Summary

Penguin presents the audio edition of Who Killed My Father, written and read by Edouard Louis.

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.

In Who Killed My Father, Édouard Louis explores key moments in his father’s 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.

Short and to the point

A brutal depiction of a person whose - emotional, physical, psychological (sexual?)- growth was restricted; bound about by the barbed wire of poverty.

This sounds unspeakably grim but love shines through too; it's not a classic misery memoir, the author's voice makes it a smoother, more poetic listen.

I'd like to have learned more and beware this is a very short book - not much listening for your credit - but still I recommend.
