Through a Long Absence: Words from My Father's Wars by Joy Passanante
Vandal Book Club: Third Book

Book 3: Through a Long Absence: Words from My Father's Wars

January – February 2018

Against the backdrop of World War II, Joy Passanante’s touching new book, Through a Long Absence: Words from My Father’s Wars, is the saga of a wartime medical unit, a passionate long-distance love, the making of a surgeon and two first-generation American families. Told through her father’s eyes—drawing on hundreds of his letters to his beloved wife, his four-volume wartime diary and his paintings—Passanante masterfully recreates his wartime journey and physically retraces his steps more than sixty years later in an attempt to understand a time in her parents’ lives that they’d spoken about very little.

Stay tuned for upcoming books!
