Abstract:

With powerful, never-before-published material from the original manuscript, here for the first time is the complete, uncut edition of>King Rat, the fourth novel in James Clavell's bestselling Asian saga. Set against the seething backdrop of a World War II prison camp in Japanese-occupied territory, King Rat is an epic novel of savagery and survival -- and of one man's all-consuming struggle for dominance over captives and captors alike. Vivid new passages bring Clavell's now-classic story out of the confines of a brutal prison camp and into the outside world ... into the lives of the women deprived of their men, living on memories, hopes, and regret--women whose extraordinary courage transcends the madness that surrounds them.
