Product description

Review

An intense and uncomfortably thrilling book, which uses the harrowing events of that Christmas Eve as a basis for a wider exploration of class, race and individualism... a novel that is unflinching in its examination of class and discrimination. -- Tash Aw * Times Literary Supplement * [A] heartbreaking novel... I find myself captivated by Edouard Louis's books and his raw honesty. -- John Boyne * Irish Times * [A] harrowing piece of autofiction... History of Violence is a slim but densely layered novel that begins with raw urgency. -- Johanna Thomas-Corr * The Times * [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 * Louis's greatest strength as a writer is that he feels things so passionately, sometimes to the point of obsession, but that he also has a philosophical turn of mind that explores, rather than neutralises, his feelings. -- Edmund White * Guardian * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
