Synopsis: Maggie Helwig's stunning British debut is that rare kind of war novel, a gripping, poignant, thoughtful, subtly imagined story about the ripples that carry on long after the fighting is over, and about two people kept apart by history, ethics and human frailty. Moral, personal and social boundaries are transgressed, with tragic results - as a simultaneous interpreter at the war crimes tribunal gets too close to a journalist who reports from former Yugoslavia. Daniel is a war correspondent in Bosnia, a stringer and a loner, a truthteller up to a point, careless with everything except his sources...('all right as long as I stay in a war zone'). Lili is based in Paris, of Serbian-Albanian origin, careful, blonde, meticulous, but when she finds herself working for the war crimes tribunal in The Hague, fails to declare a fragile relationship. Helwig unpeels the human cost of a terrible war, from Bosnia to Lambeth via Belgrade, Paris and The Hague. As the novel opens, Daniel watches a dawn raid on the house of a suspected war criminal - a good father almost certainly responsible for thousands of deaths. And the story ends with an apocalyptic millennium eve.

About the Author: Maggie Helwig was born in Liverpool and grew up partly in London and partly in Kingston, Ontario, and now lives in Toronto. She has published 6 books of poetry, short fiction and one novel. She has worked as a music journalist, and a human rights advocate, and has travelled in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia; Thailand; Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, as well as in various European countries. This is her first novel to appear outside Canada.

On a visit to Paris he meets Lili, a Serbian-Albanian interpreter at The Hague, entrusted with hearing and telling the stories of victims and perpetrators of brutality. Their lives intersect at the trial of a man accused of war crimes, interviews with whom have formed the bedrock of Daniel?s career.Peripatetic, driven people, Lili and Daniel are also both damaged by the horrific things they have witnessed.

Exquisitely written and vividly imagined, it explores issues of the greatest human importance within an intensely intimate landscape.He paused in the doorway of the hotel, automatically charting the safest route. There was a little bar across the street that would probably make him an omelette in mid-afternoon, and he found himself calculating that there was not much exposed ground to cross, then forcing himself to remember that this was Paris, that there were no snipers in the neighbouring buildings, not for now at any rate. -- from Between Mountains.
