French suicide: 'Racist' author taps into malaise
by Joshua Melvin
A controversial new book by French polemicist Eric Zemmour is flying off the shelves and shows no sign of stopping. The notorious right-wing writer and polemicist appears to have struck a chord with a French public feeling disillusioned and "lost".
Who is Eric Zemmour?
He's a journalist, author and TV personality whose new book "Le Suicide Français - Ces quarante années qui ont défait la France" (The French suicide - the 40 years that defeated France) has been selling an average of 15,000 copies per day, since it was released on October 1st.
He is seemingly everywhere at the moment with appearances on radio, TV and in person with his book's on track to sell 500,000 copies. In France's that's considered a lot of books.
