"WHEN WE WERE ROMANS...[is] excellent and - I hope this doesn't diminish their worthiness in your eyes - extremely entertaining to boot....This is a wonderful novel, looniness included. Indeed, books like this suggest that in fiction today the payload is increasingly in the narrator more than the narrative: That's where the strange adventures are to be found."
From the Publisher
Editors Note When We Were Romans is a haunting psychological novel and another masterful work from the author of the prize-winning English Passengers.Nine-year-old Lawrence is the man of his family. He watches over his mother and his willful little sister Jemima. He is the one who keeps order, especially when his mother decides they must leave their life in England behind because of threats from Lawrence's father. But their new life in Rome does not go as planned. Short of money and living off of his mother's old friends-all who seem to doubt her story-Lawrence soon realizes that things are not what they seem.
