Dadland

Dadland

A Journey into Uncharted Territory

By  Keggie Carew

A daughter’s journey into her father’s past – a story of war and grief, jealousy and madness, mischief and fierce love

The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller, 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.


‘OH THIS BOOK. Beautiful and fierce and brave. Memory and war and family and loss and, well, wow’ Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk
