The Letter Bearer by Robert Allison

The Letter Bearer jacketGranta

The Rider has no memory of who he is, or how he came to be lying – dying – in the brutal heat of the North African desert. Rescued by a band of deserters, the Rider begins to piece together his identity, based on shards of recollection and the letters in his post bag. The Letter Bearer examines issues of trauma, warfare and desertion in World War II.
