Shirley Hazzard “The Great Fire”

This was my first novel by Shirley Hazzard and this book has an excellent reputation, it won the National Book Award. The main characters are good, decent people: Leith is a wounded English war hero who has come to Japan to study the effects of the bombing of Hiroshima. Peter Exley, friend of Leigh, risks everything to save a dying child of another race. “The Great Fire” is an extraordinary love story, filled with beautiful, descriptive prose. I enjoyed every word.
I recommend this book to anyone who truly loves both great fiction and the English language.
