    Recently published in English under the interesting title Hate a romance this novel created uite a stir when it was published in France and won a major literary prize Because of the subject matter the trajectory of the generation of gay men that had to deal with AIDS when it exploded because of the fact that it is based on real characters because of the in your face style of the writer who's a very young philosophy teacher it's obvious from the start that this book aims at being or less scandalous and at shocking the reader as much as it can while also at giving him a lesson in as many fields as Garcia thinks he's good at social history politics philosophy etc But the truth is the book doesn't really achieve any of its goals simply because it's not good enough to do so Garcia is certainly a talented person and he's got some good ideas His views on some aspects of all the debates that have surrounded the AIDS epidemic and how people reacted to it in France are often interesting as are some broader comments on French society and culture in the last thirty years But Garcia's vision of an era that he hasn't known and which I have sounds pretty shallow and narrow minded to me and doesn't come close to recapture what it meant to be young in the twenties as the AIDS crisis unfolded and decimated a whole segment of the population There is absolutely no emotion in a book that is infuriatingly intellectual in the worst sense of the word It isn't helped by the over the top lurid prose especially when it comes to the dialogues Garcia's characters are for the most part caricatural and unconvincing and therefore are hard to empathize with or even to comprehend Not once did I feel that they represented an era and they certainly don't do justice to the real and controversial persons they're based on There's something very pretentious and arrogant about this book Yet despite all this something in Garcia's narration keeps the reader not necessarily interested but at least intrigued I wonder how it's been translated and how American readers can relate to it

    “In the end the connections among several beings last only for a certain culminating moment in life and the strong feelings that rise up joining three or four people together to the point of obsession come back down again and finally leave nothing in our memories except the form of a bell curve – which one must leave behind just as it is”This philosophical and cerebral novel has at its core the relationships among four friends William Willie Miller Dominiue Doume Rossi Jean Michel Leibo Leibowitz and the narrator Elizabeth Liz Levallois Through their experiences this young first time author examines many cultural aspects gay rights the political situation sexual liberation in a way that allows the reader to feel the characters’ beliefs strongly on both sides of each issue These four friends dedicated to each other at the beginning of the novel gradually succumb to the pressures of their ideologies and part ways becoming vengeful and bitter enemiesIt is my hope that French author Garcia continues to write powerful mind churning novels Having already won the 2008 Prix de Flore for this first novel he should aspire to one day enter the Pantheon of great French philosopher authors like Voltaire Sartre and Camus Though this was a difficult read demanding intense concentration in the end it was a worthwhile one It encourages the reader not only to examine the political and philosophical issues which affect hisher life but also to examine the true nature of friendshipThanks to bookseller Charles at the Northshire Bookstore for recommending this book via a shelf talkerGrade B

    I really enjoyed reading this book not only because it tackles the subject of AIDS and 'safe sex' in a way that is completely believable but because it captures so much of the political and cultural ambiguity surrounding the disease and the 'gay' world I thought the strongest part of the book was the middle; to me the end felt a bit predictable and moralistic but that's a minor uibble in light of my overall enjoyment The book is also VERY FRENCH to the extent that politics and political labels such as 'left' and 'right' actually mean something to the characters in ways that I think are relatively rare in the US which I say without judgment it's just a difference

    I cannot believe that Garcia is only a couple years older than I but that just adds to how much I felt about this book During college I did a lot of research on AIDS narratives but all of them were anglophone accounts This was one of the first times that I had a French perspective on the subject and because it was written so much later it puts all of the stories many of the important personalities all together creating a provocative narrative that discusses many of the identity problems that face the ueer community post AIDS


  5. Lisa Lisa says:

    Hate a Romance has been longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize which is probably no surprise to the French because it won the 2008 Prix de Flore It’s the debut novel of a young philosopher called Tristan Garcia and it explores the decline of the idealism that for my generation defined the 1970s But it is not for the faint hearted there is a great deal of very bad language and there’s possibly about gay sex than many people want to knowTo read my review please visit

    This book caught my eye admittedly I have a thing for gay literature I thought Willie was a very enthralling character I loved him hated him envied pitied him felt disgusted by him and admired him all at once often over the scope of just a few pages or chapters His slow descent into disease addled mania was painful to watch but impossible to look away from His antagonism with Dominiue was at times humorous it it's obsessiveness other times disturbing The end was a bit deflating and abrupt I loved the relationships The main reason this didn't get five stars is because at times I felt like it was too political for my taste Admittedly I don't know much about French politics in the 80s so much of that went over my head At times the books feels like it's all over the map going from philosophical musings to cultural analysis to political statements often all within a single page or chapter It feels dry at times Luckily it is very much grounded in the relationships and the narrative always makes its way back to the characters at hand making it readable even for people with a less than keen interest in the other things going on Overall what I enjoyed most about this book were some of the less intellectual human philosophical insights such as thisI think the existence of something outside himself the existence of people of the world always came as a kind of revelation for ever since he was little and in all his daily life he had trouble believing for than a second in the existence of anything outside himself


  7. Kevin Warman Kevin Warman says:

    Tristan Garcia's writing is riddled with beautiful prose and crudeness I thought his characters developed in such a way that they became real multidimensional personalities The crux of this of course is that I found myself pretty much hating every single one of them William is perhaps the worst To me he was the fictional combination of Daisy Buchanan meets Dorian Gray He does not have any understanding that other people exist let alone how his actions impact them Dominiue played such a role in creating trouble for himself and others that he too is awful Elizabeth actually starts to come into her own and I disliked her less as I learned Still I thought she could grow up and be independent Leibo like Dominiue used intellectualism to hid from his problems and justify acting horribly All this still withstanding the author shows what the 80s were like in Paris and touches really hard topics I think he crafted a crass and pointed story


  8. Jonathan F Jonathan F says:

    HOLY COW Garcia is one bold and intelligent man You might read reviews telling you that the story drags on and the plot never seems to become clear but I took a very deep message out of this novel This book was translated from the French and like most French writers Garcia adds his philosophical and political views through the four characters I wouldn't categorize it as a gay novel even though it focuses on it a lot; it goes deeper into the subject and looks at the political and personal implications that AIDSHIV causes It's an emotional book and KEEP READING if you're into a think hard kind of book you'll love it


  9. Sarah Sarah says:

    This book looks at political ideals Marxism sexual liberation Gay rights and nationalism and what happens to people when they come to an end Cultural journalist Elizabeth Levallois looks back on her life in 1980s Paris amidst the ravages of the AIDS epidemic and two relationships that bring her and three men together and then tear then apart Powerful sharp shocking but sympathetic Definitely worth a read


  10. Trevolio Trevolio says:

    this book was ok i think the characters sometimes lack depth i honestly didn't really like any of them and i wish there was sx in it honestly it was kind of boring but it mentions foucault and other french post structuralist philosophers and in it so it made me feel smart reading it lmao and also i learned about french politics in the 80s and 90s which i didn't know about which was cool
