The young writer Édouard Louis is the greatest literary sensation in France since Michel Houellebecq. Ivo van Hove adapted his novel Who killed my father into a monologue, especially for Hans Kesting. It is a gripping story about a father who at fifty is a physical and mental wreck from working in the heavy industry of northern France. Édouard Louis also writes about how, as a young gay man, he was damned to be an outcast by his own working-class family. A bold and brilliant text.
