My Fathers Glory My Mothers Castle: Marcel Pagnols Memories of Childhood

from the manufacturer

Bathed in the warm clarity of the summer sun in Provence, Marcel Pagnols childhood memories celebrate a time of rare beauty and delight. Called by Jean Renoir the leading film artist of his age, Pagnol is best known for such films as The Bakers Wife, Harvest, Fanny, and Topaze, as well as the screen adaptations of his novels Jean de Florette and Manon of the Springs (North Point, 1988). But he never forgot the magic of his Provencal childhood, and when he set his memories to paper late in life the result was a great new success. My Fathers Glory and My Mothers Castle appeared on the scene like a fresh breeze, captivating readers with its sweet enchantments. Pagnol recalls his days hunting and fishing in the hill country, his jaunts about Marseilles, his schoolboy diversions, and above all his family: his anticlerical father and sanctimonious uncle, his mild and beautiful mother, and many others. This bright and lively book sparkles with the charm and magic that were Marcel Pagnols own.
