Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Child's Point of View Carrier fictionalizes the intriguing French and English conflicts in his short stories using a boy's viewpoint. He exposes the dicriminatory attitude and lack of communication between French and English and the effect of English repression and Quiet Revolut'n. The causes of xenophobia, euphemism in French community, effects of religious authority, and many other issues are also depicted.
