We Are 17 & Les Copains

The book We are 17 (1955) caused quite a stir. For the first time, the lives of youngsters was documented in so much detail. They smoked pipe, drank wine, philosophised about the future. Critics spoke of a ‘doomed generation’. Sixty years later the book is published again, next to a new book with recently discovered pictures.
