Some brief overview of book

Rich in character and incident, An Ice-Cream War fulfills the ambition of the historical novel at its best. The New York Times Book Review Booker Prize Finalist Boyd has more than fulfilled the bright promise of his first novel. .

. . He is capable not only of some very funny satire but also of seriousness and compassion.

Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times 1914. In a hotel room in German East Africa, American farmer Walter Smith dreams of Theodore Roosevelt. As he sleeps, a railway passenger swats at flies, regretting her decision to return to the Dark Continentand to her husband.

On a faraway English riverbank, a jealous Felix Cobb watches his brother swim, and curses his sister-in-law-to-be. And in the background of the worlds daily chatter rumors of an Anglo-German conflict, the likes of which no one has ever seen. In An Ice-Cream War, William Boyd brilliantly evokes the private dramas of a generation upswept by the winds of war.

After his German neighbor burns his cropswith an apology and a smileWalter Smith takes up arms on behalf of Great Britain. And when Felixs brother marches off to defend British East Africa, he pursues, against his better judgment, a forbidden love affair. As the sons of the world match wits and weapons on a continent thousands of miles from home, desperation makes bedfellows of enemies and traitors of friends and family.

By turns comic and quietly wise, An Ice-Cream War deftly renders lives capsized by violence, chance, and the irrepressible human capacity for love. Funny, assured, and cleanly, expansively told, a seriocomic romp. Boyd gives us studies of people caught in the side pockets of calamity and dramatizes their plights with humor, detail and grit.

Harpers Boyd has crafted a quiet, seamless prose in which story and characters flow effortlessly out of a fertile imagination. . .

. The reader emerges deeply moved. Newsday
