"This enthralling autobiographical fragment by Stuart Hood, a World War II British intelligence officer, tells of his escape from a prisoner-of-war camp in Parma and his life on the run with Italian partisans in the Resistance". (New York Times). "I wanted to do two things. Firstly, give a picture of peasant life. I felt indebted to my peasants who had sheltered me, and admiration for them. The other thing was to make sense of what had happened. I discovered new facts I hadn't understood at the time. This in itself raised the question of remembrance and how one shapes memory, its truth and gaps". (Stuart Hood, 2002). "Combines the mesmeric readability of good modern fiction with a feeling of lived experience to which few novels can attain". (Listener). "A remarkable, haunting book". (Raleigh Travelyan, Sunday Times).
