Sinopsis: Bruce Lowery won the Prix Riverol for this book - the first American to win this prize given to a foreigner writing in French. This book was originally published in France as "La Cicatrice" to much acclaim. Lowery began living in France under a Fulbright Scholarship and stayed in Paris until he died in 1988 at the age of 57. "This first novel was written by a 29-year-old Nevadan who is the first American to win the Prix Rivarol given to a foreigner writing in French and is here translated by the author. It pictures a few crucial months in the life of Jeff, a thirteen year old, in a small mid-western town. The physical scar left by an operation to repair a hare-lip is symbolic of and, to a certain extent, responsible for the psychic scar inflicted on the boy by his callous schoolmates. Their rejection awakens in Jeff a perversity which causes him to steal from his sole friend. Guilt turns him from the purest love he has ever known or is like to know -- that of his adoring younger brother. When the brother is accidentally killed Jeff's burden of suffering and remorse is all but insupportable. Without the pathos such a theme might have produced, this, in its discipline, is most moving." Kirkus Reviews
