Chris Dorley-Brown - The Longest Way Round (Signed)
Signed 1st edition published by Overlapse, 2015
Format: Softcover with dustjacket, 215x270mm
Central themes are love and war; Chris’s father Peter was a prisoner of war in Germany during WWII, his mother was a GI bride, and the after-effects of the war lingered within the family. Simultaneously revealing a disappearing history and connecting past experience with the present, Dorley-Brown has assembled his own contemporary photographs alongside his deceased parents’ historical pictures, family letters and wartime documents.
Themes in this intimate book are universally identifiable within the European experience since the Second World War. Addressing subjects of personal identity and memory, the narrative reveals a painful family legacy while offering potential for a sense of closure.
