Description
Winner of the Man Booker Prize
"Nothing since Cormac McCarthy's "The Road "has shaken me like this." --"The Washington Post
"
From the author of the acclaimed "Gould's Book of Fish, " a magisterial novel of love and war that traces the life of one man from World War II to the present.
August, 1943: Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. His life, in a brutal Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway, is a daily struggle to save the men under his command. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever.
A savagely beautiful novel about the many forms of good and evil, of truth and transcendence, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.
