Product description

Product Description

Under the Same Moon, A story from the Great War is the memorable fiction debut of Australian writer Chris Durrant. A natural story-teller, the author weaves the true-life story of an uncle who fought the Germans in East Africa into a wide-ranging tale that encompasses a cast of characters that readers will find hard to forget. From the secure hamlets of Yorkshire to the bleak and brutal battlefields of Europe and Africa, Under the same moon, is a tale told with humour and humanity from the differing perspectives of its central characters — all of whom must navigate their utterly changed circumstances as the Great War reshapes their lives.

About the Author

Chris Durrant was born in India to British parents in the last days of the Raj. He was brought up in Kenya, had three enjoyable and not completely wasted years at Oxford, and went back to East Africa to work for the Commonwealth Development Corporation (CDC), a sort of British equivalent of the World Bank. After postings with CDC in Swaziland and Jamaica, he migrated with his family to Australia. He now lives with his wife Shirley in the hills above Perth, Western Australia. Children and grandchildren are scattered around the world, including Perth. Apart from financial management, Chris has worked as a pig farmer and a school-teacher. He is a rugby fanatic, an environmentalist, and a keen student of the history of the Great War, in which his father served and two of his uncles died. He has written his autobiography and a collection of whimsical essays about the school where he worked, as well as numerous songs and comic poems over the years. He has also co-authored several school accounting text-books. Under the Same Moon is his first novel.
