A Father's Affair by Karel van Loon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What happens to the father of a 13-year-old son, when he discovers that he has been infertile all his life? On his quest to discover the biological father of his son, Armin Minderhout, takes the reader on an extraordinary journey. From the day he first met the love of his life, Monika, to the moment, only five years later, when he loses her to a fatal illness; from the tortuous and occasionally hilarious moments of adult relationships, to the intimate, tender rapport with the little boy he believes to be his son. Armin is forced to reconsider everything he has ever believed in ...With the page-turning suspense of a 'whodunnit', A Father's Affair probes the eternal question of how well we know the ones we love. Touching, at times extremely funny and erotically playful, it is a story of universal appeal - a stylish, acutely insightful and utterly captivating read.
