'The Narrow Road to the Deep North' by Richard Flanagan (Tasmania & Worcester 1984) has been long-listed for the 2014 Man Booker prize. It is an epic novel which describes the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Burma Death Railway. "Surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle’s young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever." (Chatto & Windus, July 2014).
