Constance Debré is one of those writers who shake things up. Born into an illustrious family of political leaders, her career path initially followed a certain inevitability: schooling at Henri-IV, training at Assas and ESSEC, lawyer, mother... 
However, one day, she quit this comfortable life, gave up her profession, left her husband and came out. A career as a writer then opened up for her, in which she testifies to her strength of character but also the suffering caused by these choices. In Play Boy (2018) and Love Me Tender (2020), she opens up with uncommonly incisive writing. In them, she talks, without false modesty, about sexuality, love and motherhood in light of the break with her son. 
In her new book, Nom (Flammarion), which could also be read as "no", she gives a proper refutation of her family heritage. She returns to her childhood to challenge it and assert her determination to become herself by bringing her social and emotional life into line with her sexual identity and the amorous inclinations her heart dictates.  

Moderated by Pascal Claude, journalist, presenter of Dans quel Monde on vit and Et dieu dans tout ça? on La Première (RTBF).
