Summary

Nino en la noche es la novela que ha revolucionado la crítica francesa. Escrita a cuatro manos por un joven matrimonio, esta historia de rabia social y belleza nocturna ha sido comparada con Virginie Despentes o Michael Houellebecq.

¿Qué hace ese chaval intentando alistarse en la Legión Francesa? ¿Quién es ese chico que aguanta erguido los aullidos del sargento? Se llama Nino, tiene apenas veinte años y se permite narrar su historia en primera persona. Una historia que empieza aquí, ante otra oportunidad perdida: las pruebas de drogas han dado positivo y es rechazado. Poco más le queda que su París decrépito, su suerte tambaleante, su boca deslenguada, su cuerpo lleno de cocaína y también eso que le mantiene con vida: su novia, a la que ama con locura. Porque Nino en la noche es ante todo una historia de amor.

Escrita a cuatro manos por una joven pareja, este es el relato de una existencia al margen, de una juventud ahogada por una sociedad demasiado injusta, demasiado cara, demasiado dura. Una historia de rabia social y belleza nocturna, de vidas estancadas que encuentran su vía de escape entre los flashes y los cuerpos sudados en antros donde retumba el techno. Este es el relato fulgurante de una juventud unida en un after infinito, una novela que, a cien por hora, poética y ardiente, retrata una generación que se aferra al amor mientras intenta encontrar su lugar donde ya nadie les espera.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Nino At Night is the novel that has shaken up French critics. Written with four hands by a young couple, this story of social outrage and nocturnal beauty has been compared to Virginie Despentes or Michael Houellebecq.
 
What is that kid doing trying to enlist in the French Legion? Who is that boy that stands straight while taking a yelling from his sergeant? His name is Nino, he's only twenty years old and his story is told in first person. A story that begins here, with another missed opportunity: the drug tests have come back positive and he's rejected. He doesn't have much left except his decrepit Paris, his unstable luck, his foul mouth, his body filled with cocaine, and also that which has kept him alive: his girlfriend, with whom he's madly in love. Because Nino At Night is above all a love story.
 
Written with four hands by a young couple, this is a tale of life on the margins, of youth strangled by a society too unjust, too expensive, too difficult. A story of social outrage and nocturnal beauty, of lives bogged down who find their escape route among flashes and sweaty bodies in clubs where techno blares. This is a dazzling tale of youth united in an infinite after, a novel that, at a hundred miles per hour, poetic and burning, portrays a generation that clings to love while trying to find their place where no one is waiting for them."
