This moving novel by the acclaimed author of “The Transit of Venus” is set in East Asia in 1947-48 following the devastation of World War II. The title “The Great Fire” refers both to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan which brought the war to an end, but also to the passionate relationship that forms the story of this beautifully written story. The British hero, Aldred Leith, is in the military surveying the damage in Japan. He is able to transcend the postwar physical destruction and psychological trauma when he falls in love with the daughter of an Australian commander. “An extraordinary love story.” “One of the greatest writers working in England today.” “Brilliant and dazzling.” A National Book Award winner.
