It was a pleasure to begin reading about Lie With Me, which has been called the French Brokeback Mountain. It's by Phillipe Besson. Interesting, also, that Besson also wrote Un Personnage de Roman about Emmanuel Macron and a reviewer thought the two books are "sort of the same book." I've always thought Macron was a bit of a Brokiesque character, so by reading these I could maybe discover why.

Another trivia nugget: Lie With Me was translated into English by Molly Ringwald. Yes, that Molly Ringwald!
May 2019 be better for us all.
