes off as legit poignancy. No way these people didn't exist: willing suspension of disbelief in full merefreakin' Parisian effect. Readerly affection evoked by author's soulfulness, humor, transparency, and running jokes, pet phrases, silly motifs, tics. Highly recommended to fans of

    -- often reminded me of a distant relation. Read this because it was a highly rated novel translated by Ralph Manheim. The title should just be "Madame Rosa," not the unrememberable "The Life Before Us." Also, I generally cringe when it comes to lit involving kids, especially when it's narrated by them, but now I can add this to the short list of novels narrated by or involving children that don't make me nauseous (

    ; and maybe like Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer?). Of note, the author was married to Jean Seberg, famous short-haired actress in Godard's "Breathless."

    The special thing about "La vie devant soi" is the charming storyteller: the 10-year old Momo, living in Paris, son of a prostitute (which he never knew). He's now living with Mme Rosa, on the sixth floor in a very multicultural district of Paris, in the 1970's. Mme Rosa too is a former prostitute, of jewish descent (she survived Auschwitz).

    The special thing about "La vie devant soi" is the charming storyteller: the 10-year old Momo, living in Paris, son of a prostitute (which he never knew). He's now living with Mme Rosa, on the sixth floor in a very multicultural district of Paris, in the 1970's. Mme Rosa too is a former prostitute, of jewish descent (she survived Auschwitz).

    In his own words Momo describes the very difficult situation of the ageing Rosa, his love and care for her, his conversations with arabs and africans in the neighbourhood. The way he does that is endearing: in a faulty kind of French, registering the challenges and unjust situations in a marginal part of the French capital, and reacting to them in a very wise and disarming way. But then Rosa gets sick, Momo is distressed by the rapidly deteriorating evolution of her condition, but he takes care for her with uttermost tenderness. The outcome is dramatic and hilarious at the same time.

    This is a multi-layered, heartrendering story about aging in a modern city and the innocence of youth. The curious thing is that Gary published this book under the name of Émile Ajar, formally to avoid stereotypical reviews, but at the same time this move is completely in line with the deceitful personality of Gary himself. It won him a second prestigious Goncourt, which normally is accorded just once to an author. Perhaps it's not his best, but it certainly is an endearing read. It shows that even in the midst of the most difficult of times, plain humanity can prevail.
