Ex-soldier, poet and composer Ivor Gurney, suffering from increasingly frequent and deepening bouts of paranoid schizophrenia, is transferred to the City of London Mental Hospital, Dartford. Neglected by the military and by his own family, Gurney begins a descent into the madness and oblivion which he believes has long been waiting to claim him.

"For more than 20 years now, Robert Edric's inflinching eye for human cruelty has roamed across centuries and continents" (Sunday Times Culture Magazine)

"Subtle, absorbing novel of poetry, madness and post-war trauma" (Sunday Times)
