    I haven't read this withing years of my review please keep this in mind But what I remember was brilliantAm I biased to stories written in child perspective than completely satirize adult society? Yes But because it's amazing And this collection of prayers is perfect in its use of the device If you're Canadian you'll probably feel this in your soul

    Prayers of a Very Wise Child by Roch Carrier This English translation retains the French uebecois flavor so necessary to the depiction of rural uebec through the eyes of a seven year old boy The method of showing his thoughts through various titled prayers to God works smoothly and naturally Carrier avoids the tedium often found in letter type novels I enjoyed this very much

  4. says:

    Roch Carrier is what might be called a National Treasureif only uebecois might agreeand if the term wasn't overused This story a coming of age account of a young man in uebec as seen through his spiritual development is charming filled with wisdom and a fair amount of mischief making

    Loved these 'contes' or vignettes written by a great French Canadian author I expected them to be a bit preachy and religious but was delighted with the child like innocence of ones such as 'Titties Prayer' in which he thanks God for letting him get his first eyeful I howled with laughter
