Grand Canyon




A gripping, unflinching alternative history of the Second World War by the brilliant writer Vita Sackville-West

The Second World War has been won - by the Germans. Only America still stands protected by a precarious promise of peace from the Reich. Lester and Helen, strangers staying at the Grand Canyon Hotel in Arizona are united by their memories of a lost England. When the fragile peace shatters, only Lester and Helen can take charge and lead their fellow guests into an uncertain future.

About the Author

Vita Sackville-West

Vita Sackville-West was born in 1892 at Knole in Kent, the only child of aristocratic parents. In 1913 she married diplomat Harold Nicolson, with whom she had two sons and travelled extensively before settling at Kent’s Sissinghurst Castle in 1930, where she devoted much of her time to creating its now world-famous garden. Throughout her life Sackville-West had a number of other relationships with both men and women, and her unconventional marriage would later become the subject of a biography written by her son Nigel Nicolson. Though she produced a substantial body of work, amongst which are writings on travel and gardening, Sackville-West is best known for her novels The Edwardians (1930) and All Passion Spent (1931), and for the pastoral poem The Land (1926), which was awarded the prestigious Hawthornden Prize. Sackville-West died on 2 June 1962 at her Sissinghurst home, aged seventy.

Praise for Grand Canyon

“A startling piece of speculative fiction… A curious read, written with the urgency and pain of wartime, and it fired me with a fresh interest in its author”
