The Familia Grande, Camille Kouchner ( paperback May 2022)
THE LITERARY SENSATION THAT STORMED THE WORLD, THE PHENOMENAL FRENCH BESTSELLER HAS SOLD 350,000 COPIES
A family's secret weighs on everyone... THE FAMILIA GRANDE is a tender, ground-breaking and lacerating memoir written by a sister who could no longer remain silent... Set in amongst the French intellectual elite in Paris and their lavender scented estates in Provence, it tells a story of a corrosive secret that sits in a family for decades and ultimately razes it and the political, literary elite that enabled its silence, to the ground.
Already an international bestseller, it has touched a nerve across the globe and has brought about a powerful reckoning of incest, and its far-reaching trauma. The Familia Grande is a book of a generation. 'The courage of a sister who could no longer keep quiet.' - EMMANUEL MACRON
