Synopsis

Read our exclusive interview with Edouard Louis, in which he discusses the nature of violence, the ways in which he is and is no longer 'Eddy' and why he would rather talk about issues than paragraphs.





'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.' Edouard Louis grew up in Hallencourt, a village in northern France where many live below the poverty line. His bestselling debut novel about life there, The End of Eddy, has sparked debate on social inequality, sexuality and violence. It is an extraordinary portrait of escaping from an unbearable childhood, inspired by the author's own. Written with an openness and compassionate intelligence, ultimately, it asks, how can we create our own freedom?

Customer Reviews

Well written , profound and challenging. The book gives you an almost sociological sense of the impact of deprivation on views and behaviours in a rarely visible part of French society. For those of us who lead more privelaged lives, this kind of book is a wake-up call. Only read it though if you have a strong stomach.
