Inhalt
»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.«- 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 sparked debate on social inequality, homosexuality, homophobia, and violence. It is a 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?
