"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).
