Pour avoir été son voisin rue de Lyon, son camarade d'école, et l'avoir ainsi fréquenté de dix à dix-huit ans, Abel Paul Pitous (1913-2005), son precise contemporain, gardait des pictures précises de cette époque. Son témoignage, que l'on vient de retrouver, consigné dans les années soixante-dix, ressuscite donc pour los angeles première fois non seulement les lieux d'enfance de Camus, mais aussi un peu de l. a. vie des gens qui l'entouraient et qui comptèrent tant pour lui : sa mère, son oncle sourd et muet, son instituteur, et cette flopée de copains tous passionnés de soccer.
Autant de souvenirs qui restituent aujourd'hui d'une manière formidablement proche et touchante le climat dans lequel Camus a grandi et s'est émancipé.
