Poum and Alexandre

by Catherine de Saint Phalle

A Paris memoir like no other.

Reviewed by Ben at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:
This book is a wonderful expression of love. I can’t decide who I love more here, the elegant, reclusive Poum or the wild-minded resistance man Alexandre. Every page of this delightful memoir bubbles with their Parisian eccentricities. Theirs is a world of emperors and adventures with Homer and the Magna Carta.

What makes this story really sing is Catherine’s own journey within the tale towards understanding her flawed family world and her place within the chaos. Growing and flowering throughout the work is her own undying love for her unique guardians, Poum and Alexandre.
