Lie With Me [9780241987094]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

THE NO.1 FRENCH BESTSELLER AND WINNER OF THE MAISONS DE LA PRESSE PRIZE

'Stunning and heart-gripping' Andre Aciman, author of Call Me by Your Name

Just outside a hotel in Bordeaux, Philippe, a famous writer, chances upon a young man who bears a striking resemblance to his first love. What follows is a look back to Philippe's teenage years, to a winter morning in 1984, a small French high school, and a carefully timed encounter between two seventeen-year-olds. It's the start of a secret, intensely passionate, world-altering love affair between Philippe and his classmate, Thomas.

Dazzlingly rendered by Molly Ringwald, the acclaimed actor and writer, in her first-ever translation, Besson's exquisitely moving coming-of-age story captures the tenderness of first love - and the heart-breaking passage of time.

'A timeless love story. Molly Ringwald's translation is as clear and beautiful as the story it depicts. You'll read it in a night, but its exquisite heartbreak will linger' David Ebershoff, author of 'The Danish Girl'

'May well be the best gay love story in contemporary fiction. I dare you to read it without crying.' Christopher Bollen, author of 'The Destroyers'

'The French Brokeback Mountain' Elle

'The uncanny thrill of Philippe Besson's Lie With Me rises up from Molly Ringwald's elegant translation with the intensity of meeting a stranger on a train who tells you a single unforgettable story and then leaves. And his voice haunts me still' Alexander Chee, author of 'How to Write an Autobiographical Novel' and 'The Queen of the Night'
