J’ACCUSE! Louis, the novel is an attack in Zola's spirit
"J’ACCUSE! Louis, the novel is an attack in Zola's spirit, "

"A scathing anklagelseakt against the arrogant politicians who killed his father."

"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."

"are you Allowed to write anything about the working class? "

"the Question has stalked me my entire författarliv has been going on since Jean Louis was born in 1992. It loads every single text I formulate. Ambivalence eats me. On a plane, I answer with a resounding yes. I defend, for example, Louis with beaks and claws, and see an interesting development in the Swedish newly published Who killed my father. "

"In his three autofiktiva work drills Louis in the most painful. He claims that the truth is right there. Where it hurts most-in the flesh. But what happens if the words sting even more of them that are depicted? ”From my childhood I have not a single positive memory”, is the first sentence of his debut, shake off the Eddy Bellegueule. "

"nFörfattarens the northern French barndomsstad be painted with unemployment and the brink of all shades of gray. The factory breaks down, the men of generation after generation, and the people förgrovas of aches and livsledan caused by the material shortage. The author's father broke his back on the job, was the person on long-term. Scratched never."

"Eddy Bellegueule ömsade skins in total, he changed his arbetarnamn to create a medelklasspersona with the name ”Jean Louis”. In Paris akademikerkretsar he met the sociologist Didier Eribon, who wrote the autobiographical essay Back to Reims. To affirm homosexuality was hard, but to put himself as arbetargrabb was a long time impossible. Louis's debut is dedicated to Eribon."

"nDebutromanen, which became an international success, forming a powerful movement away, a befrielsekramp. Away from the arbetarmachismon, away from the educational and kulturförakt. Away from the violence that is exercised against a skinny and sensitive guy. When the factory is the only livelihood are feminine traits in a son, the worst thing that can befall parents. "

"Louis avenge the violence he was subjected to with textual brutality. His incantatory repetitions with streaks of poetic formulations eats into the reader. Violence is the theme in everything he writes, and the question that is being asked is: Who owns the story? In his second novel, the Violent history of the sign he of a rape. He feels that his story is taken over by the police, who inserts the ”north african look”. Everything distorted."

"Myself, I ask myself constantly if I can write something true about the working class when the last thing I want is to hurt my mother. "

"Is the art worth the price if it means that workers who are daily subject of verbal violence from ledarsidor and politicians in addition to get a spottloska in the face of their children who made the groups?"

"nSjälv I ask myself constantly if I can write something true about the working class when the last thing I want is to hurt my mother. When Édouard Louis in the Violent history mentions that his mom works in home care, he writes how repulsive and dirty the work is."

"personally, I prefer to exalt the hemvårdaryrket that makes sense. That is the salary and the employment relationship it is wrong. Not the job itself. At least put my mother there so when she became a nursing assistant in home care. Never had she been equally appreciated."

"Unfortunately, Göran Persson and the minister of finance Kjell-Olof Feldts slaughter on the public sector at the beginning of the 1990s to the mother fell through in the stress. Disabled at 50. Why do you klassresenärer you working-class? The question I have often been. It is set by those who love Édouard Louis. Love to read about the worker's rudeness. "

"My answer is that it is about power. I write about people who do not have any platform where they can write their version of what happened."

"nNyligen wrote the author Patrik Lundberg at the Swedish newspaper Expressen kultursida the essential nature of the text Who killed my mother? inspired by Édouard Louis book. A gripping story of the author's single and part-time mother and her stoic hardship that her children would cope. Never a lunch. Never a trip. Just as Édouard Louis accusing Lundberg named politicians for killing his mother. Tillhygget was the sadistic policies that knocked my legs away on sick leave. She died in 67, years old. "

"it's interesting, Édouard Louis moved closer to my stance in Who killed my father. He returns to childhood memories. The light was actually there. Without sentimentality förmänskligas the father."

"If one was a movement away is the runner-up a homecoming. The famous son is calling in with his seriously ill father. The power is unclear: ”The fact that the son speaks and only he is brutal for the both of them.”"

"the Son writes in a respectful ”you” and it konfrontativa language – in Zola's spirit – is directed against the society and the named politicians. The father got all the lower health insurance and he was forced to start working despite the cracked back. As a street sweeper! All according to the neo-liberal contempt for weakness, which is familiar from the Swedish politics."

"Who killed my father is a book that lågar of klassresenärsförfattarens burden. Who'll testify to that class kills if not they? "

"nEmmanuel Macron, said that ”latmaskarna” prevented the social reforms. Ostentatiously, he lowered welfare payments by 5 euros a month in the same moment that he lowered taxes for the most wealthy."

"I don't know if the people behind the Yellow vests had read Édouard Louis book. It was given out prior to the uprising and provides a clear example of why a large part of the French have had enough of being abused by the arrogant politicians."

"Who killed my father is a book that lågar of klassresenärsförfattarens burden. Who'll testify to that class kills if not they? It would not surprise me if Édouard Louis regret his change of name. Eddy Bellegueule is tougher."

"In the highest degree more literary."
