A Woman's Battles and Transformations, by Édouard Louis

Staff Pick

This companion to Louis's Who Killed My Father? combines memoir and social critique to recount his mother's liberation from both her husband's neglectful treatment and the wider class and gender disparagement she was subject to. Examining how the French sociopolitical environment fostered his mother's particular hardships, and how this struggle fomented her resentment of her role as a wife and mother, this is a thought-provoking book from one of France's most important contemporary writers.
