"An extraordinary read, honest, intimate and lightly poetic. It is a testament of love, loss and grief and also the often untold story of those who are left behind and must find a way to go on"--Irish Independent

"A book of exceptional grace... the most extraordinary account of an emotional journey" - Observer

"All about love and loss.... An astonishing feat... I defy anyone not to shed tears at least once when reading this book." - Sunday Times

"You Will Not Have My Hate is a courageous and profoundly life affirming manifesto that will live beyond any momentary victory of terrorism. How indestructible these beautiful words are... A heartbreaking eulogy." -New York Journal of Books

"In a world of anodyne literature, Antoine Leiris's You Will Not Have My Hate stands out like a flare in the night... A work of pure grace... Ultimately a book about language and its necessity as a means not just of making sense of unspeakable tragedy, but of surviving it." -- Interview Magazine

"Courageous and inspirational, without a wasted word." - Kirkus, starred review

"One of the most enduring and memorable messages after the deadly attack on Paris's Bataclan theater was written by journalist Antoine Leiris... This bracing, courageous, and utterly beautiful book shows us that he had much more to say." - 21 Must-Read Books for Fall,

"This powerful one-sitting read speaks of a very specific grief to which many in the world feel connected."--Booklist
