An aspiring young writer from Spain begins work as a teaching assistant on a Midwestern campus and finds himself sharing an office with Rodney Falk, a taciturn Vietnam veteran of strange ways and few friends. But when Rodney suddenly disappears the narrator becomes obsessed with discovering the secrets of his past. Why do people fear Rodney? What traumatic event happened at My Khe during the war? And, when the narrator's life takes a terrible twist, is Rodney the only person in the world who can save him?

`A deeply affecting novel. A reflection on war, friendship, success and failure ... Cercas's novel carries a powerful warning for the war-hungry modern world' -- Scotland on Sunday

`Cercas's writing has echoes of Scott Fitzgerald, in the intense, shining clarity of its emotion, and of Faulkner' -- Independent

`Presents his narrator's foibles in a lucid, supple prose, well-matched to the novel's darker elements' -- Financial Times

`This is an intelligent, morally scrupulous book ... a pleasure to read' -- Sunday Telegraph

`Written with intelligence and humour ... he is a major writer' -- Guardian 

From the bestselling author of Soldiers of Salamis, which is an international bestseller and winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2005.
