This book is a personal depiction of France in the 1960's. As a unique social and historical document, it constitutes an original contribution to the field of comparative cultural studies. The sixties were a particularly significant decade for French intellectual life and social history, redefining cultural values and ushering radical transformations in literature, politics and art. This work is the author's recounting of his growing up and coming-of-age in France. From the privileged environment of an eccentric Parisian family, it follows the rebellious protagonist behind the walls of incarcerating boarding schools, before he runs away to England at the age of fifteen. On through college and medical school, the book paints a diversified landscape of French social mores, with the successes and failures of a unique and at times repressive educational system. The book will allow scholars and general readers to discover the contrasts of a French education within the framework of a suspenseful and decidedly unorthodox memoir.
