Le père Noël ne fait pas de cadeaux by Adela Turin( Book )

11 editions published between 1977 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le père Noël n'est autre que Nicolas Nicolini, un vaurien, un profiteur, un fanfaron, un être suffisant qui méprise femmes et enfants, un méchant homme, en un mot un homme.

Nous ne pouvons, logiquement, recommander un ouvrage porteur de préjugés, fussent-ils pour ou contre l'un ou l'autre sexe. Ne recommandons pas
