About this product
- DescriptionA topical and accessible collection, The Sugar Mile takes its readers on a journey from wartime London to modern-day America. In a series of mologues, each beautifully drawn and intimate, Glyn Maxwell details the effects and experiences of conflict: the sense of community bounded by a distrust of strangers and foreigners; whole streets razed to the ground; homes lost, possessions misplaced and characters displaced; fears for loved-ones offset by tentative bargains with god; casual encounters given an intense, unreal edge by the context in which they occur; the routine drama and unfamiliar 'everydayness' of bombs, blackouts, shelters, temporary accommodation and evacuation...With painstaking clarity and honesty, Maxwell has captured the surrealism of a world under siege - whether WWII or the war on terror declared post 9/11.
- Author BiographyAn established and critically-acclaimed poet, novelist and playwright, Glyn Maxwell has previously won a Somerset Maugham award, received the E.M.Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and had three collections selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. He's also been shortlisted for the Whitbread, Forward and T.S. Eliot prizes.
