Description

"Growing up in a poor village in northern France, all Eddy Bellegueule wanted was to be a man in the eyes of his family and neighbors. But from childhood, he was different-"girlish," intellectually precocious, and attracted to men. Already translated into twenty languages, The End of Eddy captures the violence and desperation of life in a French factory town, where the Far Right has channeled class solidarity into rage, racism, and homophobia. This first novel is also a sensitive, universal portrait of boyhood and sexual awakening. Like Karl Ove Knausgaard and Marguerite Duras, Edouard Louis writes from his own undisguised experience, but he writes with an openness and a compassionate intelligence that are all his own. The result-a critical and popular triumph-has made him the most celebrated French writer of his generation."
