Riassunto: A Garden of Thorns is Roger de Anfrasio's true story of survival during World War II. Roger was only nine years old when the German army invaded and occupied Dijon, France, his home town. He struggles to understand food rations, and fellow citizens who become traitors or resort to prostitution. At age 13, he becomes a junior agent performing reconnaisance missions for the French resistance. While vividly describing World War II, A Garden of Thorns is ultimately Roger's (and France's) story of survival, endurance, and recovery.
L'autore: Roger de Anfrasio was born in Dijon, France in 1930. In 1943, he began an apprenticeship at Henri Debrosse Coiffeurs Hommes et Dames, where he learned his trade grooming the German soldiers who occupied his home city during World War II. In 1957, he emigrated to Montreal, and in 1963, he won the Worldwide Hair Stylists Competition in Boston. A year later, Roger opened Coiffure Masculine in New York City. In 1970, he co-authored The History of Hair with Ann Charles. Currently he cuts hair at Dominique Salon in New York City's Pierre Hotel.
