The Boy on the Tricycle

The Boy on the Tricycle – Marcel Weyland’s extraordinary story, describes the three shapers of his life: a beautiful woman, their witch’s castle home and a national epic poem; his life in three continents and his three professions – architecture, law and his multi-award winning English translations of Polish poetry. He describes how he survived World War Two as one of the refugees saved by the Japanese Diplomat, Chiune Sugihara. The memoir is also the tale of a long-lasting love affair which very successfully transcended differences of nationality and religion.
The culture and history against which the story is played out are dominant themes of the memoir, including vignettes of pre-war eastern Europe, pre-war Japan and wartime China, and the post-war innocence of Sydney. Generously illustrated.
