Based on A True Story

Delphine de Vigan will present Based on A True Story, a chilling work of fiction about a friendship gone terrifyingly toxic and the nature of reality. This book became an international hit, and sold half a million copies in France. Based on A True Story is the winner of Le Prix Renaudot 2015 and Le Prix Goncourt des Lycéens 2015.

This sophisticated psychological thriller skillfully blurs the line between fact and fiction, reality and artifice. Delphine de Vigan has crafted a terrifying, insidious, meta-fictional thriller; a haunting vision of seduction and betrayal; a book which in its hungering for truth implicates the reader, too–even as it holds us in its thrall.

In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
