Gavroche

February 14, 2007

Young street urchin from Hugo’s Les Miserables.  He’s the heart of the novel.  At some point the narrator explains one of Gavroche’s statements by saying “Gavroche was a thinker, you see.”  It doesn’t sound like much here, but 800 pages into the novel you’re rooting for the kid and you love it when he shows back up.
