Quatrième de couverture:
Kip Calder and Brice McCarthy were born on the same day in 1944 in Los Alamos during the secret years of the Manhattan Project and the first nuclear tests. As young boys, growing up in this closed community, they became the best of friends but were to follow different paths as they grew into manhood: Brice to become an anti-Vietnam activist; Kip to fight in Nixon's covert war in Laos. When Kip goes missing, presumed dead, Brice marries Jessica, the woman they both loved. Then, twenty-five years later, Kip returns, a ghost soldier, back to reclaim what was once his?
'Morrow is vivid on nostalgia for New Mexico and deluded, inarticulate characters and their Sixties student life in New York. Landscapes, skies, flowers, Spanish words ornament the prose. The characters are real, the emotions living, the story very engaging.'
PHILIP MACCANN, 'Guardian'
'Readable, compulsively so. But the unearthly beauty of 'Trinity Fields' lies in the evocation of Los Alamos. Morrow is intelligent, compassionate and forgiving. He makes us understand not only why but exactly how a great nation could find itself in a 'project' not clearly thought out, making 'gadgets' that might destroy our world.'
CAROLYN SEE, 'Washington Post'
'Astonishing in its breadth and ambition, 'Trinity Fields' stands as a revelation of the diverging paths facing a generation, and as an intimate record of a dangerous age.'
