"...On Christmas Eve 2012, in Paris, the novelist ©douard Louis was raped and almost murdered by a man he had just met. This act of violence left Louis shattered; its aftermath made him a stranger to himself and sent him back to the village, the family, and the past he had sworn to leave behind. A bestseller in France; challenged and vindicated in the courts; History of Violence is a short nonfiction novel in the tradition of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, but with the victim as its subject. Moving seamlessly and hypnotically between past and present, between Louis's voice and the voice of an imagined narrator, History of Violence has the exactness of a police report and the searching, unflinching curiosity of memoir at its best. It records not only the casual racism and homophobia of French society but also their subtle effects on lovers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. It represents a great step forward for a young writer whose acuity, skill, and depth are unmatched by any novelist of his generation, in French or English."--Amazon.com.… (més)

It is not an easy book to review perhaps because you cannot analyze the literary value of a personal account trauma post an attempted murder and rape.

All I can say is it was a cleverly crafted novel with beautiful prose that touched upon the topics of racism, homophobia and victim shaming while giving an unfiltered and raw account of trauma.

Ik vond dit minder goed dan Eddy Bellegueule: er wordt verteld hoe Edouard (EL zegt zelf voortdurend dat aan zijn romans niets verzonnen is, zie mijn bespreking van EB, volkomen onwaar, maar wel met een kern van waarheid, dus ik doe even of dit hemzelf allemaal zo is overkomen) beroofd, verkracht en bijna vermoord is door een Berberjongen die hij/die hem in de nacht van 24 op 25 december in Parijs oppikt. Het verhaal wordt grotendeels verteld door zijn zuster aan haar (zwijgende) man, wat een nogal gekunstelde vorm is, op zich, en ook omdat die zuster spreektalig (vermoeiend leesbaar) Frans gebruikt, maar wel met te veel inzicht voor haar achtergrond als arbeidersmeisje uit een dorp. In feite hoor je Edouard, die haar alles verteld heeft want hij moet er steeds weer over praten, in haar versie, niet alleen de feiten maar ook de inzichten, ook als ze Edouards inzichten en oordelen in twijfel trekt. Een kleiner deel vertelt Edouard cq de verteller in eigen persoon. Er staan veel goede dingen in, inzichten en gedachten(spinsels) over hoe het voelt beroofd te worden terwijl je jezelf als medeslachtoffer van de maatschappij ziet, hoe onbegrijpelijk het hele handelen van Reda, de dader, is: eerst een aantal malen bevredigende seks, tederheid, later dreigen, schreeuwen, stelen, poging tot wurgen, dreigen met vuurwapen, verkrachting tot bloedens toe, maar dan weer ontkennen, toneelspelen, oprecht strelen, verwarring over zijn eigen gevoelens, gesymboliseerd in het laatste Pardon als hij vertrekt. Toeval en improvisatie als drijfveren bij zo'n ingrijpende gebeurtenis. Ook goed hoe vernederend de machinerie is die je bij aangifte in beweging zet, en hoe dwingend. Maar minder vond ik, naast de opzet met de vertellende zuster: dat het wel erg langdradig is en, daarmee samenhangend, dat EL zich wel erg als het centrum van het universum beschouwt van wie elke handeling en elke gedachte ongelofelijk de moeite waard is. En ook wel de, ondanks de ernst van de zaak, in mijn ogen enigszins hysterische reactie van EL. Maar misschien zou ik wel anders piepen als mij zoiets was overkomen. ( )

I will get thisout of the way first: I hate the term "nonfiction novel". That is an oxymoron. Wikipedia (for what that's worth) describes memoir, biography, and autobiography as "forms" of the nonfiction novel.

This particular book is subtitled "a novel". I believe it is actually a memoir. Memoirs don't have to be exactly factual, they are just as much about the author's perception, memory, and recall of events. Two people could wrote memoirs of the same events and the facts would seem to be different. This is why eyewitness accounts often can't be trusted. In any case, this book is shelved with the novels. Louis' first book was also a "nonfiction novel" (memoir, based on summaries of it). There is a perfectly good term for the form Louis writes, why not use it?! Unless the events in these books did not actually occur, in which case there is no "nonfiction" to be had. I will assume they did.
————
In this book Louis explains, discusses, struggles with, and ruminates on the Christmas Eve when he was raped and nearly killed by a man he had met hours before. He is clearly struggling with self-blame, as well as confusion and second-guessing his own actions, including his final decision to go to the police, who made him question his choices and decisions. Much of the story is he listening to his sister describe what he had told her to his husband, with some of her commentary. Is this a "novel" because he never actually eavesdropped on sister? If he even has a sister? Perhaps this is his way of telling the tale without telling it, as the words are coming out of his "sister's" mouth?

Moving and interesting, I just wish it was called a memoir. ( )

Alors d'un point de vue psychologique, ça m'a paru extrêmement réaliste, bien exprimé et crédible. Par contraste, c'est l'encadrement du récit qui m'a paru pas bien fait: l'histore est racontée de la perspective de l'auteur qui écoute en cachette sa soeur raconter à son mari le crime dont l'auteur a été victime. C'est une idée de perspective assez géniale, qui permet à l'auteur de commenter/corriger le récit de sa soeur en temps réel, de rajouter des détails, de s'énerver sur la façon qu'elle s'exprime... mais justement dans la mise en prâtique il me semblait y avoir trop de la voix de l'auteur dans celle de sa soeur. Elle faisait donc un peu marionnette. Mais c'est pas grave, car le récit lui-même vaut absolument la peine de être lu. Je trouve que c'est un bon bouquin parce qu'il promeut tolérance, compassion et compréhension. ( )

This is a young man's (Edouard) account of his rape by a stranger (Reda) who he picked up in the street and took back to his apartment. It's essentially the story of a gay pick-up gone wrong and the humiliating consequences of it.

The actual encounter including the sex actually goes well until Edouard accuses the stranger of trying to steal his cellphone. Reda reacts to this with outrage that his lineage is being disrespected (a coping mechanism probably masking a guilty conscience). He becomes violent and tries to strangle Edouard, before raping him. After the sexual attack Edouard manages to get Reda out of the apartment. Then readers learn what Edouard endures after the rape, including going to the emergency room at a hospital for treatment and eventually reluctantly reporting it to the police upon the urging of friends. He is sent to several police stations to tell his story. He fears reporting the attack thinking that Reda will come back and do him harm. The attack has left him confused and insecure. His friends are supportive, although he seems to resent their efforts to help him.

Some commentators have deemed this book to be great contemporary literature and social commentary. That may be so, but I read it solely as the account of a gay man being raped by a trick. It's easy to sympathize with Edouard over the post-attack events and his feelings about the rape, even though I got no sense of him having any outrage over his violation. He seems more concerned about how Reda would treated in prison and how the police seem to be prejudiced against Arabs.

My comments about this book may be dismissed as being simplistic. I cannot usefully analyze the structure of the book or how the author tells the story (I found it disjointed and unfocused). I did learn that this form of writing is called "autofiction". The question I am left with is how much is real, and how much is made up? ( )
