    Highways to a War
    Highways to a War
    The brilliant companion volume to OUT OF IRELAND. Winner of the 1996 Miles Franklin Award. When Mike Langford, a war photographer with a reputation for unusual risk - taking, disappears inside Cambodia, he becomes a mythic figure in the minds of his friends. The search for him which is at the heart of this novel explores the personal highways that led him to war, and to his ultimate fate. 'A quite outstanding novel about the Indochina war, the best I have read since Graham Greene's THE QUIET AMERICAN.' LITERARY REVIEW 'A subtle unfolding of character and history camouflaged in battle - dress ... an absorbing portrait of lives lived at the edges of terror and beauty. Koch is a powerful writer and this is a fine book' - THE TIMES ' A gripping tale, a convincing, page turning evocation of recent history, full of compelling characters, tumultuous events and just plain excitement' - THE NEW YORK TIMES 'Magnificent ... in its humanity and honesty, and the maturity of its storytelling, it belongs with the finest products of that sad and wasteful history' - THE SPECTATOR
