Monsieur By Emma Becker
‘Raw and delicate. Colette meets Catherine Millet.’ Le Figaro
Monsieur is the hugely powerful and evocative semi-autobiographical story of a passionate affair between a twenty-year old student and a plastic surgeon twice her age.
An online encounter fuelled by a shared love of erotic literature leads to a highly explicit yet brief relationship.
Emma Becker charts the web of lust between Ellie and ‘Monsieur’, set against the modern landscape of Facebook and secret rendezvous in the Piagalle hotel.
A beautifully told story of a forbidden love affair which will turn Monsieur into the new Lolita.
‘Deviant . . . hilarious and merciless at once.’ -West France
‘Between sexual frenzy and emotional fragility, there is an unprecedented self-portrait in the twenty-year-old daughter—the one that discovered the world.’
‘With beautiful writing—careful, precious and incandescent—Emma Becker explores the dangers of the passion that burns between the soul and sex addiction.’ -Grazia
