SLAVES OF SOLITUDE is one of the great novels of World War II. The modest Miss Roach finds herself trapped in box within box of horrors: a grotesque boarding-house and its despairing inhabitants, in a hellish, rationed, blacked-out town, in a War which has consumed everything and is set to last forever. Into this suffocating world step some American soldiers - do they offer the chance of freedom and escape or are they simply new Furies sent to torment the unfortunate Miss Roach?
