Dadland: A Journey into Uncharted Territory

by Keggie Carew - £8.99  Vintage Publishing (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784703158 | ISBN 10: 178470315x

Winner of the Costa Biography Award
 
Keggie Carew grew up under the spell of an unorthodox, enigmatic father. An undercover guerrilla agent during the Second World War, in peacetime he lived on his wits and dazzling charm. But these were not always enough to sustain a family.
 
As his memory began to fail, Keggie embarked on a quest to unravel his story once and for all. Dadland is that journey. It takes us into shadowy corners of history, a madcap English childhood, the poignant breakdown of a family, the corridors of dementia and beyond.
