WWBC: Violette Leduc - La Bâtarde

Women Writers Book Club --
February meet-up
reading La Bâtarde by Violette Leduc (1964) x

A bestseller in France at its first publication, Violette Leduc’s autobiographical La bâtarde is an oft-overlooked classic of feminist literature. Famous for its frank discussions of sex and sexuality, its incredibly

intricate characterizations, and its protagonist totally devoted to her own queer desire.

“At the age of five, of six, at the age of seven, I used to begin weeping sometimes without warning, simply for the sake of weeping, my eyes open wide to the sun, to the flowers. . . . I wanted to feel an immense grief inside me and it came.”
