Who Killed My Father is the story of a tough guy the story of the little boy I never was. The story of my father. What a beautiful book MAX PORTER In Who Killed My Father, douard Louis explores key moments in his fathers life, and the tenderness and disconnects in their relationship. Told with the fire of a writer determined on social justice, and with the compassion of a loving son, the book urgently and brilliantly engages with issues surrounding masculinity, class, homophobia, shame and social poverty. It unflinchingly takes aim at systems that disadvantage those they seek to exclude those who have their expectations, hopes and passions crushed by a society which gives them little thought. douard Louis is the vanguard of Frances new generation of political writers Evening Standard

Edouard Louis [is] the vanguard of Frances new generation of political writers -- Arjun Neil Alim * Evening Standard * Edouard Louis speaks with an emotional authenticity and a stylistic confidence that is hard to ignore -- Tim Adams * Observer * This short work tackles the intersections of class, gender and sexuality... Louis gives voice to the way the cruel, crude hegemony of masculinity has essentially destroyed his fathers life, making him as much a victim of the violence he inflicted as of the violence he endured -- Lauren Elkin * Guardian * This valuable tale brings emotion to a discussion led by numbers, encouraging us to remember the real human lives affected by policy and political point-scoring -- Todd Gillespie * Financial Times * To understand what is happening now in France, or indeed, all over Europe, this is an essential text * Irish Times *
