9780007458042: Franky Furbo

A welcome reissue of this wartime classic from the author of Birdy. During WW II, a dying American soldier, William Wiley, and his German captor, Wilhelm Klug, are miraculously rescued by a fox endowed with extraordinary powers, Franky Furbo. For William, the experience is indisputably true but when he discovers later that neither his wife nor children believe in Franky, he endures a crisis of faith and searches desperately for the truth. Franky Furbo is a modern fable with a remarkable twist, quite unlike anything Wharton wrote before or since.

About the Author:

William Wharton was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1925. During the Second World War, Wharton served in the US army, until an injury led to his discharge. In 1978, Wharton's first novel, 'Birdy', was published to critical acclaim. Before his death in 2008, Wharton penned 8 further novels, and 3 memoirs. The most recent memoir, 'Shrapnel', was published for the first time in English in 2012.

Review:

'Will appeal to anyone who liked (and still does) Watership Down or C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia' - Patrick Gale
