Summary
From London's Soho underworld to the battlegrounds of North Africa, an odyssey following the exploits of an enigmatic camouflage officer--and brilliant painter--during World War II
Summary
This is the story of Kenneth Brill, a naive boy and equally naive young man, growing up on a farm outside London. Kenneth is an unremarkable schoolboy but he had one remarkable talent, his ability to draw. Through this he is thrown into Bohemian 30s London. This talent also leads him to become part of the allied camouflage group in North Africa, tricking the Germans through elaborate concealment. Alongside this he is introduced to sex (via life drawing classes in Soho brothels) and his own fumblings with his future wife April.
