From the bestselling and PEN/Faulkner Award-winning author of
Joseph O Neill s grandfathers-one Turkish, one Irish-were both imprisoned for suspected subversion during the Second World War. The Irish grandfather, a handsome rogue from a family of small farmers, was an active member of the IRA. O Neill s other grandfather, a debonair hotelier from the tiny and threatened Turkish Christian minority, was interned by the British in Palestine on suspicion of being an Axis spy.
With intellect, compassion, and grace, O Neill sets the stories of these individuals against the history of the last century s most inhuman events.
