Sinopsis:

In After Dunkirk, a first novel of uncommon assurance and depth, Milena McGraw has created a portrait of a man coming to terms with himself and with life at the time of the Battle of Britain. It is not an experience soon forgotten.

From the Back Cover:

"After Dunkirk lures us into a dense rich mind, then makes us virtually become that mind as it encounters the bafflements, pleasures, and disasters of Britain--and a handful of Britons--in the Second World War. The long-gone reality is evoked so fully as, finally, to become our own."

(Reynolds Price)

"After Dunkirk is everything one hopes a book will be--powerful and beautiful in its construction, thoughtful in its intent, unforgettable in its effect. Milena McGraw's subject is war, the consequence of war--what it does to young men, old men, and women, its insidious as well as its overt wounding, its inescapable blight. Luthie, leader of a squadron of young men--boys, really--who daily fly their Spitfires into the English skies, says, helplessly, "I am a just man in a just war." It matters not at all that Luthie is also young, able, valiant, and well trained, or that he has met a woman and fallen in love and--like any ordinary man--dreams of reaching the farthest and best possibilities of their life together. With prose that is at times almost unbearably lyrical, that is dismal with grief and splendid with perseverance, she draws us into this book as into another living body. Luthie and his story are, simply, unforgettable."

(Mary Oliver)

"A great mysterium of literature." (Josef Skvorecky )
