Product Description
From the bestselling and PEN/Faulkner Award-winning author of <i>Netherland</i>, a fascinating, personal, and beautifully crafted family history.<br><br>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.<br><br>With intellect, compassion, and grace, O'Neill sets the stories of these individuals against the history of the last century's most inhuman events.
