A Matter of Time By Alex Capus
Book/Novel Author: Alex Capus
Book/Novel Title: A Matter of Time
Summary & Review
A little known backwater of the history of the Great War is vividly rendered by a great story-teller – the central characters and events of this book are based on fact, but their surroundings and experiences are richly drawn from the author’s imagination and detailed research. **
‘A war-torn farce worth waiting for’ The Independent 20091123 ‘Now Alex Capus has added another layer to this strange episode in a sideshow of the first world war, with a wonderful fictionalised account of what the Germans did while Spicer pranced about in his skirt.’ — Giles Foden The Spectator 20091214
