I hated those years, count them as the worst years of my life. I was confused and scared too; couldn't believe the incredibly horrible things that were happening; the tearing down of family life as we had known it. Julian Barnes set it down in print -- the cruelties, and the biblical concept of children having to bear the consequences of parents' behaviour. Maybe that's why he was nominated for awards.
