9780001050525: Empire of the Sun

A novel of war, of starvation and survival, of internment camps and death marches, which blends honesty with a vision of a world thrown utterly out of joint. It is rooted in the author's own experience of war in our time. The novel won "The Guardian" Fiction Prize.
