Horn's autobiography explores the story of his Dutch middle-class family and seeks to answer what it means to replace one nationality with another. He begins with his years in Holland during the Second World War, discusses his family's immigration to Canada, and explains how the family built a life for itself in Victoria. Visiting Holland in 1961-62, while on an exchange scholarship in Germany, he realized that though he was both Dutch and Canadian, he could never be entirely one or the other. Several of the themes that run throughout the narrative relate to the often uneasy transfer of Dutch values to a Canadian context, the influence that Holland still has on Horn's life, and his own thoughts on multiculturalism as public policy in Canada. Becoming Canadian is a timely memoir, and Horns consideration of the process of assimilation, andof his own position as an 'invisible immigrant, ' is topical and revealing.
