READING GROUP: LIE WITH ME BY PHILIPPE BESSON

Virtual Live Reading Group

Philippe Besson’s heart-gripping story about desire and shame, Arrête avec tes mensonges (Lie with Me, translated by Molly Ringwald, Penguin) will be discussed in a reading group for French literature enthusiasts.

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.
