Blood-Dark Track: A Family Historyby Joseph O'Neill
Synopses & Reviews
From the bestselling and PEN/Faulkner Award-winning author of Netherland, a fascinating, personal, and beautifully crafted family history.
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.
Featuring a new preface, a family history by the author of Netherland traces the parallel imprisonments of his two grandfathers, one an Irish IRA-member and the other a Turkish hotelier who was accused of being an Axis spy. Reprint.
