December 2014: The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
In December we'll be discussing the 2014 Man Booker Prize winner, Richard Flanagan's The Narrow Road to the Deep North. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Burma Death Railway, surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle’s young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever.
Hailed as a masterpiece, Richard Flanagan’s epic novel tells the unforgettable story of one man’s reckoning with the truth.
