War Child is an extraordinarily sensitive novel, the story of James Esslin who is part of everything but apart from everyone. At once the story of every adult's lost childhood and a superb portrait of character in formation - and disintegration - War Child is told in a way that makes a lost colonial world vividly real.

On a brisk autumn day, a thirteen-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: his father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change.
