Lie With Me The award winning, bestselling French novel by Philippe Besson about an affair between two teenage boys in 1984 France, translated with subtle beauty and haunting lyricism by the iconic and internationally acclaimed actress writer Molly Ringwald We drive at high speed along back roads, through woods, vineyards, and oat fields The bike smells like gasoline and makes a lot of noise, and sometimes I m frightened when the wheels slip on the gravel on the dirt road, but the only thing that matters is that I m holding on to him, that I m holding on to himoutside .Just outside a hotel in Bordeaux, Philippe chances upon a young man who bears a striking resemblance to his first love What follows is a look back at the relationship he s never forgotten, a hidden affair with a gorgeous boy named Thomas during their last year of high school Without ever acknowledging they know each other in the halls, they steal time to meet in secret, carrying on a passionate, world altering affair.Dazzlingly rendered in English by Ringwald in her first ever translation, Besson s powerfully moving coming of age story captures the eroticism and tenderness of first love and the heartbreaking passage of time.

    I recently saw Ellen Page on The Late Show give an impassioned plea to end the hate against the queer community I was moved by her words and while reading this novella I kept thinking about them How long has hatred left its indelible mark and perhaps changed the course of so many lives senselessly Philippe Besson and Thomas Andrieu can be counted amongst that collateral damage There was no hate crime or bullying per se but both were victims of apersistent kind of hatred that relegated I recently saw Ellen Page on The Late Show give an impassioned plea to end the hate against the queer community I was moved by her words and while reading this novella I kept thinking about them How long has hatred left its indelible mark and perhaps changed the course of so many lives senselessly Philippe Besson and Thomas Andrieu can be counted amongst that collateral damage There was no hate crime or bullying per se but both were victims of apersistent kind of hatred that relegated them to a clandestine relationship intolerance Philippe and Thomas should ve been afforded the same privileges as their heterosexual counterparts without impunity They should ve been allowed the freedom to love and be loved without the need for courage or bravery to ...
