Back (British Literature Series) by Henry Green

One-legged Charley Summers is finally home from the war, after severalyears in a German prison camp, only to find he must now deal with thedeath of his lover Rose. A shell-shocked romantic?slow, distant, anddreamy?he begins to have trouble telling Roses half-sister Nancy apartfrom Rose herself, now buried in the village churchyard. Coping andfailing to cope with the quiet realities of daily life, Charleysdelusions elevate his timid courtship of a practical and unremarkableyoung woman into an amnesiac love story both comic and disturbing. Acontemporary of Anthony Powell and Evelyn Waugh, Henry Green was one ofthe greatest English novelists of the twentieth century, and Back is his most haunting and personal work.
