Review

‘An extraordinary achievement.’ Angela Carter

‘Remarkable…form, content and style fuse with complete success…one of the great war novels of the 20th century.’ William Boyd

‘Gripping and remarkable…I have never read a novel which gave me a stronger sense of the blind helplessness of war…unforgettable.’ Observer

‘A brilliant fusion of history, autobiography and imaginative speculation. An incredible literary achievement and almost intolerably moving.’ Anthony Burgess

From the Back Cover

“May well be that great British novel about the last war for which we’ve had to wait forty-odd years. Significantly enough, there are no heroics – scarcely any combatants, in fact. Only a British schoolboy lost in Shanghai when the Japanese invade, a vast company of the doomed, Shanghai itself and, in the background, history working itself out. An extraordinary achievement.”
ANGELA CARTER

“A remarkable journey into the mind of a growing boy … horror and humanity are blended into a unique and unforgettable fiction.”
SUNDAY TIMES

“An immensely powerful novel – in a class of its own for sheer imaginative force.”
DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Remarkable … form, content and style fuse with complete success … one of the great war novels of the 20th century.”
WILLIAM BOYD

“An extraordinary addition to our modern literature of war. Indeed, if there is still room for a masterpiece about the Second World War, then this is it.”
ROBERT NYE, 'Guardian'

“Explores a world light-years away from that of conventional war fiction.”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

“Gripping and remarkable … I have never read a novel which gave me a stronger sense of the blind helplessness of war … unforgettable.”
OBSERVER

“Ranks with the greatest British writing on the Second World War.”
THE TIMES

“A brilliant fusion of history, autobiography and imaginative speculation. An incredible literary achievement and almost intolerably moving.”
ANTHONY BURGESS

Winner of the 'Guardian' fiction prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.
