TALK BY THE AUTHOR
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 her father’s 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 impact of dementia and beyond.
Dadland is the winner of the Costa Biography Award 2016 and a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller.
