Love Me Tender, by Constance Debré

Staff Pick

Part of a renowned French family, Debré was once a lawyer with a husband and child. Then she quit her job to write, took up a nomadic Parisian lifestyle, left her husband, and came out as gay. Her former spouse viewed this new identity as a danger to children and stopped her from seeing her son. Thus began Debré's struggle to both pursue what she loved and to fight for what she loved. Not just telling her story, her book is a knock-out work of art that brilliantly straddles the line between auto-fiction and memoir. Readers can look forward to two further installments (currently being translated into English) of what is sure to be a classic trilogy.
