Inhalt
This nonfiction book by the French young literary star Édouard Louis is both a searing j´accuse of the viciously entrenched French class system and a wrenchingly tender love letter to his father. »Who Killed My Father« rips into France´s long neglect of the working class and its overt contempt for the poor, accusing the complacent French - at the minimum - of negligent homicide. The author goes to visit the ugly gray town of his childhood to see his dying father, barely fifty years old, who can hardly walk or breathe. But hand in hand with searing, specific denunciations are tender passages of a love between father and son, once damaged by shame, poverty and homophobia. Yet tenderness reconciles them, even as the state is killing off his father.
