Excerpt from The Little King
At rise of the curtain, Jeanne Marie, with a dish in her hand, stands by a larger table where three people have just finished a light meal. She is a squat woman of fifty with thick features and a blotched face. While she clears the table, she talks with Barelle, appar ently a middle-aged stonemason, who is mix ing mortar with his trowel near the window.
