Journeys in the Dead Season
Details: ISBN: 0330441221 , Pan Macmillan , 2005 . Book Condition: As New. Multiple copies available this title. Remainder mark. A prisoner is on remand in Durham high security jail for what turns out to be a series of attacks on young girls across Leicestershire, culminating in abduction, rape and murder. In the autumn of 1922, Captain Crowe is on a journey across Leicestershire. He intends to visit his old comrades from the War and finish his book on horticulture. The prisoner is reading a copy of Crowe's book, Perambulations of a Soldier: Autumn to Winter. Crowe's retelling of his odyssey in his letters, their subsequent appearance within Perambulations and the prisoner's interpretation of them, creates a macabre fusion of past and present, where fact and fiction, truth and reality begin to merge and coalesce. Juxtaposing the experiences of a shellshock victim in the early 1920s with the recollections of an alleged child-murderer in the present day, Journeys in the Dead Season is a masterpiece of psychological complexity and subtlety. In the vein of writers such as Kazuo Ishiguro and Beryl Bainbridge, this is a novel that plays with voice, place and time to create an enthralling narrative that is both metaphysically haunting and deeply compelling. 'Journeys in the Dead Season' was a worthy finalist in the 2005 Richard & Judy Writing Competition. Quantity Available: 13. Category: Literature & Literary; ISBN: 0330441221. ISBN/EAN: 9780330441223. Inventory No: 09010008.
