He has turned out to be the heroic soldier he imagined and his experience of battle principally involves fear and confusion. Back home, his mother Alice puts all her hopes in her son, and dreams of his return and starting a new life for them both. Richard Yates's novel is both tender and ironic as he follows Bobby's adventures and disasters and reflects on the intense but complicated bond between mother and son.

Yates's trademark blackness does not seem out of place or excessive... the skilful sketches of Prentice's colleagues bring an element of humanity to a sordid and inhumane topic -- Leyla Sanai * www.rocksbackpagesblogs.com * Every good writer I know acknowledges Yates as a master -- Kurt Vonnegut So quotidian, so possible, so plausible, that it is more terrifying to read...than to read of the disasters and massacres of kings * Harper's * Wonderful -- Andre Dubus A beautiful book -- Joan Didion
