Two revelations, coming to light after the deaths of his father and mother, prompted Brian Johnstone to turn a poet’s eye on his 50s & 60s childhood, whose conventional surface concealed so much, and explore his parents’ lives before and during World War II.

Described by Jim Crumley in The Scots Magazine as ‘A profoundly moving elegy written in a minor key; a mature, courageous, honest, and extremely likeable book’, Johnstone’s memoir Double Exposure ponders why he was never trusted with the truth and vividly evokes his post-war upbringing. Sure to resonate with baby-boomers, and anyone with an interest in family secrets and long-lost siblings, this is an event not to be missed.
