Sold Out Neal Ascherson

War and Divided Loyalties

He’s one of Scotland’s best-respected journalists and usually appears at the Book Festival to discuss his non-fiction work, but now Neal Ascherson returns with a debut novel The Death of the Fronsac. Based around the true story of a French destroyer that blew up in the Firth of Clyde in 1940, this is a powerful, evocative story about betrayal and exile – and the tragic fate of Poland in the 20th century.

Vote for The Death of the Fronsac by Neal Ascherson in the First Book Award.
