Publisher's Summary

Family Romance is a beautifully written memoir in which John Lanchester joins the dots of his parents' history, their extraordinary secrets, and the shape of their shared life. From his grandparents' beginnings in rural Ireland and colonial Rhodesia, Lanchester navigates through his parents' lives: his father Bill's devastating war-time separation from his parents; his mother Julia's tragic first love, her decision to become a nun, and her adoption of a new identity. Lanchester illuminates their characters and Julia's motives with moving insight.
