About the Author

Reviews

"What a great book. What a great man" -- Harry Ritchie * Daily Mail *
"Forget the grueling films, just read the brilliant books" * Independent *
"This beautiful, awkward book tells the story of a fine and awkward man. Here, I think, is an account that rises above mere timeliness and comes near to being a classic of autobiography" -- Ian Jack * Guardian *
"When I turned to the book, the complexity of Lomax's emotions came alive and burned off the page" * Independent *
"Of all the billions of words that have been written about the Second World War, with the exception of Churchill's Nobel Prize winning history, it is not an exaggeration to say there is no account of it more worth reading that this. Wistfully romantic, historically important, startling, horrifying and ultimately electrifyingly uplifting, The Railway Man is as indispensable as any book can be." -- Tom Peck * Independent *
