The Night My Dad Became English

The 22nd November marks the fiftieth anniversary of one of the most significant and shocking events in 20th century history, the assassination of President John F Kennedy. Most people know exactly where they were and what they were doing when the news hit. Inspired by this concept, three major writers give their own spin on that day through fictional stories of ordinary people as their lives are caught in that precise moment, perhaps even undergoing monumental changes in their own lives?

News of JFK's assassination forces Irishman, Eamon Conroy, to question his whole sense of identity.
