Never at Home

£9.99

Product description

A good copy of this 1992 paper back book with no internal markings or annotations. Pages are slightly tanned throughout but this does not interfere with the legibility of the text. The cover is in tact but corners and edges slightly bumped.

In "My Son's Father", Moraes narrated the story of his life up to the age of 22 - this book brings his life into the 1990s, revisiting and recollecting the major events in his life since the triumph that began his literary career. The growing up of his son, his marriage to actress Leela Naidu, his growing fame as a poet and a writer, his journalistic adventures in Bhutan, Chile, Iran, Vietnam and Israel and Zaire all leave their mark. At home neither in the West he fled to, nor in the East he returned to, this book ends with the author still searching for a measure of peace - and a place he can call home.
