In the award-winning My Father's Son, Ric Throssell tells the moving and controversial story of his life. The son of celebrated writer Katharine Susannah Prichard and Hugo Throssell VC, he worked for the Department of Foreign Affairs from 1943 to 1983 and then served as Director of the Commonwealth Foundation in London. As the son of a pioneer of the Western Australian Communist Party, he attracted the suspicion of ASIO and struggled with prejudice throughout his career. It was only at its close that he learned of a secret self as portrayed in the security service archives. He was ultimately cleared by the Royal Commission on Espionage, but remained dogged by suspicion his whole life. This is the stirring account of the life of an enigmatic Australian man.
