Über diesen Titel


Book by ONeill Joseph


Published family annals generally fall into just two categories: fascinating and why did the author and publisher think anyone else would be interested. This particular one is definitely in the first category. Joseph O'Neill, like most young people, was obviously aware of his parents' fathers and mothers but had no special interest in exactly who they were or what they had done. Two chance discoveries changed all that. He found in the storeroom of the Mersin hotel, run by his formidable chain-smoking Turkish grandmother, an account by her husband, Joseph Dakad, of his arrest in Palestine in 1942 on suspicion of being a German spy. Later, when the O'Neills were living in The Hague, he found some cuttings enclosed in a Dostoevsky novel revealing details of his paternal grandfather Jim O'Neill's death in Eire in 1973, disclosing that he had been a prominent member of the IRA. These two coincidences set Joseph O'Neill on a quest to find out about the lives of his grandfathers which has resulted in a book outstanding for its frankness about political fanaticism, injustice, family secrecy, loyalty and delusions and its recognition and honest portrayal of two men, flawed like the rest of us but steadfast in their beliefs and attachment to their families.
