It explores the echoes of human conflict in a series of powerful stories inspired by life with the authors own father, who fought and was decorated in WWII, but suffered the after-effects for the rest of his life. Conflict is often explored from the childs perspective and ranges from conventional warfare to historical religious persecution. War veterans are haunted by events that echo louder and louder, and eventually break them. A prisoner sees the violent execution of a friend and mentor, a boy hides from a necklacing, a young student escapes the fighting in Iraq in the hope of continuing his education in the West and a woman tells what she knows of her parents torture.The people in these stories are not those who go down in history, but ordinary troops, the powerless, caught up involuntarily.

All are tested, sometimes to breaking point, in this extraordinary collection as Gebbie explores the surreality of conflict and the after-effects of atrocity.
