Description:
Born Eddy Bellegueule in 1992, 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, 'The End of Eddy,' has been translated into 20 languages, and has made him the most celebrated French writer of his generation. '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?
