About the Author

Philippe Besson is the author of a number of award-winning novels and screenplays. The French edition of Lie With Me sold over 120,000 copies, was a number one bestseller, and won the prestigious Maison de la Presse prize.


In the Absence of Men is a short, bold and original novel which beautifully captures the romance and amorality of gilded youth. It is particularly notable for a totally convincing portrait of Proust
*Michael Arditti, The Independent*

An astonishing love story, beautifully told.
*Time Out*

Besson is brave to include Proust but his courage pays off: this is a beautiful, dreamily experimental novel unafraid of describing either joy or pain.
