Overview:

What It Takes to Be Human : What It Takes to Be Human, the haunting new novel by Orange Prize-shortlisted author Marilyn Bowering, considers the life of Sandy Grey, an idealistic young air cadet who wants nothing more than to enlist in the Second World War. Sandy's father, a fundamentalist preacher, refuses to grant his son's request, fearing that the world is living its very last days. When Sandy's attempts to oppose his father turn violent, the novel takes a dramatic shift in setting into the fragmented world of an asylum for the criminally insane. Bowering pushes her characters to the very fringe of civilization, love and sanity during the darkening days of a distant conflict to expose the acute parallels between their lives and the lives of those being torn apart by war.
