Reviews

"- `[B]oth brave and ambitious in its determination never to let its reader, or its author, escape lightly the damaging realities it describes" -- Tim Adams * Observer *
"Once more, Edouard Louis has given us something unique; a book so direct, shocking and moving it is like holding live fire in one's hands as the pages turn. Like all great writers, he shows us something of the self so that we might better understand something of the world." -- Andrew McMillan
"In this moving autobiographical novel . . . Louis's visceral story captures the overwhelming emotional impact and complicated shame of surviving sexual assault." * Publishers Weekly *
