Notes

Description
"The year is 1944, and Harry Black, a London firefighter battling the blazes caused by constant bombing, awakes in the hospital to learn that his soldier brother, Ellis, has been killed. In the delirium of his wounded state, Harry's mind blurs the distinctions between the reality of war-torn London and the myth of Orpheus. Driven by visions of Ellis and a sense of poetic inevitability, Harry sets off on a journey that will lead him deep beneath the city. With otherworldly paintings by Alexis Deacon depicting Harry's surreal descent, this haunting blend of prose, verse, and illustration delves into love, loyalty, and the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood. Authors and brothers Marcus and Julian Sedgwick have written a war novel unlike any other, at once a timeless story of the beauty and tenacity of life and a fierce indictment of modern, mechanized, dehumanized warfare."--Inside cover.
