Man to the gate of heaven a wife s love can rag him back to the Orchard Valley Grooms depths of hellTouche Gary was enchanting as a man a real poseur as they say in French and as a writer and nothing can put you under his spell than this autobiography The novel is focussed on the impressive but also suffocating figure of his mother who sacrificed her life for him getting her family out of Soviet occupied Latvia and building up a new life in France But she also continuallyrove him beyond the limit at least that is what this book suggests The novel is a real gem because of the layer of humour and the beautiful lived through storytelling But the pedantic fringes the exagerated worldly wisdoms and the egocentric focus of Gary regularly cause irritation He can so overdo it that one can uestion his credibility Anyway I love his style so much he writes the most melodic French that I can forgive him his Croma Venture: The Spiral Wars, Book 5 defaults I m so glad that I finally got to

during the Second World War La promessee l aube the promise made to his mother in the beginning that he would fulfil her Broken Prophecy dreams That promise narrowed his path but it also served as the ultimate motivation when others around him gave up He understood the attitude of the French capitulation and acknowledged that they were right to arrange themselves in order to stay alive but they were right in the same way Van Gogh would have been right to take aecent job and to stop painting Romain Gary could not give up as he had to keep the promise he made to his headstrong embarrassing

dramatic life The successes of Gary s career a prize winning novelist an officer who was brave against the enemies of France in WW2 and aiplomat for the French government were all worked out from early childhood through collusion with her ambitious fantasies for his fate She outdoes the grip of McCourt s mom his Silent Confessions development in Angela s Ashes and is persistently indelible than Jeanette Wells mother in The Glass Castle Yet here we get a prolonged testament of the beneficence of her love through his life which puts it in league with the positive testament of McBride s The Color of Water A Black Man s Tribute to His White Mother The tradeoff for Gary comes in theiscovery much later of not being able to achieve a comparable nurturing and inspiration through love relationships as a mature adult You can t help looking for the psychopathology in this bond but often I was swept along with the sentimental and heroic aspects of the story We start with him in his 40s inexplicably on a beach in Big Sur California about 1960 where he A Texas Holiday Miracle dwells on his sense of isolation and seeking the womb like balm he often gets from the sea He can t help

a certain level of success running a consignment shop and then after a move to Warsaw the 74 Seaside Avenue development of a store selling fake Paris fashions The lure of France becomes big for both of them and soon her approach to bankruptcy after expensive treatments of Romain s kidneyisease leads them to gamble on a move to Nice She makes enough with a lot of sacrifice to get him a Catholic

your mother s love life makes you a promise at the A Southern Reunion dawn of life that it will never keep You will go hungry to the end of youraysDespite this smothery theme there was a lot of fun and vibrant life in Gary s portrayal of scenes from his life along the way rendered alternatingly in poignant or comic tones His helping his mother to make Income His Learning To Deal his learning to Let It Go deal bullies at school his inspiration from mentors of his mind and writing and hisogged persistence in getting through the rigors and cruelty of aviation training school Then his separation

Gaulle in exile in England to flee and fight on first in Morocco and then with the Allies from a base in England Only 5 of 50 in his group of foreign exiles survived the war He kept up his writing and published his first novel by the end of the war After the war in parallel to his work in the iplomatic corps his writing of a range of novels earned him two Prix Concourt awards Roots of Heaven 1958 The Life Before Us 1975 both of which were made into films Gary s use of *Humor Makes His Memoirs A Special Treat Ranging From Slapstick *makes his memoirs a special treat ranging from slapstick low humor on one end to refined self mockery and satirical lashings of humans in general on the other Beyond the frame of this book Gary got ivorced from his first wife and soon married the talented and troubled actress Jean Seberg with whom he had a son He got involved in Hollywood scriptwriting eg The Longest Day as well as adaptations of his own book Wiki surprises me by informing me that Gary challenged Clint Eastwood to a Toward a Better Life duel for having an affair with his wife She committed suicide in France in 1979 and heid so a year later leaving a note that claimed a lack of connection to his choice Success in his life I guess Die Konigreiche Israel Und Juda Im 9. Jahrhundert V. Chr. did not guarantee aurable happiness His talent in telling a story well lives on I read this or less alongside to Nabokov s The Real Life of Sebastian Knight There are some obvious parallels between the two writers or may be the situation since both were Russians who left soon after the 1917. 'Promise at Dawn' begins as the story of a mother's sacrifice Alone and poor she fights fiercely to give her son the very best Gary chronicles his childhood with her in Russia Poland and on the French Rivi. ,
Revolution where fifteen years apart Gary was the younger and who then wrote in the language of the country countries where they livednationalized And in both books we are presented with some sort of biographical account Nabokov s is a literary unveiling of the trappings of this genre while Gary s is presented at face value There the similarities end Gary s is a true to life memoir of his youth under the persistent guidance of an utterly Schaums Outline of Microbiology, Second Edition devoted mother The book is really an homage to her She was unmarried and Gary provides just a little information about his father married and with children on his side This further supports the strength andetermination of the woman of Jewish origins We follow Gary as they moved to Poland first in Vilnius and then in Warsaw until they can finally move to France to the Provence coast Gary grew under the hammering conviction that La France was the greatest of all countries the model of civility for the rest of the world We are therefore far away from the world of cynical Nabokov For a tenderness and unuestioned love permeates the pages of this book Granted this ever loving and admiring mother at times became oppressive to a male youth embarrassing him in front of neighbours or worse in front of military companions with the uncontrolled emanation of praise for her After the Rubicon dear and incomparable son But Gary neveroubts the bottomless love from her mother which A Prescription for Murder does succeed in guiding him through hisifficult life She was indeed a promise at awn for himOne memorable aspect is that as Gary was choosing the paths in his life he says that behind all his strivings to grow under and evelop within one of the arts and he had a hand in music in painting in Accounting for Taste dancing until finally writing paved his way there was always a moral goal Behind his aesthetic longings there was always the ingrained belief that through art or may be behind the art there was the aspiration of a better and just world a happier one He was an idealist What surprised me and made me rethink about my earlier impression of his La vieevant soi view spoiler A book that he published under a pseudonym mile Ajar and which brought him a second Goncourt prize in theory this prize can be given only once to a single author It was not after his suicide and the note he left that the identity behind the Ajar authorship was revealed hide spoiler Funny lots of self mockery at times moving fast paced interesting And beautiful style What s not to like This was not the first time I ve read a memoir written by a man where the story revolves not only around himself but also around his mother I still remember reading Nicholas Gage s Eleni where I had the urge to go to Greece and visit the grave of Eleni Mr Gage s mother Frank McCourt s mother wasn t ead yet at the end of Angela s Ashes but the story was well crafted and she was so heroic there that I wasted no time finding out what happened later in Tis In both Eleni and Angela s Ashes the power was in the stories themselves Of course both Messrs Gage and McCourt are excellent writers and one can say that even the best plot if narrated badly ends up an insipid tale not worth #telling But Promise at Dawn may be an exception to this I feel that even #But Promise at Dawn may be an exception to this I feel that even less than sterling narration would not be able to mess up the great story that is *in here It has the tragedy of Eleni the humor of Angela s Ashes the pathos of both
