Il n'y a pas eu préméditation de ma part : en écrivant ces récits, je croyais me livrer seulement au plaisir de conter. Ce fut en relisant le recueil que je m'aperçus de son unité d'inspiration : mes démons familiers m'ont une fois de plus empêché de partir en vacances. Mes airs amusés et ironiques ne tromperont personne : le phénomène humain continue à m'effarer et à me faire hésiter entre l'espoir de quelque révolution biologique et de quelque révolution tout court.

A classic of modern French literature, the thrilling real-life story of the military hero, ambassador, ladies man, writer, and loving son I grew up longing for the day when I could tear down the veil of darkness and absurdity concealing the true face of the universe and discover at last a smile of kindness and wisdom; I grew up in the certitude that one day I should help my fellow men to wrest the world from our enemies and give back the earth to those who ennoble it with their courage and warm it with their love. 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. Romain Gary chronicles his childhood in Russia, Poland, and on the French Riveria; he recounts his adventurous life as a young man fighting for France in World War II. But above all he tells the story of the love for his mother that was his very life—their secret and private planet, their wonderland “born out of a mother’s murmur into a child’s ear, a promise whispered at dawn of future triumphs and greatness, of justice and love.”

Dans un souterrain peuplé de squelettes, le jeune Tulipe cherche la sortie. En chemin, il dialogue avec des morts aussi effrayants que grotesques : trois sœurs maquerelles régissent un bordel d’outre-tombe, des flics tabassent un prévenu jusqu’à le rendre "tricolore", un poilu avoue avoir laissé sa place à un Allemand dans la tombe du Soldat inconnu... Sous l’influence de Poe, Céline ou Jarry, ce premier roman inédit écrit à dix-neuf ans dépeint la société de l’après-guerre et la crise des années trente. Le Vin des morts, signé Romain Kacew, ne quittera jamais les poches de Romain Gary et lui servira de vivier pour écrire les romans d’Émile Ajar.

A NOVEL OF DESPERATE LOVE, BITTER HOPE, CHILLING COURAGE AND RELENTLESS BRAVERY “THIS quietly terrible parable for our times was first published in France fifteen years ago and was awarded the Prix de Critiques. It was translated into fourteen languages, but not into English. Since then M. Gary has won international fame with several other books. Now an entirely rewritten and, M. Gary hopes, a much improved version of A EUROPEAN EDUCATION is published in English for the first time. “A too hasty glance at A EUROPEAN EDUCATION might give the impression that no novel has ever borne a more sadly ironical title, because this is a story of innocence ‘educated’ in all the horrors and atrocities of modern war. But some of the graduates of the twentieth century’s school of despair learned something other than the subjects taught. They learned that man’s dream of freedom, of dignity and of love, is immortal; that his faith in a future without hatred cannot be destroyed.”—Orville Prescott in THE NEW YORK TIMES “A EUROPEAN EDUCATION is a story of unmitigated privation and terror. But it is also the story of the human heart’s triumph over evil even in the exercise of evil. “A EUROPEAN EDUCATION is about a group of partisans called the ‘green ones’ because they live in the forests of Poland. They hide in caves, steal food and sabotage every effort of the Germans. “Before the book ends, the hero has become a man; he has killed; he has learned how to steal without being caught, how to make friends with the Germans whom he intends to kill, and how to love. “The title is inherent in Janek’s bitter summing up of what he has learned; ‘...all this European education comes down to is to teach you how to find the courage to shoot a man who sits there with lowered head....’ “This may not be Romain Gary’s most popular book, but it is a little masterpiece and may prove to be his.”—THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

L'affaire homme réunit pour la première fois en un volume de nombreux textes de Romain Gary publiés entre 1957 - époque des Racines du ciel- et 1980, l'année de sa mort. Certains de ces textes, inconnus du public français, sont traduits de l'anglais. Il ne s'agit pas de textes de fiction, mais de prises de position, de commentaires, de réflexions et d'analyses ayant pour objet la société, l'homme, la femme, le monde comme il va- et bien souvent comme il ne va pas du tout. Gary, de fait, ne se contentait pas de s'exprimer publiquement par le biais de l'écriture romanesque on du cinéma. Présent dans la presse française et américaine, constamment interviewé, sollicité, préfacier de lui-même parfois, des autres occasionnellement, Gary n'a pas cessé de réagir aux événements de son siècle en manifestant à chaque fois son attachement à ce principe exposé par lui au début des années cinquante : " Je ne puis défendre que mes contradictions, mes approximations, le doute qui me garde, mes vérités incertaines et mes erreurs fraternelles et il v a autour de nous, entre la vérité et l'erreur, une marge de relativité qui nous permettra toujours d'échapper à l'absurde, une marge suffisante pour y insérer notre désir triomphant.
