Synopsis

Martin Boyd was one of the generation whose lives were forever changed by the futility and barbarism of the Western Front. His writing style was forged out of the despair of his wartime experience and the contrasting civility and urbanity of his life. Brenda Niall, award-winning biographer of The Boyds, uncovers Martin's complex personality - witty, generous, sociable, yet deeply reserved - and takes you on his literary and personal journey to find his 'home of the spirit'.
