Two children, strangers, wait in a house in Paris: Leopold for his mother, whom he has never seen, and Henrietta for a train. Upstairs an old woman lies dying and her daughter flutters round her. The author exposes the apprehensions of the children and the reasons for their presence in the house.Biografía del autor:
