Less of a novel and more of a poetic elegy, both for a friend lost in battle and for the sense of self lost after having lived. Power's prose is lyrical, evoking lush descriptions of a stark landscape, philosophically musing on time and memory, and probing for an answer to the question of what makes young men make the decision to have someone else decide their lives for them.
