Vie devant soi de Romain Gary (Émile Ajar)

Post a comment. La Vie devant soi involves Madame Rosa, a now retired prostitute for thirty-five years who takes in children born to prostitutes in the immigrant area of Belleville. Madame Rosa is a poverty-stricken Jew in her late sixties, and the other main character in the novel is the ten-year-old Arab Mohammed, usually called Momo. In spite of the religious and general cultural differences of their birth, Momo is devoted to Madame Rosa, to the point of looking after her when she starts to grow senile and have attacks of madness, paranoid that the Germans in the s will come to take her back to Auschwitz. Momo sticks with her to the end, even cleaning her when she becomes incontinent, even shielding her from Doctor Katz when he wants her to die in an institution and she chooses to die in a cellar which she secretly claims as a kind of second home. Momo, who has developed a new maturity on discovering that his real age is fourteen and that Madame Rosa has sought to keep him for as long as possible, does all he can to see that her last wishes are fulfilled.


Romain Gary ‘La Vie Devant Soi’

Romain Gary was a man obsessed with the question of identity, the choice of identity, the concealment of identity, his own above all. He was bom Roman Kacew in in Vilnius, Lithuania, but he stated or permitted it be stated about him that his birth took place either in Moscow or Nice. Thus, Gary was Lithuanian, but possibly Russian by ancestry, as well as Polish, though he became French while still a very young man, just as his mother had desired for him more than anything else. He never knew any father, and this absence had a very profound impact on his very complicated life. Jewish by heritage, Gary never practiced any religion, though he acknowledged having always had "un grand faible pour Jesus" Sungolowsky


Identity and marginalization in Romain Gary's La vie devant soi and Moshe Mizrahi's Madame Rosa

It won the Prix Goncourt in 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 seventh floor of an apartment building in Belleville , a district of Paris. In their apartment building, Madame 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. The book deals with several themes, including euthanasia, prostitution, the effects of the Holocaust, immigration and aging.
