The End of Eddy – Édouard Louis

What a devastating book. It’s a novel, but very obviously also the author’s experience. Pretty sure they’re calling this autofiction now. Eddy is born into a poor family in the north of France. He knows, and his family knows, he’s gay from day one. This only brings him constant judgement, bullying, and abuse from all angles. That Eddy survives to write this book is the only consolation you’ll get from this heartbreaking novel.
