Pat Barker - The Ghost Road

 

SYNOPSIS

Crude copies of Tenniel's drawings from Alice in Wonderland decorated one end of Ward Seven, for in peacetime this had been a children's hospital. Alice, tiny enough to swim in a sea of her own tears; Alice, unfolding like a telescope till she was nine feet tall; Alice, grown so large her arm protruded from the window; and, most strikingly, Alice with the serpent's neck, undulating above the trees. Behind Rivers, a creaking trolley passed from bed to bed: the patients' breakfast dishes were being cleared away. 'Come on, Captain McBride, drink up,' Sister Roberts said, crackling past. 'We've not got all day, you know.' This was said loudly, for his benefit. He'd arrived on the ward too early, before they were ready for him. 'You knew him, didn't you?' Elliot Smith said, coming up to him, looking over his shoulder.
