WINNER OF THE WATERSTONES NOVEL OF THE YEAR PRIZE 2023It was only because Gaunt knew he might die, that he could be so reckless as to kiss him. 'Assured, affecting and moving. Alice Winn has written a devastating love story between two young men on the Western Front' MAGGIE O'FARRELL, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF HAMNET______________________In 1914, war feels far away to Henry Gaunt and Sidney Ellwood.

They're too young to enlist, and anyway, Gaunt is fighting his own private battle - an all-consuming infatuation with the dreamy, poetic Ellwood - not having a clue that his best friend is in love with him, always has been. When Gaunt's mother asks him to enlist in the British army to protect the family from anti-German attacks, he signs up immediately, relieved to escape his overwhelming feelings. But Ellwood and their classmates soon follow him into the horrors of trenches.

Though Ellwood and Gaunt find fleeting moments of solace in one another, their friends are dying in front of them, and at any moment they could be next. An epic tale of the devastating tragedies of war and the forbidden romance that blooms in its grip, In Memoriam is a breathtaking debut. THE TOP FIVE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, March 2023______________________'One of the best debuts I've read in recent years: immersive, rousing, tender and devastating .
