Item Details

From a village in Nova Scotia to the trenches of France, P. S. Duffy's astonishing debut showcases a rare talent emerging in midlife.When his beloved brother-in-law goes missing at the front in 1916, Angus defies his pacifist upbringing to join the war and find him. Assured a position as a cartographer in London, he is instead sent directly into battle. Meanwhile, at home, his son Simon Peter must navigate escalating hostility in a town torn by grief. Selected as both a Barnes & Noble Discover pick and one of the American Bookseller Association's Debut Dozen, The Cartographer of No Man's Land offers a soulful portrayal of World War I and the lives that were forever changed by it, both on the battlefield and at home.

As the 100th anniversary of this terrible war is observed, this book is worth reading as the author beautifully explores the circles of hell opened up by war, both on the battlefield and the homefront.

When his beloved brother-in-law Ebben goes missing in the “Great War”, Angus MacGrath puts aside his pacifist upbringing in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia and joins the army to search for him. Instead of becoming a cartographer working from London, Angus is thrust into the trenches in France. Back home, those who are left waiting are subjected to tension and hostility. As the 100th anniversary of this terrible war is observed, this book is worth reading as the author beautifully explores the circles of hell opened up by war, both on the battlefield and at home.
