In Goodbye Mickey Mouse Len Deighton has written his best novel yet: a brilliant, multi-dimensional picture of what it is to be at war... and what it was to be in love in the England of 1944.
Goodbye Mickey Mouse is Deighton?s fourteenth novel and a vivid evocation of wartime England, the story of a group of American fighter pilots flying escort missions over Germany in the winter of 1943-4.
At the centre of the novel are two young men: the deeply reserved Captain Jamie Farebrother, estranged son of a deskbound colonel, and the cocky Lieutenant Mickey Morse, well on his way to becoming America?s Number One Flying Ace. Alike only in their courage, they forge a bond of friendship in battle with far-reaching consequences for themselves, and for the future of those they love.
From the Publisher: 'The sheer charge of the writing swept me into another world' - H R F Keating, The Times
'It is a novel of memory, satisfying on every imaginable level, but truly astonishing In Its recreation of a time and place through minute detail. Deighton has written well of the air before, nonfictionally, and he informs us in an afterword that it took six years of research to do this novel. It shows. The only way you could know more about flying a P-51 Mustang, after reading this book, is to have flown one' - WASHINGTON POST
'He writes, as usual, with authority and a superb sense of period' - DAILY TELEGRAPH
