A Broken World
Available in Stock
The novel Birdsong (1993) conjures the horrors of the First World War, and examines the psychological impact it had on people's lives. Its author Sebastian Faulks returns to the theme with this non-fiction collection of first-hand accounts considering the experiences of combatants, their families and other civilians away from the fighting. The book also explores the sense of dislocation, division and displacement caused by the conflict, and the feelings of absence and loss experienced in its aftermath.
