Summary
On Christmas Eve 2012 in Paris, the novelist Edouard Louis was raped and almost murdered by a man he had just met. This act of violence left Louis shattered; its aftermath made him a stranger to himself and sent him back to the village, the family, and the past he had sworn to leave behind. A bestseller in France; challenged and vindicated in the courts; History of Violence is a short nonfiction novel in the tradition of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, but with the victim as its subject. Moving between past and present, between Louis's voice and the voice of an imagined narrator, the book has the exactness of a police report and the searching, unflinching curiosity of memoir. It records not only the casual racism and homophobia of French society but also their subtle effects on lovers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives
