Come and discuss the 2018 Goncourt prize-winning novel And Their Children After Them by Nicolas Mathieu (translated by William Rodarmor).
In this poignant coming-of-age tale taking place in a region of Eastern France left behind by global progress, Nicolas Mathieu conjures up the journey of a young generation that has to forge its own path in a dying world. Four summers and four defining moments (from Nirvana’s song Smells Like Teen Spirit to the 1998 World Cup) encapsulate the hectic lives, hope and dreams on the young inhabitants in order to dress a contemporary portrait of a decade of de-industrialisation politics.
