Synopsis: An obsessive and revealing self-portrait of a remarkable woman humiliated by the circumstances of her birth and by her physical appearance, La Bâtarde relates Violette Leduc?s long search for her own identity through a series of agonizing and passionate love affairs with both men and women.
When first published, La Bâtarde earned Violette Leduc comparisons to Jean Genet for the frank depiction of her sexual escapades and immoral behavior. A confession that contains portraits of several famous French authors, this book is more than just a scintillating memoir?like that of Henry Miller, Leduc?s brilliant writing style and attention to language transform this autobiography into a work of art.
Product Description: In her second revealing memoir of literary Paris, Leduc shares her insights into a post-War Parisian scene dominated by the likes of Camus, Genet, Sartre, Cocteau, and Simone de Beauvoir, who became her mentor for a time. Original.
