Synopsis

`A brilliant novel... courageous, necessary and deeply touching' Guardian Edouard Louis grew up in 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? `A mesmerising story about difference and adolescence' New York Times `Edouard Louis...is that relatively rare thing - a novelist with something to say and a willingness to say it, without holding back' The Times `Louis' book has become the subject of political discussion in a way that novels rarely do' Garth Greenwell, New Yorker

Staff Choice

This is the novel I have always wanted to write but lacked the ability and courage to do so. Refusing to either sentimentalise or caricature, Louis has created a portrait of modern working class life, and of growing up gay within it, that is both uncompromising and heartbreaking. Representing life outside of what we would now call "the bubble", The End of Eddy has provoked strong reactions on the continent. It is, I think, a classic of our era's literature.
