Short novel set in PARIS / FRANCE
Follow Me Home
Set in Helmand during the current conflict, Bishop’s novel is a compelling variant on the theme of soldiers trapped in enemy territory and striving to get home. the narrator is a British officer involved in the ambush of a Taliban leader that goes horribly wrong. Several soldiers are killed, contact with base is lost and the survivors must cross miles of hostile terrain to reach safet. The pared-down simplicity of Bishop’s narrative is made even more effective by details conjured from his own experience as a foreign reporter in war zones.
