The Back of the Book

His masterly account of a cruel flight from invasion.

Paterson, manager of a small rice-mill, organizes the evacuation of a small English community when Japanese forces invade Burma.

Paterson takes with him his Burmese mistress and her young brother. The rest of the party take along their prejudices, their pettiness and their squabbles, and a small enclave of English insularity moves north through Burma.

Swiftly and inevitably the journey becomes a tragic working out of tension and insoluble conflict.


Offered as BookRing.

Received today.
Bookrings are a bit like buses; you wait forages and then three arrive all at once.
This is the third, but it shouldn't take me too long to get to.

I've only read one other novel by HE Bates before this (Fair Stood The Winds For France) and as I enjoyed that so much I thought I would give this a try. A slow start (I thought) but then moved on a pace. A very simple story, well-told. Very good.

Posted to azuki.

The storyteller is quite accomplished in describing the range of emotions and thoughts haboured by each character. Though it tells of an event that spans only a few days, it provided an excellent snapshot of what the country and period was like.
Unfortunately the book got a bit damaged when I had it in my backpack while I was cycling to a park and got rained on. However, it miraculously dried out to be fine with no wrinkled pages. I will mail it back to Laura soon. Thanks for sharing the book.
