1918, the closing months of the war. Army psychiatrist William Rivers is concerned for the men who have been in his care - particularly Billy Prior, who is about to return to combat in France with young poet Wilfred Owen. This book offers an account of the devastating final months of the First World War.
Shortlisted for Best of the Booker 2008.
An extraordinary tour de force. I'm convinced that the trilogy will win recognition as one of the few real masterpieces of late 20th-century British fiction Jonathan Coe
