Brian Johnstone discusses the experience of discovering unknown siblings in his first prose book Double Exposure. Rich in nostalgia for the post-war years, it explores the many reasons why he was never entrusted with the truth. A touching story of family secrets and unexpected revelations, the memoir vividly evokes the author’s ’50s upbringing, but pulls no punches on the social conventions of the time.
‘A memoir not of misery but of love deflected and deferred.’ – James Robertson
