"A French memoir in the age of #metoo. A literary sensation, Vanessa Springora's Consent weaves her personal narrative of a relationship during her childhood with a famous, much older writer into a stunning and forceful indictment of the literary world that allowed sexual abuse of minors to occur unchecked"-- Provided by publisher.
Thirty years ago, Springora was the teenage muse of one of the France's most celebrated writers. Here she offers her perspective of their relationship: a universal #MeToo story of power, manipulation, trauma, recovery, and resiliency that exposes the hypocrisy of a culture that has allowed the sexual abuse of minors to occur unchecked. Her memoir lays bare the cultural attitudes and circumstances that made it possible for a thirteen-year-old girl to become involved with a fifty-year-old man, and reflects on the ways in which this disturbing relationship changed and affected her as she grew older.
