THE FARTHER SHORE
“The moral and logical chaos of that experience—in all its terrifying specificity—is what will resonate, echoing...with terrible clarity.”
—New York Sun
When a small unit of solders is separated from their command and left to fend for themselves in a hostile city, their only option is to keep moving. As they wander, encountering haunting characters in a series of surreal episodes along the way, the line between friend and enemy is blurred beyond recognition, and with it the sanity of those who survive.
Acclaimed as the first great war novel of its age, THE FARTHER SHORE is at once ghostly and lyrical, terrifying and tender, gritty yet profoundly illuminating.
