Reading - Oscar and the Lady in Pink

Oscar and the Lady in Pink by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt

Oscar is ill and no one, especially not his parents, will tell him what he already knows: that he is dying. Granny Rose, the oldest of the 'ladies in pink' who visit Oscar and his fellow patients, makes friends with him. She suggests that he play a game : to pretend that each of the following twelve days is a decade of his imagined future. 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, uplifting.

Oscar and the Lady in Pink is a small fable with a big heart, it will change the way you about death, and about life.
