The brand new novel from award-winning author, Stephen Daisley.
The old people in the district would often say that Roy was not quite the same after he come back. There was a brother. A twin brother, Tony. Tony Mitchell, different boy but a good rugby player. Bit of a mental case, they said, but Roy would have none of it. He always stayed close to Tony when they were growing up. They both went off to fight, must have been 1940. Only the one come back, though.
Crete, they thought. We lost Tony over there.
From Stephen Daisley, winner of the Prime Minister’s Award for Traitor and the NZ Ockham Prize for Coming Rain, comes a new novel about brothers at war. Beautifully written, brutal, tender and visceral, A Better Place is about love in its many forms.
