I first read this in the 1990s but in the library I found that I had forgotten the whole thing. I wrote a paper for it in class, but I'd forgotten the whole thing. So I picked it back up thinking I'd probably put it down quickly. Not so. Loved it. Fantastic. Amazing. It follows up her biographical novel about Siegfried Sassoon and the other WWI poets. Now we're looking into assassinations, lost hopes, people being arrested for being conscientious objectors or homosexuals. You have to read this and Regeneration, which I also had forgotten completely and also loved immensely on the second read. It must have had something to do with the amount of reading I did in grad school, not the books themselves.
