Class change, the power of literature, and the awareness of privilege
an interview with Édouard Louis
Édouard Louis will be in conversation with 2020 Booker Prize winner Douglas Stuart at Passa Porta.
Friday, September 24th | 8 p.m. (CET)
“This autumn, Shuggie Bain, the breathtaking first novel by Douglas Stuart, winner of the 2020 Booker Prize, will be published in French translation by Globe. At the same time, Édouard Louis’s latest novel, Combats et métamorphoses d’une femme, will be published in Dutch translation (Strijd en metamorfose van een vrouw, De Bezige Bij). The parallels between these two books were an occasion to bring the authors together for an in-depth interview.”
