Virtual Albertine Book Club: Lie With Me by Philippe Besson
Join us for a lively Zoom conversation on Lie With Me by Philippe Besson, translated from French by Molly Ringwald, Scribner. The discussion will be moderated by Dennis Bogusz. Albertine Members will receive the Zoom link via email on the day of the book club.
Lie with Me tells the story of a first love between two young boys in their last year of high school. The narrative develops after Philippe sees a man bearing a striking resemblance to his past lover, bringing back all the memories of his hidden love.
“[A] study in intimacy … Lie With Me captures the full tragedy of the closet … Equal parts Andre Aciman and Marguerite Duras.”
—Ayten Tartici, The New York Times Book Review
