The French Revolution represents a pivotal moment within the history of personhood in France, where gender and national differences provided the foundations of society. As such, these constructs feature as ideological battlegrounds in the search for identity and self-expression within the Romantic literature published between the revolutions of 1789 and 1830. This book considers Germaine de Staël's and Claire de Duras's depictions of men's and women's shared and diverging lived experiences to offer an innovative transnational perspective on the usually male-focused mal du siècle . Its methodology combines feminist revisions of the novel, situated reading practices, and life writing research with an intersectional approach to gender and nationhood. This framework presents a dialectical relationship between sameness and difference on formal and thematic levels that challenges the construction and enforcement of binaries within early nineteenth-century legislation, discourse, and culture. Beyond Staël's and Duras's intertextual relationship, this book promotes the importance of an understudied period in literary scholarship, clarifies women's role within French Romanticism, and explores the tense relationship between the self and the nation.

»Bei dir geht ja nichts ab«, sagte Bobby. »Lass mal die Flinte sehen«, meinte Kevin. Ted möchte die beiden so gerne beeindrucken, denn Freunde gewinnen ist schwer, wenn das Haus schon zum Verkauf steht, weil die Eltern in der kleinen Stadt keine Arbeit mehr finden. Er zeigt ihnen das Gewehr, geht nur einen Moment aus dem Zimmer. Da fällt ein Schuss, und Bobby liegt tot auf dem Esszimmerboden. Man kann an etwas schuld sein, auch wenn man es nicht getan hat. Einsamkeit und Verschweigen lasten schwer auf Ted, der niemandem sagen darf, was wirklich passiert ist, dem Vater nicht und schon gar nicht der Polizei. Und wenn man sich so verloren fühlt, gerät man schnell an die falschen Freunde. Denn plötzlich interessieren sich George und seine merkwürdige Gruppe »American Youth« für den Jungen, den in der Schule alle meiden. Und Ted will irgendwo dazu gehören, auch wenn ihm das Gerede über amerikanische Werte nicht geheuer sind. Erst als sich die gewalttätigen Aktionen der Gruppe auch gegen Kevin und seine Mutter richten, die Bobbys Tod so wenig verkraftet haben wie er, findet Ted die Kraft, sich zu lösen, den Mut zu einer eigenen Entscheidung. Phil LaMarche wurde 1976 in New Hampshire geboren.

Seine Kurzgeschichte »In the Tradition of My Family« wurde verfilmt, »American Youth« ist sein erster Roman.
