Join novelists Édouard Louis and Teju Cole for the launch in the US of Louis’s international bestselling debut, The End of Eddy (FSG).
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 Marguerite Duras, 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.
In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
