This astonishingly powerful novel follows H on a spiritual quest for revelation and redemption, from his disastrous marriage to Iseult Gonne, the Irish Civil War and internment, to his life as a writer, poultry farmer, racehorse owner and bohemian in 1930s London, and his arrival in Hitler's Germany in 1940. Arrested after the war, the 'outsider' at last finds himself 'alone and free, passionately involved in my own living fiction.'.
