Scenes from Early Life

by Philip Hensher
£8.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (Fourth Estate) (2013)

Scenes from Early Life by Philip Hensher Winner of the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize, this is the new novel from the author of King of the Badgers and the Man Booker-shortlisted The Northern Clemency.
 
“I was a baby during the war. We stayed inside for months. All my aunts took turns in feeding me. I couldn't be heard to cry. You see, there were soldiers in the streets. They would have known what a crying baby meant. So I had to be kept silent. No, not everyone came out of the war alive.”
 
One family’s life, and a nation – Bangladesh – are uniquely created through conversation, sacrifice, songs, bonds, blood, bravery and jokes. Narrated by a young boy born into a savage civil war, Scenes from Early Life is a heartbreaking, funny and gripping novel by one of our finest writers.
