Oscar and the Lady in Pink by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'My name is Oscar, I'm ten years old...They call me Egghead, I look about seven, I live in hospital because of my cancer and I've never written to you because I don't even know if you exist,' writes Oscar to God. Oscar is ill, and no one, especially not his parents, can tell him what he already knows: that he is dying. Granny Rose, the oldest of the 'ladies in pink' who come to visit the patients, makes friends with Oscar. She suggests that he play a game: to pretend that each of the following twelve days is a decade of his imaginary life. One day equals ten years, and every night Oscar writes a letter to God telling him about his life. The ten letters that follow are sensitive, funny, heartbreaking and, ultimately, life-affirming. Oscar and the Pink Lady is a small fable with a very big heart.
