Who Killed My Father -- Edouard Louis

Staff Pick

In Who Killed My Father, Edouard Louis has created both a tender love letter from a son to his father, chronicling the timeline of their strained and yet loving relationship, and a searing indictment of the French government’s policies against the poor and the marginalized. In this slim volume, less than a hundred pages in total, Louis navigates between two modes: loving melancholy for his father of which he writes: “I knew I loved you, but I felt a need to tell other people that I hated you” and seething anger for the upper and the ruling class who are indifferent towards the poor and marginalized. Who Killed My Father is required reading for our troubled times where political awareness must be matched with empathy and love.
