Anni in tasca
An other me
What does it mean “to become yourself”? To face the distant world outside the comfortable walls of home. To let oneself be shocked and awed by the relationships with other people ant by the possibility of being refused and rejected. To look at your family without fears and sentimentalism. To expose your inner, intimate self, not hiding the pain of wanting to be different from who you are.
In this bold, unconventional novel, Bernard Friot, acclaimed French author, tells the adolescence of an invisible, “normal” nerd. The secret torment of loneliness, diversity and doubt in the difficult experience of a boarding school, away from home, away rom himself, away from everything.
