The Narrow Road to the Deep North
By Richard Flanagan
“ An epic account of the horrors of the Thai-Burma railway ”
Very worthwhile reading. Set mainly in Australia and Thailand during World War Two. An epic account of the horrors of the Thai-Burma railway that delves deeply into the enormous physical and psychological demands on the central characters. A story concerning love, duty and deception. Worth delaying reading interviews with the author until you finish the book.
