2017Spring

Born in 1992 as Eddy Bellegueule in Hallencourt, a little village of 1400 souls in northern France, Édouard changed his surname to Louis when he left the violent working-class milieu of his parents and moved to Paris. He started studying sociology at the École normal superieur but quickly became the most celebrated French writer of his generation when he—just twenty-two years old—published his first novel En finir avec Eddy Belleueule (Éditions du Seuil) in 2014.
