A Family Madness

by Thomas Keneally

Category: Fiction / General
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton General Division
Publication date: 1 August 1987
Number of pages: 350

Inspired by a true incident that took place in Australia in 1984, this powerful and disturbing novel focuses on Rudi Kabbel, a survivor of Nazi-occupied Belorussia, and Terry Delaney, a young Australian rugby player who falls in love with Kabbel's daughter. With the optimism and innocence of those unscathed by war, Delaney gropes to understand Kabbel's outlook on life. All too slowly he grasps the implications of Kabbel's vision, too late to averts its tragic consequences.
