Product description


A brilliant little book...a touching memoir of sexual awakening, and a gallery of philosophical ideas and characters (Steven Poole The Observer)

A deeply intelligent and searching book, one that makes you re-consider the narrative of your own life and reframe the story you tell yourself... Didier Eribon understands how deep the roots of inequality go (Hilary Mantel)

Returning to Reims played a capital role in my life... I was overwhelmed by this book. I felt I was reading the story of my life. (Edouard Louis)

This is a self-excoriating memoir... [Eribon] writes as someone who has scrubbed hard at the markings of destiny (Marina Benjamin New Statesman)

A stunning book -- vital and important (Andrew McMillan)

Hypnotic ... a gripping read (Daily Telegraph)

Eribon's memoir is fascinating: full of fretful honesty, battling with shame around his background and shame at being ashamed (The Times)

Eribon offers up a magnificent example of an enlightened life liberated by theory, written in a style that deftly moves between the intimate, the social and the political (Annie Ernaux)

A powerful book and one that I enjoyed immensely (Geoffrey Beattie Irish Times)

This is a beautiful book about suppression, losing touch with your roots, and regaining balance (Art in America)

Book Description

The bestselling French memoir of social class, return and loss.
