DetailsOnce you've seen that explosive violence - that pink mist - how can you go back again? Lyrical and devastating, this award-winning verse drama is about three young soldiers from Bristol who are deployed to Afghanistan. Pulling no punches, it weaves their experiences together, setting war-torn trauma against the backdrop of their everyday lives and examines both the physical and psychological fractures they bring home. Drawn from interviews with soldiers and their families, this intensely emotional and poetic work won Wales Book of the Year and the Roland Mathias prize. It captures the realities of modern warfare with piercing insight and aching power.
