Description
From a Man Booker Prize nominee comes this "extraordinarily poignant" novel of growing up in post-WWII England from the author of The Soldier's Return (The Sunday Telegraph).

Set in the 1950s, this absorbing novel follows young Joe Richardson, the son of a British World War II veteran, as he makes his way to Oxford and embarks upon life in midcentury England. A story not only of one family but of the profound changes taking place at the time—in morals, religion, music, and social class—Crossing the Lines has become a contemporary classic.

Following The Soldier's Return, heralded as "a novel written in fine steel sentences and granite paragraphs" by the Washington Post, and the equally brilliant A Son of War, Melvyn Bragg continues "one of the finest sagas of postwar Britain" (The Sunday Telegraph).

"A compassionate, clear-sighted writer. Bragg's work has been compared to that of Hardy and D.H. Lawrence, not without some justice." —Publishers Weekly
