About the Author
Tristan Garcia was born in 1981 in Toulouse and attended the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where he specialized in philosophy. He is the author of a book of philosophy, The Image, published in 2007. Hate: A Romance is his first novel.
"Among the first novels we read this season, the most mind-blowing is by twenty-seven-year-old Tristan Garcia: Hate: A Romance, a morality tale that grapples with the political and intellectual battles of the last two decades of French life and how those are caught up in the sex lives of the protagonists. A novel we're still reeling from, and which we've chosen to put at the very top of our honor roll." --Les Inrockuptibles
"One of the revelations of the literary season . . . An intimate, romantic, political, and cultural fresco [of the 1980s], a portrait startling in its accuracy." --Christine Rousseau, Le Monde
"The real eye-opener of the season . . . A novel that made me reassess a decade that I'd lived through with my eyes closed. It took an upstart philosopher . . . to make me understand what was going on when I was twenty years old, when the Left became the Right." --Frédéric Beigbeder, author of Windows on the World and founder of the Prix de Flore
