THE NO.1 FRENCH BESTSELLER AND WINNER OF THE MAISON DE LA PRESSE PRIZE 'Stunning and heart-gripping' André Aciman, author of Call Me by Your Name 'A beautiful, shattering novel about desire and shame, about passionate youth and the regrets of age' Olivia Laing, bestselling author of Crudo 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.'It has been years since anything moved me as much as Lie With Me. It will become a classic.' Jonathan Coe, bestselling author of Middle England 'An intense, unforgettable novel, alive with the ache of longing and loss.' Sarah Waters, bestselling, award-winning author of The Little Stranger and Fingersmith 'Devastating and tender; this is the book I wish I'd read when I was 15, and a book I'm glad to have as a companion now' Andrew McMillan, award-winning author of Physical'A deeply moving depiction of first love, both tender and elegiac.' John Boyne, bestselling author of A Ladder to the Sky and The Heart's Invisible Furies 'A slender, sad, acute novel... absolutely excellent' Sarah Perry, bestselling author of The Essex Serpent and Melmoth'A tender, sensuous novel' New York Times Book Review 'Full of Proustian echoes, this story of gay adolescence deals with complex issues of class, shame and secrecy' Guardian 'A poignant tale that captures the intensity of first love with all its sadness, longing and regret' Daily Mail 'This novel can be read in a matter of hours, but its impact, like the love affair it details, will echo in the mind' Irish Times

Rezensionen
A beautiful, shattering novel about desire and shame, about passionate youth and the regrets of age. Olivia Laing, bestselling author of 'Crudo' and 'The Lonely City'
"[A] study in intimacy ... the novel captures the full tragedy of the closet ... Equal parts Andre Aciman and Marguerite Duras." -Ayten Tartici, The New York Times Book Review "An elegiac tale of first, hidden love between two teen-age boys who have no chance of a shared future, Lie With Me sold more than a hundred thousand copies in France, where it won several prizes and is being made into a movie. Elle deemed it "the French Brokeback Mountain" ... The book reads like a photograph, faded but composed: the bac, linden trees, a green Simca 1100, Lino Ventura. We can see even if we don't know. Call it a memoir of a memory." -Lauren Collins, The New Yorker "This Year's Call Me by Your Name Is French: More Meta But Just As Hot ... Lie With Me is the story of a successful (unnamed) French novelist ... who catches a glimpse of what he thinks is a past lover in a hotel. Triggered by the sighting, he traces the story of his secret high-school affair with that lover: It was brief in tenure but formed the mold into which he has since tried to press every other romantic relationship." -Hillary Kelly, Vulture "One of the best novels you'll read this year was actually published in France in 2017. Translated by the actress and author Molly Ringwald, Lie With Me by Philippe Besson brilliantly reminds readers of the joys and agonies of love." -Jeffrey Masters, The Advocate "[A] tender, sensuous novel." -New York Times Book Review, 9 New Books We Recommend This Week "Lie with Me succeeds as a novel because of Besson's graceful writing, beautifully translated by Ringwald. Besson is a gifted stylist, and he infuses Philippe's story with the right notes of sadness and longing. . . . perfectly captures what it's like to be young and in love ... [a] lovely novel." -Michael Schaub, NPR.org "Want to be hip, cool and on trend? Read Phillippe Besson's story of young first love, Lie With Me, masterfully translated from the French by Molly Ringwald ... good and sad and wonderfully beautiful." -Ciaran Freeman, America Magazine "French author Philippe Besson's international best seller Lie With Me is now available Stateside thanks to actor, author, and erstwhile Parisian Molly Ringwald's fluid translation. Told in three parts, the slender novel recounts a clandestine romance between two teenage boys in 1984 ... More than 20 years after his last encounter with Thomas, Philippe runs into his former lover's doppelganger, and a chance discovery shatters the gentle reverie of the past. Small ripples can make the fiercest waves." -Lauren Mechling, Vogue "A devastating read about first love ... The novel is so irresistible, it can't be put down ... Lie With Me is the must-read gay novel of the summer." -Gary Kramer, Philadelphia Gay News "Lie with Me will enthrall the reader from start to finish. The prose is so spot on. Besson seems incapable of wasting a word. His descriptions, his feelings, and his memories are precise and captivating." -Declan Henry, New York Journal of Books "Introspective and evocative, Lie With Me is an absorbing story about passionate love thwarted by class differences and homophobia. The slim novel takes on a great deal in a short amount of space and establishes Molly Ringwald as a skilled translator." -Michael Kaler, Lambda Literary "Besson's Lie With Me-translated from French to English by none other than actress Molly Ringwald!-tells the story of Philippe, a gay man who recounts his heady, all-consuming first love as a teen growing up in France in the 1980s. The André Aciman-approved coming-of-age tale has already racked up a slew of accolades, including notable mentions from The New York Times Book Review, the Wall Street Journal, The Advocate, and more. It's a No. 1 best-seller en France, too." -NewNowNext "For your friend who can't stop talking about Call Me By Your Name ... Say hi to Philippe Besson's Lie With Me. Originally published in French, Molly Ringwald translated the book f…mehr
