This is a story that was always meant to be told. During his later life John Fear had prepared a lot of the book, along with notes for chapters that he knew would not be completed. It is only now, over twenty years later, that the book is finally being published. It contains original content written by John, along with diary notes, letters and magazine articles. The final chapters are written by his second eldest son, Alastair. The memoir is introduced and edited by his eldest son, Robert, as a tribute to his father’s amazing life.
“Great intro, so much is said in just a few words. The author has put lots of feeling into it too. A quality presentation. Excellent cover, excellent photos, chapter titles and accuracy. Lovely evocative writing.
Well, thank heaven that Robert Fear decided to publish his father's gem of a book! This is not to be missed - I simply couldn't put it down! John Fear certainly had an entertaining command of the English language and tells a wonderful tale of his life.
There is great variety from cosy family memories to horrific scenes in a coup. A variety of techniques are used to portray this memoir - diary entries, a telegram, and letters. I like the travel aspect to this memoir too - I wasn't expecting it.
A fantastic book. A wonderful and powerful tribute."
