By Jules Vallès

Dédié à tous ceux qui, " pendant leur enfance, furent tyrannisés par leurs maîtres ou rossés par leurs mom and dad ", le livre fait scandale : en relatant le quotidien d'un jeune garçon d'alors, Vallès y brosse un tableau impitoyable de deux associations vénérées, los angeles famille et l'école. Véritable cri d'insoumission, cette œuvre initia un débat autour des droits de l'enfant, à l'époque quasi inexistants ; elle inspira des générations d'écrivains, de Jules Renard à Louis-Ferdinand Céline, et fut saluée à sa sortie par Zola, qui écrivit : " Je désire qu'on lise ce livre. Si j'ai quelque autorité, je demande qu'on le lise, par amour du expertise et de l. a. vérité. Les œuvres de cette puissance sont rares. Quand il en paraît une, il faut qu'elle soit mise dans toutes les mains. "
