In the twilight of the British Raj, Wee Charlie strives to understand the peculiar ways of adults. He lives with his Army parents in a remote fortress, where the Colonel regards him as a bigger menace than militant Japan. When a terrorist disguises a bomb as a coconut, Charlie discovers there can be a close link between holiness and murder.
The big human comedy fuels the writing of Bryce McBryce. This title was first published in paperback in 2006 as Wee Charlie’s World. In a far fortress of the British Raj on the eve of World War 2, the Colonel trembles in his rage; the nuns pray; while an innocent army child strives to understand that baffling species, the Adult. He is a bigger problem than militant Japan.
