Terra Amata

Terra Amata

J. M. G. Le Clézio


For Chancelade, the area is teeming with attractiveness, ask yourself and chances. From a small boy taking part in at the seashore, via his early life and his past love, to the loss of life of his father and directly to the tip of his personal lifestyles, he relishes the main minute information of his actual atmosphere - even if a grain of sand, an insect or a blade of grass - as he trips on a sensory event from cradle to grave.
