Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Plagued by nightmarish memories of the trenches where he saw his brother die, Nick's grandfather Gordie lays dying as Nick struggles to keep the peace in his increasingly fractious home. As Nick's suburban family loses control over their world, Nick begins to learn his grandfather's buried secrets and comes to understand the power of old wounds to leak into the present. As a study of the power of memory and loss, Another World conveys with extraordinary intensity the ways in which the violent past returns to haunt and distort the present.

Synopsis:

Nick's grandfather Geordie lies dying. As Nick watches, Geordie relives the horrors surrounding his brother's death. Meanwhile the children, who have been organized into decorating the living room, peel away the wallpaper to reveal an obscene portrait of an Edwardian family.

Synopsis:

A highly accomplished novel of family relationships, which also serves as a vivid and compelling study of memory and the various ways in which the violent past returns to haunt and distort the present. 30,000 copies sold in Viking hardcover. "Never less than compulsively readable." Margaret Forster. "Utterly compelling" Alan Massie. From the author of the "Regeneration Trilogy".
