In the name of the father & of the son
Winner of The European Union Prize for Literature 2011
A crippled WWII veteran is on his mother's grave accompanied by his youngest son. The son is shocked as he notices his father shedding a tear. Suddenly he learns that soldiers aren't made of steel; they cry too. Written in fluid prose with fleeting moments of pure poetry and references to the father's war diary, In the Name of the Father (and of the son) is the son's reflection on masculinity as he struggles to differentiate between myth and truth.
