    I'm between 35 and 4 stars so I'll round upWords like affected or effeminate could always be heard in the mouths of adults around me not just at school and not only by the two boys They were like razor blades that would cut me for hours for days when I heard them words I picked up and repeated to myself I told myself over and over that they were right I wished I could change But my body would never obey me and so the insults would start up againEddy Bellegueule a young man growing up in a poor town in northern France is forced to confront how different he is from his peers at an early age While he wants to be viewed as a man as masculine his voice is higher than most his mannerisms are effeminate he is unathletic and not really motivated to try playing sports and as much as he tries he cannot hide his growing attraction to men This spells disaster for a young man among lower class and working class people whose favorite pastimes include drinking getting into fights fighting while drinking and bragging about their sexual conuestsThe sad part is the abuse Eddy takes isn't just at the hands of classmates or fellow townspeople—it comes from his own family who don't understand how or why he is what he is and are embarrassed that someone like him can be tied to them While he hears his parents use racial and cultural slurs constantly he also must get used to his father calling people including him from time to time faggot and other derogatory names It is a depressing life for Eddy; at times he tries valiantly to live along the margins and hopefully go unnoticed and other times he tries to do what will help him pass—find a girlfriend get into fights attempt to have sex But it is difficult for Eddy to escape his true identityAnd yet I had understood that living a lie was the only chance I had of bringing a new truth into existence Becoming a different person meant thinking of myself as a different person believing I was something I wasn't so that gradually step by step I could become it The End of Eddy is nearly relentless in its brutal depiction of a young man coming to terms with his sexuality and his identity in an environment in which being different is not only discouraged but often met with physical violence and emotional abuse This is an autobiographical novel and Édouard Louis brings tremendous emotion to this story of a boy so desperate for approval and love from those around them that he is willing to destroy who he really is just in the hopes that his parents and siblings would treat him differentlyThis was a beautifully written but difficult book to read because it was very bleak but Louis treads carefully in not painting his characters as too black and white; you can see that Eddy's parents just don't know what to make of their son and want to love him but want him to live an easier life tooAt times The End of Eddy was a little emotionally uncomfortable for me It certainly brought back painful memories of adolescence of desperately trying to be normal yet dealing with the slurs of people who wanted to label me because I was different And of course different isn't bad but they didn't see that But while this book is a tough read it does sound a note of hopefulness as well because sometimes the simple act of embracing who you are is what you need to combat those who try and bring you downI don't know if this is a book for everyone but it definitely is one that will make you think and make you feel It made me grateful that I am where I am at this point in my life and while no one's life is 100 percent struggle free it truly does get betterSee all of my reviews at

    As a commentary upon toxic masculinity or white supremacy in France the novel offers little that is new Eddy’s obsession with becoming “a tough guy reads as conventional and at times tired Far interesting is the novel's strange form The first part’s impressionistic focus on the social life of Eddy’s village the second part’s contextualization of Eddy’s coming of age tale within that framework; Louis’s unself conscious blurring of the line between life and art or his tendency to out his intentions as a character and as a writer by explicitly stating them; the obliue epilogue and its subversion of what the reader expects based off the preceding narrative—an ending that emphasizes shame over pride rejection over acceptance

    I just stood there immobile and inert as passive to invoke an expression my sister used and that I borrowed freuently as a ballsack in a tar pitThe End of Eddy Édouard LouisI came away from this read feeling ashamed abused and dirty I never experienced abuse or bullying like this in my life and it broke my heart and yet Louis heaped that same abuse upon others He was the self loathing homosexual that we all know too wellThe End of Eddy is an autobiographical story of brutality and violence of small minds foreshortened horizons and profound sexism and homophobia Honestly it's not much different than tRump's America This ugly story is set in the 2000s This is a story of France today This is the story of the world today Eddy Bellegueule his last name the rough French euivalent of hey nice face and also the author's birth name is a skinny unathletic verbally conscientious but academically uninspired child of 10 when we meet him Life in his northern town is rough Obesity is respected among the underemployed men their drunken brawling a point of pride among their wives who see it as a sign of inscrutable but ultimately admirable masculinity Girls grow up to work as cashiers in the shop and later to stay home to look after the kids; boys work in the factory or not at all No one leaves The nearby city of Amiens is too full of blacks and ragheads who'd cut you as soon as look at you as everyone knowsEvery day at school Eddy keeps an appointment in an out of the way hall with two slightly older boys one tall with red hair the other shorter with a hunched back who beat him make him swallow their spit and call him pédale pédé tantouse enculé tarlouze pédale douce baltringue tapette tapette à mouches fiotte tafiole tanche folasse grosse tante tata l'homosexuel le gay – they have a lot of words for something they hate so much He meets them there willingly because he figures it's better they beat him up and call him names in a remote spot so others won't be so likely to join in That someone might defend him doesn't occur to him or anyone elseThis is a story without justice filled with monsters There is no beauty or redemption in Eddy's story It is the story of a new subversive force in the West born of an abandoned working class that's fueling a whole hate filled revolution

    For me this was an eyeopener of a book which helps explain the current political situation in EuropeOur first reaction to poverty is to distance ourselves from it by blaming those in poverty They live that way because they are slackers they are lazy etc etc But that would then mean that people who have are not lazy are not slackers and from my experience that is simply not true I know people who have money a 'good' job etc and who are habitual avoiders of sweat and work It is much easier to be lazy when you have in that life is unfair as with all the restLouis describes very well how poverty has it's own fruits lack of education and why the mistrust of education medicine the lack of hope in getting a better deal Why the mistrust? Well think about how we teach dogs now the current mode is teach them by positive reinforcement praise them for the good things that they do and you develop the behaviours you want them to follow Well now transfer that to humans and don't get on your high horse what works for dogs works for us as well What kind of rewards are the poor getting they make it to the end of the month and then someone gets sick and the family is into debt again or the house needs repairs or someone gets into a little trouble Because what is little for those who have is a catastrophe for those who do not have that safety net So no positive reinforcement no bonus at the end of the month no promotion no taking out your daughter to the shops for a little treatPoverty shapes it shapes the people the culture the history their prospects and also how to be how to be a man how to be a woman how to anesthesize yourself with violence and alcohol what to do with the tragedy of wanting something different what to do if you were different Some other reviews I readsawThe Paris ReviewThe GuardianThe New YorkerLondon Review BookshopLambda Nominee for the 30th Lambda Literary Awards Gay FictionBR with Lena

    A brief but unrelenting autobiographical novel about growing up gay and poor in Northern France This was originally published in French in 2014 when the author was just 21 Since then it has sold 300000 copies in France and been translated into 20 languages It can be hard to read scenes such as the one where Eddy has his – not entirely consensual or wholesome – sexual initiation But there is also something cathartic about them particularly since readers learn early on that Eddy makes it out of this situation “years later when I arrived in Paris and at the École Normale” It helps to know that he has a life beyond this painful one The title reflects a determination to be done with others’ conceptions of who he is or should be – the passive prey the effeminate disappointment versus the longed for macho male the deprived boy – and find his own way in lifeSee my full review at BookBrowse See also my article on the book as a publishing phenomenon

    Only in France would a fictionalized memoir about a brutalized sissyboy be underpinned by the sociological theory of Pierre Bourdieu Only in France would it be a phenomenon En finir avec Eddy Bellegueule was published in 2014 – it's just been translated into English and a score of other languages Édouard Louis only 19 when he wrote this book has been compared to Knausgaard and Ferrante How much is hype?Not too much in my view It's a solid little story; it takes place in the impoverished towns of northern France Its ambiance reminded me of Bruno Dumont's La Vie de Jésus or Gaël Morel's Le Clan It's the all too familiar tale of an imaginative effeminate boy being bullied for an affect he can't control can't understand can't disavow Louis brings a disciplined objectivity to what in American prose would be a bitter tale of black comedy or suppressed rage or wretched catharsis The French to return to my stereotype do this well I'm thinking of Tricks 25 Encounters 1981 in which Renaud Camus described sex with strangers in the dry unastonished voice of an anthropologist observing his own tribe – at a time when Americans were publishing fervid classics like Dancer from the Dance and A Boy's Own Story Louis concludes his recit with a small surprise and here I salute the inspired comparison from Neil Barrett's review in The Guardian The ending of the story is strange fractured and brilliant especially the audaciously suspended moment – which reminded me of the unforgettable freeze frame at the end of Truffaut’s Les uatre Cents Coups – as he leaps out of his childhood into the possibility of salvation The title that came to my mind is from a slight earthshaking novel I read at Eddy's age sitting at the back of homeroom I'll Get There It Better Be Worth the Trip

    Another read from the Tournament of Books shortlist about bullying and masculinity and its impact on a gay boy coming of age in a French factory town Translated from the French and largely autobiographical it's not a cheery read but thought provoking and full of truths and realities Compared to a recent read The Heart's Invisible Furies which wraps a gay coming of age story in a larger narrative about cultures changing or not and AIDs this is a much narrower rural and focused view Both are good reads for different reasons

    Google Edouard Louis so you can learn what he looks like because if you ever see him in the street you are to immediately hug him and don't stop hugging him until he's like 50Does anyone know him? Can you call him or put a hand on his shoulder and ask if he's okay?I had reservations about this one initially because I thought it was just another Dave Pelzer child sadness porn and that may attract readers but they won't leave without learning something—nice try—but the answer comes from one publisher's rejection of this manuscript on the grounds that it was unbelievable because France hadn't seen this poverty in a long timeThe style is a kind of biography of his family and village Best read all in one sitting to really let the purgatorial feel of it sink into you The one book I'd most compare it to oddly enough is Joseph Heller's Something Happened a kind of plotless evocation of an unbearable mood the volume of which threatens to deafen you but it's irresistible somehow so you keep turning the knob pages ahahaha my metaphor fell apart It's well written of course in the way all things are when they have something to say because the muse's urgency has her doing the brunt of the workSo I'm glad the French are bearing witness What's done is done and that's about all you can do about that But there's work to do and this book is a call to actionI had to stop reading at one point because I gagged No spoilers though lol

    The End of Eddy Das Ende von EddyÉdouard Louis fka Eddy Bellegeule does it all He just finished his stint as a Montgomery Fellow at Dartmouth College and next Monday he'll give his first lecture at Freie Universität Berlin it's public so go there people Also he has become one of the most important voices in France his books sell like crazy and his opinions on the working class and the Alt Right are published in the New York Times Oh have I mentioned that this guy is 25?The End of Eddy was his first book published in 2014 and it is an account of him growing up as a gay kid in a poor family in the Picardie Similar to his friend and mentor Didier Eribon Louis describes the structural undercurrents that shape this ailing rural community and that drive the inhabitants of the village to behave as they do The hard repetetive work in the factories or as cashiers; the toxic masculinity and reactionary female stereotypes; the suspicion against education and the educated; the alcoholism Roles and behaviors are inherited over generations and so is poverty Eddy Bellegeule who is gay loves theatre and aims to go to university does not fit in he is perceived as a source of shame and a target of humiliation As a kid that must have been hell for him but reading his account it becomes clear that those who torture him also suffer tremendously which is certainly no excuse for their hate and neglect Eddy aims to become a regular member of the community playing soccer telling gay jokes and trying to convert himself to heterosexuality but of course he fails and finally fleesThere are several uestions that one might ask here First of all I am always having trouble with Eribon's deterministic view which shines through here as well but way less extreme While society puts up tremendous unfair obstacles against the class depicted in the book these people still have a free will Not being able to exercise it to a degree that other classes can due to outside circumstances is a terrible injustice but it does not mean that free will is taken away from the lower working class Eribon and Louis left their homes for example From a wider perspective this is of course no solution The working class needs better living and working conidtions and Louis is an advocate for thisAnother uestion would be whether this is ficton or non fiction Louis says that what is described in this book happened to him while some people who are characters in the text saw certain parts differently I guess this is no contradiction The book his highly personal and based on memory many characters look really bad in this story so I guess some are ashamed while others really believe in a different course of events The Ende of Eddy is about Louis' perspective and that is his prerogative as an authorI am really excited to read from Louis and to see where he will be going in the future His third book ui a tué mon père seems to be a piece of social advocacy and sounds fascinating Oh and his second book History of Violence is really good as well

    a tour de force of a coming of age novel The author is only 21 The book recounts his childhood in a Picardy village among the rural poor where unemployment alcoholism racism and homophobia are rife just like the stereotype the rest of France has of the North in fact The French underclass has scarcely been written about since Zola and almost never by someone who grew up in it as far as I know This is terrific full of sadness and tenderness without hatred but with great love and humour in places I especially liked his relationship with his sister who tries to get him off with girls Not yet translated into English but should be the reality of the Benefits Street of France in the 1990s needed showing to us Maybe I'll volunteer to translate it for non native francophones the prose is limpid and simple because of his youth Louis has been criticised in the snootier ends of the French media and I promise you they can do snooty for a juvenile style but I think this is misplaced And for me as a non native it was easy to read Incidentally or not Bellegueule is his real surname hard to translate but would invite mockery at school something like Lovelymug or Prettyboy The latter especially for a gay boy who is recognised as such by classmates and bullied for it well you can imagine I read this or less at a sitting If I were teaching French to college students outside France I would have them read this
