My Father's War by Adriaan Van Dis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Born in Holland shortly after the war, a young boy grows up an outsider in the midst of his family. He looks on as his mixed-race half-sisters are mocked for their 'blue skin', endures a brutal military training at his father's hands, and wonders about the wartime hardships his family suffered at the hands of the Japanese, experiences his family are never willing to discuss. My Father's War is a remarkable and powerful exploration of the impact of war and the legacy of empire on the lives of individuals, as well as an extraordinary examination of the relationship between a damaged father and a sensitive son.
