This chapter describes the house of the author in Oran, Algeria. The author lived in 11A rue Daumas, in the Saint Michel neighborhood, where they occupied an official apartment in the Marcellin Berthelot, a girls' school. The building had twin adjoining courtyards, each with a covered area, twin classroom wings, and apartments for two principals. They had a private entrance with the street number 11A where most pupils entered the school. Next to the door at the ground level was a cellar, which the author's father soon turned into a garage, and where he had installed a concrete floor. The imposing doorway alongside the garage gave onto a broad straight staircase leading to a hallway. The chapter proceeds to examine other parts of the author's house such as the garden, his parents' bedroom, and their kitchen.
