A Family Affair (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Family - the very word evokes strong emotions. Feelings positive and negative, of the bonds but also the stresses, primitive feelings that draw from the past and reach out to the future in a complex, shifting web of love and thanks, yet also of conflict and guilt. In a social context, we in the 21st centruy find ourselves tracing our broken society to the disintegration of the family life and values stemming from the 1960s. And it is in the sixties that our stroy, based throughout on real-life incidents, is set. We see the problems of migration, from a traditional village culture to the flux of urban life, the encounters with the new drugs and the resulting trials of crime, assault, rape and the edge of madness, and alongside, the inevitable universal sadness endemic to humanity, of failure, mystery and loss. And yes, love, too, intimate and human, for there are good people out there. How do they deal with it? How would you? Mad, bad, sad, yet also bright and thrilling sweet. And it all really happened.
