Martin Boyd is an Anglo-Australian born in Switzerland, he is one of only a few writers to capture the ambivalence of belonging in neither homeland yet intensely fond of both. This book is #4 in The Langton Quartet series, but can be read as a stand-alone. His novels all feature the upper-class world of British privilege and its Australian offshoots, seen through the lives of the Langton family, loosely based on Boyd’s own remarkable family.

At the outbreak of WWI, Dominic Langton leaves his wife on a remote sheep farm to enlist in the British Army. The trenches change him forever. On his return he casts off his past and discovers his integrity. This is a fairly standard story, livened up only by Dominic's odd position as an Australian serving for the British. Australia famously became a nation at Gallipoli, and this novel is a bit of a symbolic version of that fixation. But it lacks the romance of earlier books (sex, yes; romance, less so), and the cleverness (the narrator is entirely effaced here), and the wit.
