5.0 out of 5 stars 'A lull in the war', 13 Jun. 2011
This review is from: There's No Home (Paperback)
A hugely compassionate account - based in part on the author's own WW2 experience - of the relationships which develop between British soldiers who have just pushed the Germans out of Siciliy and the women of the town of Catania. The story is told as much from the women's point of view as of the officers and men. It is, as Baron says, a story not of conflict, but of the brief flowering of the human spirit in lulls in the fighting.

Baron is finding a new readership both for his war novels (above all 'From the City From the Plough') and his novels of post-war London ('The Lowlife', 'Rosie Hogarth'). This is among his best writing - among the best accounts of humanity amid war. And this edition is splendid - including a photograph found in Baron's papers after his death of the Sicilian woman who may well be the model for one of the main characters.
