    Already translated into twenty languages, The End of Eddy captures the violence and desperation of life in a French factory town. It is also a sensitive, universal portrait of boyhood and sexual awakening. Like Karl Ove Knausgaard or Edmund White, Édouard 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.

    J'ai rencontré Reda un soir de Noël. Je rentrais chez moi après un repas avec des amis, vers quatre heures du matin. Il m'a abordé dans la rue et j'ai fini par lui proposer de monter dans mon studio. Ensuite, il m'a raconté l'histoire de son enfance et celle de l'arrivée en France de son père, qui avait fui l'Algérie. Nous avons passé le reste de la nuit ensemble, on discutait, on riait. Vers six heures du matin, il a sorti un revolver et il a dit qu'il allait me tuer

    The radical and urgent new novel from the author of The End of Eddy. I met Reda on Christmas Eve 2012. I was going home after a meal with friends, at around four in the morning. He approached me in the street, and finally I invited him up to my apartment. He told me the story of his childhood and how his father had come to France, having fled Algeria. We spent the rest of the night together, talking, laughing. At around 6 o'clock, he pulled out a gun and said he was going to kill me. He insulted me, strangled and raped me. The next day, the medical and legal proceedings began.
