I got knocked up like a poor girl. This is the story of Anne, a young woman who decides to abort to finish her studies and escape the social constraints of a working-class family. France in 1963: a society that censures women’s desires. And sex in general. This simple but cruel story follows the itinerary of a woman who decides to go against the law. Anne has only a little time before her. Her exams are just around the corner, and her baby bump is growing fast…
Audrey Diwan was born in 1980. She is a journalist for Technikart magazine, a columnist for Glamour and a freelance editor. Inspired by American authors such as Chuck Palahniuk and John Kennedy Toole, she published her first novel La Fabrication du mensonge on the theme of marriage.
