About This Item

Synopsis

A Month in the Country is the fourth novel by J. L. Carr, first published in 1980 and nominated for the Booker Prize. The book won the Guardian Fiction Prize in 1980.

At the same time another veteran is employed to look for a grave beyond the churchyard walls. There is prevalent religious symbolism throughout the book, mainly dealing with judgment.
