***WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014*** Forever after, there were for them only two sorts of men: the men who were on the Line, and the rest of humanity, who were not. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Burma Death Railway, surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever. Hailed as a masterpiece, Richard Flanagan's epic novel tells the unforgettable story of one man's reckoning with the truth.
A savagely beautiful novel about the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost

"Some years, very good books win the Man Booker Prize but this year a masterpiece has won it" * A.C. Grayling, Chair of Judges, Man Booker Prize 2014 * "A novel of extraordinary power, deftly told and hugely affecting. A classic in the making... Masterful" * Observer * "Devastatingly beautiful" * Sunday Times * "Utterly convincing... A grand examination of what it is to be a good man and a bad man in the one flesh, and, above all, of how it is to live after survival... To say Flanagan creates a rich tapestry is to overly praise tapestries" -- Thomas Keneally * Guardian * "Elegantly wrought, measured and without an ounce of melodrama, Flanagan's novel is nothing short of a masterpiece" * Financial Times *
