General Note
"First published in 2020 as 'Love me tender' by Flammarion, Paris"--Title page verso.
The daughter of an illustrious French family whose members include a former Prime Minister, a model, and a journalist, Constance Debré abandoned her marriage and legal career in 2015 to write full-time and begin a relationship with a woman. Her transformation from affluent career woman to broke single lesbian was chronicled in her 2018 novel 'Play boy', praised by Virginie Despentes for its writing that is at once "flippant and consumed by anxiety." In 'Love Me Tender', writing graphically about sex, rupture, longing, and despair, Debré deals courageously with love in its many forms, reframing what it means to be a mother beyond conventional expectations.
Translated from the French.
