Book Description

To understand Take Down The Flags you have to go back a few years. The original idea was a collection of short stories based on real life memories from people who had experienced war and the aftermath.
What did they remember?
Was it all misery?
Did they wave the flags when the ceasefire happened?
Did they actually – miss – it?
Instead of just writing up what they said I have used (with their permission) their stories and recollections as a basis to form various stories. Names and places have been changed and various stories have been altered for dramatic purposes.
But this is really what the book is about.
Stories.
Reflections.
A chance for people to look back.

A pleasure as always to read something new by Mark. Take Down The Flags appears to be a simple format and yet behind the theme there lies a black sinister side. Some of these stories are amusing "Memories of Aunt Win" could literally be transformed into a TV drama overnight while others provoke a darker tone. This is probably Marks most visual work yet as imagery literally flies off the pages. My favourite is the story "Harry" which describes the working day of a department store caretaker being told that he has to go. It is a sad thoughtful piece of a bygone age and what happens when you get older. A recommended book.
