Boy Erased Book Excerpt:

The New York Times bestselling memoir about identity, love and understanding. Now a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges, directed by Joel Edgerton. "Every sentence of the story will stir your soul" (O Magazine). The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to “cure” him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness. By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.

Actor Network Theory at the Movies Book Excerpt:

This book is one of the first to apply the theoretical tools proposed by French philosopher Bruno Latour to film studies. Through the example of the Hollywood Teen Film and with a particular focus on Actor-Network Theory (ANT), the book delineates how Teen Film has established itself as one of Hollywood’s most consistent and dynamic genres. While many productions may recycle formulaic patterns, there is also a proliferation of cinematic coming-of-age narratives that are aesthetically and politically progressive, experimental, and complex. The case studies develop a Latourian film semiotics as a flexible analytical approach which raises new questions, not only about the history, types and tropes of teen films, but also about their aesthetics, mediality, and composition. Through an exploration of a wide and diverse range of examples from the past decade, including films by female and African-American directors, urban and rural perspectives, and non-heteronormative sexualities, Actor-Network Theory at the Movies demonstrates how the classic Teen Film canon has been regurgitated, expanded, and renewed.

Boy Erased Book Excerpt:

Arkansas, 2004. Garrard a dix-neuf ans lorsque ses parents apprennent son homosexualité. Pour ces baptistes ultraconservateurs, la chose est inconcevable : leur fils doit être «guéri». Garrard est conduit dans un centre de conversion, où tout est mis en œuvre pour le forcer à changer. Où la Bible fait loi. Où Harry Potter est un livre déviant, où écouter Beethoven est interdit. Où on lui inflige une véritable torture mentale pour corriger sa prétendue déviance. Mais comment cesser d'être soi-même? Entre Call Me By Your Name d'André Aciman et Pourquoi être heureux quand on peut être normal? de Jeanette Winterson, Boy Erased est une immersion glaçante dans l'intégrisme religieux, le portrait émouvant d'un jeune gay en plein doute mais aussi un message d'espoir sur l'affirmation de soi. Récit autobiographique acclamé par la critique et les lecteurs, traduit dans le monde entier, Boy Erased est adapté au cinéma en 2019 par Joel Edgerton avec Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman et Russell Crowe.
