Dominique Bertail tells the story of a life, from infancy to adolescence, from adulthood to old age, from the perspective of an unbreakable friendship between the book’s hero and his own personal Night Man, he who embodies all the hero’s anxieties and most secret desires. With delicate playfulness, images and text speak to us of children’s fears and the trials of adolescence, coming together to tell a story on the difficult art of loving oneself. Entertaining and useful for children, and no less for adults.
