Amazing portrait of prison life,
This review is from: Miracle of the Rose (Paperback)
Exploration of the aspirations of young people in France and the portaits of them when incarcerated in Mettray and Fontevrault. The prose is quite watery but the descriptive power quite amazing. A nuanced portrayal of men in prison and their inner lives. It is an extraordinary subtle book which touches on music, dress and identity. The contextual skills are sublime. Jean Genet is a true artist.
