Product description

Review

'Cercas's writing has echoes of Scott Fitzgerald in the intense, shining clarity of its emotion, and of Faulkner' Independent 'A deeply affecting novel. A reflection on war, friendship, success and failure ... Cercas's novel carries a powerful warning for the war-hungry modern world' Scotland on Sunday 'Presents his narrator's foibles in a lucid, supple prose, well-matched to the novel's darker elements' Financial Times 'Engrossing ... it has verve and flair' Time Out --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

The new novel from the bestselling author of Soldiers of Salamis uncovers the harrowing secrets at the centre of two men's intertwined lives. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
