A War Remembered

Part military history, part memoir, part exorcism… Norman McFarlane’s book is about his time as a ‘troopie’ during conscription, the war in Angola, and the travails of trying to fit back into a ‘normal life’ in the aftermath of an ideological war.

In this interview, Niki Moore talks to Norman about his yet-unpublished book. And then he reads the first chapter himself.
