- 45: My Father’s Footsteps
What a wonderfully, interesting read with the added benefit of illuminating a very turbulent period in Canadian and world history. The depression era was unbelievably harsh and ushered in the birth of the social programmes that we now take for granted in Canada. The characters in West's book are very real and struggle with the racial intolerance and social injustices that were a reality of those hard times.
West has produced a fictional account with great insight, and leaves the reader continually questioning how he or she would have behaved when challenged with the very difficult choices of the thirties.
(Not) Following in My Father's Footsteps
December 23, - Published on Amazon. I had read West's first novel and his book of short stories. Neither prepared me for this novel about the 30s in Montreal and Spain. I had no idea he could write with such depth. He has added flesh and blood to the bones I had been taught and that I had taught others. This is a book worthy of being read by anyone interested in history and in families.
The two men in this story were groomed to follow in their fathers' footsteps. They could have bypassed the worst of the Depression.
