Book Overview

A harrowing and beautiful novel, demonstrating -- again -- that Patricia Anthony is one of our great writers. -- Publishers Weekly

In this gritty look at World War I's trench warfare, a young American sharpshooter ventures into no man's land each night to be ready by daybreak for the grim business of slaying record numbers of enemies. But Travis Lee Stanhope, a Texan serving with an English unit, is haunted by ghosts of the men he's killed as well as those of his fallen comrades. As he hovers on the brink of a transcendent experience, Travis gradually realizes that although he is surrounded by death, his true mission is related to life.
A New York Times and American Library Association Notable Book, this tale was acclaimed by Booklist as a haunting, sometimes almost hallucinatory, yet surprising war novel and by Kirkus Reviews as mesmerizing . highly textured and brimming with insight.

Flanders ranks close to All Quiet on the Western Front in its impact. -- San Francisco Chronicle

Anthony's subtle and innovative storytelling reaches a new plane in her latest novel, a foray into magical realism that contrasts the waking hell of war with the fragile peace of eternity. -- Library Journal
