Translated from the French.
'Who Killed My Father' is a fascinating insight into the life of Édouard Louis's father, which urgently and brilliantly engages with issues surrounding masculinity, class, homophobia, shame and social poverty. It explores the key moments and difficulties in their father-son relationship, and reconstructs the man he was and is today. The book unflinchingly takes aim at governments whose policies disadvantage those they seek to exclude - those like Louis's father who have their expectations, hopes and passions crushed by a society which gives them little thought.
