I might not like Communists as much as some of my cousins in Sweden, but I do appreciate when they write sonorous, sensitive, and sensuous poetry about little things and people. Writing on pains and joys of Paris also warms my heart these days. Channeling Prevert, Mayakovsky, and Neruda does not hurt. Plus, anyone who can make me believe that a child could mistake a mathematical problem for a rose is an instant winner. The book is a facing-page bilingual edition, what more could you want?
