“L’enfance d’Alan” follows the souvenirs of Alan Ingram Cope, who after telling us all his Second WW souvenirs in “La Guerre D’Alan” will now tell us about his childhood in the 1930s and the post 1929 America, a story once again brought to us thanks to the incredible beauty Emmanuel Guibert is only capable of.
