Synopsis

Alfred Day wanted his war. In its turmoil he found his proper purpose as the tail-gunner in a Lancaster bomber; he found the wild, dark fellowship of his crew, and - most extraordinary of all - he found Joyce, a woman to love.

But that's all gone now - the war took it away. Maybe it took him, too.

Now in 1949, employed as an extra in a war film that echoes his real experience, Day begins to recall what he would rather forget . . .

External Reviews

"Kennedy has taken a rather experimental approach with both the structure and narrative voice in this novel. Essentially and exercise in an exploration of what trauma does to someone, it's a brave task and (for mine), a successful one." - Goodreads Review.
