A Dutiful Son

Author: Pascal Bruckner

Translator: Mike Mitchell   Cover design: Marie Lane  

Bruckner’s memoir about his father’s brutality towards him as a child after the war, as well as the man’s defiant Nazi sympathies and anti-semitic views, often makes for a relentlessly hard read. This is an escape manual: how to escape from your family, he says, “is to find others”. Bruckner cannot escape his father, but he does ‘defeat’ him.
