The Railway Man - by Eric Lomax

      Polly - My friend read the above book and it helped her greatly as she lost her 'sweet heart' in the Burma Railways during WWII. She asked me whether I could possibly obtain an email address of the author so that she could convey her thanks. I don't know if this is possible, and if not, I would be grateful to know even this email has reached him.

      Keith - >Poly, This book, of which I have a copy, was first published in 1995 by Johnathan Cape. The copy I have is a paperback published by Vintage, part of the Random House Group,
      Drop them a note, see if they can help. However, this is one of a number of books about the Burma Siam Railway, what made her read this one? If at all possible, if your friend can supply details of the one she lost, it might be possible to find out a little more. I say maybe, as she is not next of kin so to speak, it may put obstacles in the way. Sorry if I have not worded that very well, but I do not want to hold out false hope to anyone.
