Synopsis

A critically acclaimed, Booker long-listed novel that is reminiscent of Pat Barker's `Regeneration Trilogy'.

Clarice Pike and Vic Warren are from completely different backgrounds. An impossible affair has already driven them thousands of miles apart. 1939 finds Clarice in Malaya where her father is an obscure company doctor, and Vic in East London, an unemployed shipwright badly married to Phylis, Clarice's cousin. As their feelings conspire to draw the lovers back together, the world erupts with a terrible violence. It is the relentlessness of male brutality that forces Vic to grope towards what real manhood might be.

`If the Invader Comes' combines themes from Derek Beaven's previously acclaimed `Newton's Niece' and `Acts of Mutiny' to portray a wartime England where human relationships are threatened as much from within the family as from occupied Europe. Exciting, moving and ultimately optimistic, Derek Beaven's new novel represents a daring leap in British fiction.
