Reactions and Reviews

This well-written zine follows Father from his days as a young doctor in practice with Peter Alcott, through his marriage to Margaret and blacklisting, and finally to his life in the tunnels. His romance with Grace is particularly poignant. Well conceived, written, edited. A good read.[1]
