Reading Group on Love Me Tender by Constance Debré

Tue 5 March

This reading group is dedicated to Constance Debré’s novel Love Me Tender, which won the Prix Les Inrockuptibles in 2020.

Following her coming out, Constance Debré left everything: her husband, her job and her home. She is now fighting for the custody of her son, whom she is forbidden to meet without juristic supervision. Despite social pressure, with a sharp writing style, she does not hesitate to share the details of her individuality, sexuality and newly acquired freedom. Her radical quest for the loosening of social norms, mother- love and female homosexuality form an empowering call to reflection and also an explosive autobiographical novel about inner-revolutions.

Please note that the author won’t be present in person.
You can find information on the book in English on the British publisher’s website.
