Summary: Gilbert Joseph is one of several thousand Jamaican RAF pilots who fought for the mother country during WW2. Upon returning to civilian life in England finds himself treated very differently. This book may have won the Orange and Whitbread prizes and countless press plaudits, but it drew a very mixed response from us.
