Una Suselli O’Connell: excerpts from The Absent Prince (memoir)

Host, Carole Harmon

Una's family memoir is based on journals and correspondence of several generations of her family. Primarily set in the twentieth century, it focuses the universal theme of war and its devastating effects on family life. One legacy of war is a cultural pattern which has arisen of men being physically absent, or emotionally unavailable, in family life, not only through actually fighting a war, but by continuing this pattern of absence through work and educational customs.

Una is an educator and writer who lives in Hertfordshire, near London, England.
