The memory of war will stay with a man longer than anything else. Dawn, mist clearing over rice fields, a burning Vietnamese village, and a young photographer takes the shot that might make his career. The image, of a staring soldier in the midst of mayhem, will become one of the great photographs of the war. But what Jonathan has seen in that village is more than he can bear... He flees to Japan, to lose himself in the vastness of Tokyo, and to take different kinds of pictures: of streets and crowds and cherry blossom - and of a girl with whom he is no longer lost. Yet even here his history will catch up with him: that photograph and his responsibility in taking it; his responsibility as a witness to war, and to other events buried deep in his past.

La nostra recensione

Georgina Harding's novel is the finely tuned work of a writer exceptionally at ease with her craft and a testament to the power and poetry of clean and disciplined prose -- Sadie Jones * Guardian * Quietly and restrainedly, The Gun Room is a book that provokes searching questions * Daily Mail * Graceful and considered ... The dreamlike quality is heightened by Harding's sharply observed prose ... As befits a writer adept at carefully cropped scenes, Harding has the measure of photography. The novel plays with its ability to captivate, shock, inform and misdirect * Sunday Telegraph * In delicate, hypnotic prose, Harding describes the devastating effects of war and the trauma of bearing witness * Sunday Express * A moving story * Elle Summer Reading * Harding has the descriptive skills to do her subject justice ... Elegant * Mail on Sunday * Her writing is so gentle and beautiful and takes you so confidently on a journey. I let myself be carried away -- Esther Freud
