Night watch

Op voorraad
Tender and tragic, set against the turbulent backdrop of wartime Britain,
The Night Watch is the extraordinary story of four Londoners: Kay, who wanders the streets in mannish clothes, restless and searching…Helen, who harbours a troubling secret…Viv, glamour girl, recklessly loyal to her soldier lover…and Duncan, an apparent innocent, struggling with demons of his own.
Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked-out streets, illicit liaisons and sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, this is an astonishing novel.
‘A truthful, lovely book that needs no conjuring tricks to make you want to read it again’ Philip Hensher, OBSERVER
