Double Feature: Two, Paperback / softback Book

Double Feature: Two Paperback / softback


In Prasanna Puwanarajah's Nightwatchman, a British Sri Lankan cricketer prepares for the innings of her life for England against Sri Lanka at Lord's.

Facing a relentless bowling machine she challenges our preconceptions of politics, sport and national pride as harshly as she challenges her own. Tom Basden's There is a War is a miniature epic that explores the mad savagery of war with biting black comedy, and takes us into the dark heart of a strange and surreal conflict.

As soldiers, priests and scavengers roam a battle-scorched landscape, a young medical officer finds herself abandoned and useless, unable to locate the hospital or even the war she was promised.
