VanishingBook - 2014
A new, blackly comic novel of camouflage and mystery from the Man Booker Prize shortlisted Gerard Woodward. Towards the end of the Second World War a young British artist called Kenneth Brill is arrested for painting landscapes near the old village of Heathrow. The authorities suspect his paintings contain coded information about the new military airfield that is to be built there. Brill protests that he is merely recording a landscape that will soon disappear. Under interrogation a more complicated picture emerges as Brill tells the story of his life. But a darker picture also comes to light.
