Description

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - "On Friday night you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hate."
On November 13, 2015, Antoine Leiris’s wife, Hélène Muyal-Leiris, was killed by terrorists while attending a rock concert at the Bataclan Theater in Paris, in the deadliest attack on France since World War II. Three days later, Leiris wrote an open letter addressed directly to his wife’s killers, which he posted on Facebook. He refused to be cowed or to let his seventeen-month-old son’s life be defined by Hélène’s murder. He refused to let the killers have their way: “For as long as he lives, this little boy will insult you with his happiness and freedom.” Instantly, that short Facebook post caught fire, and was reported on by newspapers and television stations all over the world. In his determination to honor the memory of his wife, he became an international hero to everyone searching desperately for a way to deal with the horror of the Paris attacks and the grim shadow cast today by the threat of terrorism.
 
Now Leiris tells the full story of his grief and struggle. You Will Not Have My Hate is a remarkable, heartbreaking, and, indeed, beautiful memoir of how he and his baby son, Melvil, endured in the days and weeks after Hélène’s murder. With absolute emotional courage and openness, he somehow finds a way to answer that impossible question: how can I go on? He visits Hélène’s body at the morgue, has to tell Melvil that Mommy will not be coming home, and buries the woman he had planned to spend the rest of his life with.
Leiris’s grief is terrible, but his love for his family is indomitable. This is the rare and unforgettable testimony of a survivor, and a universal message of hope and resilience. Leiris confronts an incomprehensible pain with a humbling generosity and grandeur of spirit. He is a guiding star for us all in these perilous times. His message—hate will be vanquished by love—is eternal.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Gildart Jackson provides a heartbreakingly nuanced performance of this short but significant audiobook. The Bataclan Theatre in Paris was the site of a horrifying terrorist act that took 88 lives in 2015. Leiris describes the first moments of his discovery of the attack, and his wife's death, while he is taking care of his son at home. News trickles in, friends send messages, until eventually the full picture of the carnage becomes known. Jackson's voice communicates both the pain and resilience of Leiris's experience as the author pushes back against the expectation that he express hate. Jackson's performance is reserved, a bit measured but gripping, as he voices Leiris's account of helping his young son through his grief while facing his own. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine

        April 15, 2017

        With elegant control, narrator Gildart Jackson embodies the words of French journalist Leiris, who bears witness to the murder of his wife, Hélène Muyal-Leiris, one of the victims of the November 13, 2015, terrorist attack at Paris's Bataclan Theatre. Three days later, Leiris wrote directly to her killers via Facebook: "On Friday evening you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hatred." His post went viral, prompting the publication of this memoir less than a year later. Even as he learns to be both mother and father to his 17-month-old child, Leiris faces the everyday reminders of the loss of Hélène's presence. His journalist's training keeps his writing spare but exact, never allowing for a moment of overindulgence. His is a tribute to his beloved's life, a promise to their precious son, and an indelible declaration against her killers: "For as long as he lives, this little boy will insult you with his happiness and freedom." VERDICT With hate too easy an option in this current climate of finger-pointing, Leiris's honorable response to this horrific tragedy becomes a gift of inspiring humanity. ["Leiris is to be commended for not providing easy answers nor engaging in the platitudinous language that too often infects memoirs of this sort.... Necessary reading for all of us": LJ 11/15/16 starred review of the Penguin Press hc.]--Terry Hong, Smithsonian BookDragon, Washington, DC
