Publisher 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.

The narrow road to the deep nothh

Great book! Complex view of the misery of war, loss and love. Beautifully written

The Adams Man ,

Wow

Just a terrifically well written book, and a story that is both tragic, full of happiness, and very true to life. The authors level of detail into the emotions and behaviors of each character sets him apart from the best of writers. A masterpiece, no doubt.

The Narrow Road to the Deep North

Not sure how to describe this book. It is extraordinary and the most moving book I have ever read. It had me I tears. Thank you. I wish I could say more but I am at loss for words.
