About the Author:

Paul Sayer was born and brought up in South Milford, near Leeds. He was a staff nurse in a large psychiatric hospital, before becoming a full-time writer. THE COMFORTS OF MADNESS, his first novel, won the Constable Trophy for fiction, the Whitbread first novel prize and the Whitbread Book of the Year award in 1988. His work has been translated into seven languages.

From Publishers Weekly:

"The war between the U.S. and Mexico, often passed over lightly as a sort of rehearsal for the American Civil War, is dealt with by Eisenhower as an event of major significance in our nation's history," said PW , judging this a "well-written, comprehensive history."
