    Originally published in Great Britain by Arcadia Books in 2002.
    "Based on Tatamkhulu Afrika's own capture in North Africa and his experiences as a prisoner of war during Worl War II in Italy and Germany. This frank novel deals with three men who must negotiate the emotions that are brought to the surface by the physical closeness of survival in the male-only camps. The complex rituals of camp life and the strange loyalties and deep bonds among the men are heartbreakingly depicted."--Jacket flap.
