With The End of Eddy, Édouard Louis gives an autobiographical account of his experience of homophobia and economic inequality growing up in Hallencourt, a village in the north of France where many live below the poverty line. While the book has being widely received for offering insight into current divisions within French society as well as the recent electoral success of Marine Le Pen, Peter Carrol also welcomes it as an elegantly written contribution to contemporary LGBT literature.
