Ernesto is 7 year old. One day he comes back from school and tells his mum: “Je ne retournerai plus à l’école, parce qu’à l’école on m’apprend des choses que je ne sais pas - I'm never going back to that place ! Because at school they teach me things that I don't know!"”.
Marguerite Duras wrote this book in 1972. Impossible not to think a lot!
