À propos

TRANSLATION from FRENCH Before I had a chance to rebel against the world of my childhood, that world rebelled against me. In truth, confronting my parents, my social class, its poverty, racism and brutality came second. From early on I provoked shame and even disgust from my family and others around me. The only option I had was to get away somehow. This book is an effort to understand all that.

Édouard Louis grew up in Hallencourt, a village in northern France where many live below the poverty line. His bestselling debut novel about life there, It HAS SPARKED DEBATE on SOCIAL INEQUALITY, SEXUALITY and VIOLENCE.

It is AN EXTRAORDINARY PORTRAIT of ESCAPING from an UNBEARABLE CHILDHOOD, inspired by the authors own. Written with an openness and compassionate intelligence, ultimately, it asks, how can we create our own freedom?
