About the Author:

NEVIL SHUTE NORWAY was born on January 17, 1899 in Ealing, London. After attending the Dragon School and Shrewsbury School, he studied Engineering Science at Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as an aeronautical engineer and published his first novel, Marazan, in 1926. In 1931 he married Frances Mary Heaton and they went on to have two daughters. During the Second World War he joined the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve where he worked on developing secret weapons. After the war he continued to write and settled in Australia where he lived until his death on January 12, 1960. His most celebrated novels include Pied Piper (1942), No Highway (1948), A Town Like Alice (1950) and On the Beach (1957).

Review:

 · "A magnificent thrill... every member of the little ship's company is worth meeting. A book that should not be missed." --Daily Telegraph

 · "No other writer has brought to fiction of this type quite the same lively sympathy and warmth of imagination or left so engaging an impression of truthfulness... Mr Shute always has good things to offer... the power to convey the springs of heroic conduct in the lightest and least assuming of tones." --Times Literary Supplement

 · "Based around a group aboard a converted trawler in 1942, this is a grand tale of sacrifice and courage and superbly structured." --Gerald Seymour, Express
