"Autopsy of a Father first appeared in French as Autopsie d'un `père, Copyright 2016 by Flammarion"--Title page verso.
Summary "When a young woman returns to her childhood home after her estranged father's death, she begins to piece together the final years of his life. What changed him from a prominent left-wing journalist to a bitter racist who defended the murder of a defenseless African immigrant? Kramer exposes a country gripped by intolerance and violence to unearth the source of a family's fall from grace. Set in Paris and its suburbs, and inspired by the real-life scandal of a French author and intellectual, Autopsy of a Father blends sharp observations about familial dynamics with resonant political and philosophical questions--taking a scalpel to the racism and anti-immigrant sentiment spreading just beneath the skin of modern society"-- Provided by publisher.
