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:

Plagued by nightmarish memories of the trenches where he saw his brother killed, Geordie lies dying as his grandson Nick struggles to keep the peace in his increasingly fractious home. As Nick's sub-urban 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.

Synopsis:

Suppose time can slow down. Suppose it's not an ever-rolling stream, but something altogether more viscous and unpredictable, like blood. Suppose it coagulates around terrible events, clots them over, stops the flow . . .

During the hazy Newcastle summer, Nick's grandfather Geordie lies dying. A proud and resilient man, he has long outlived his peers but not the memories of his youth during World War I. As Nick watches, Geordie starts to relive the horrors that surrounded his brother's death in the painful days before his own.
