  • Edouard Louis [is] the vanguard of France’s new generation of political writers

    Evening Standard
  • Edouard Louis… speaks with an emotional authenticity and a stylistic confidence that is hard to ignore

  • This short work tackles the intersections of class, gender and sexuality... Louis gives voice to the way the cruel, crude hegemony of masculinity has essentially destroyed his father’s life, making him “as much a victim of the violence” he inflicted as of the violence he endured

  • This valuable tale brings emotion to a discussion led by numbers, encouraging us to remember the real human lives affected by policy and political point-scoring

    Financial Times
  • To understand what is happening now in France, or indeed, all over Europe, this is an essential text

    Irish Times
