The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan


Tuesday, July 25 at 7:30


Winner of the Man Booker Prize

“Nothing since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road has shaken me like this.” —The Washington Post

In The Narrow Road to the Deep North, Richard Flanagan displays the gifts that have made him one of the most acclaimed writers of contemporary fiction. Moving deftly from a Japanese POW camp to present-day Australia, from the experiences of Dorrigo Evans and his fellow prisoners to that of the Japanese guards, this savagely beautiful novel tells a story of the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.
