The Absolute Book by Elizabeth Knox

“An instant classic, a work to rank alongside other modern masterpieces of fantasy such as Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials” – The Guardian

'A brilliant novel... courageous, necessary and deeply touching' Guardian

Edouard Louis grew up in a village in northern France where many live below the poverty line. His bestselling debut novel about life there, The End of Eddy, has sparked debate on social inequality, sexuality and violence.

It is an extraordinary portrait of escaping from an unbearable childhood, inspired by the author's own. Written with an openness and compassionate intelligence, ultimately, it asks, how can we create our own freedom?

'A mesmerising story about difference and adolescence'
New York Times

'Edouard Louis...is that relatively rare thing - a novelist with something to say and a willingness to say it, without holding back'
The Times

'Louis' book has become the subject of political discussion in a way that novels rarely do'
Garth Greenwell, New Yorker
