Kate Atkinson

Transworld Publishers

This historical novel about Bomber Command’s war is also a moving meditation about life and death, about time and ageing and about the novelist’s art itself. Written by Edinburgh-based writer Kate Atkinson, a past winner of the Saltire Society Scottish Book of the Year award in 2005 who also won the 1995 Whitbread (now Costa) Book of the Year award for her debut novel Behind the Scenes at the Museum.
