The Invisible Land

 12.00

by Hubert Mingarelli

From the author of A Meal in Winter and Four Soldiers, a poignant story of war, trauma and its aftermath.

‘Mingarelli writes beautifully about companionship and compassion, his absorbing gentleness shot through with the cruelty and trauma haunting this exquisite novel
– Alison Moore

The Invisible Land

Dinslaken, Germany. July 1945. The war is over, and the allied forces are beginning to assess the damage. Among them, is a war photographer. As the rest of the press corp return home, he finds himself reluctant to leave and, in the company of the young and sensitive driver he has been assigned, he sets out to photograph ordinary German people in front of their homes. As the pair continue their journey, it becomes clear that the young driver has his own reasons for not wishing to return home.

Told with Mingarelli’s trademark restraint and elegance, this is a tense, tender story of the emotional and moral repercussions of violence.
