Format: Paperback
On picking up this book with the cover image of a guy urinating on a window in an office building, airport terminal or somewhere like this I assumed this book would be about something completely different to what it is. I was expecting a witty British first person comedy narrative, like Up a Tree in the Park at Night with a Hedgehog, and this sort of thing. However The Name You Once Gave is a different type of novel. It's still very good though.

Basic plot revolves around a teacher named Daniel. He visits a man named Brownjohn, to ask if his students can interview him about local history. He is surprised when the man has a photograph of his mother and a dark skinned man he says is named Christopher. Brownjohn also mentions he used to live a house, which Daniel knows as the address where he was born. Daniel wonders if this Christopher is his father. Daniel is of African appearance, his mother is Caucasian with blond hair and has always refused to discuss who his father is. As a dark skinned boy growing up in a community where he was the minority, Daniel couldn't always relate. Now as an adult about to marry a pregnant girlfriend, he asks his mother once again about his father but she again refuses and claims this Christopher she doesn't remember, and he definitely is not the father. Christopher is determined this time though, to get to the truth, through going through his mother's possessions or researching her past, nothing will stop him this time!

The Name You Once Gave Me is a great mildly violent as Daniel explores areas people don't want him to at times thriller.
