The Kindness of Women

(1991)
(The second book in the Empire of the Sun series)
A novel by

 

"The book is full of mesmerising writing, classic examples of the Ballard style, paragraphs and pages that disturb and enthral... A force is operating in this astonishing book which is hard to resist."
William Boyd


In this sequel to "Empire of the Sun", the author places the traumatic events described in that novel within the context of a lifetime. Jim, the narrator, returns to England after the war, and trains as a medical student at Cambridge, and as an RAF pilot in Canada.
