Description

Bambi and Me consists of 12 autobiographical pieces about how movies shaped the young life of Michel Tremblay, one of their biggest fans. Among others, he talks about Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, Orphée and the Night Visitors and about how each led to his discovery of his emerging emotional sensibilities as a child and an adolescent. In the piece that gives the book its title, he writes: “Did you cry as much as I did at the death of Bambi’s mother? Personally, I’ve never got over it.”

Bursting with wit, charm, and the profound resonance of youthful self-discovery, Bambi and Me provides Tremblay’s many fans with a clear sense of the origins of the talent which has made Michel Tremblay one of the most important and fascinating playwrights and novelists of the 20th century.
