A Designated Man, Hardback



Osip returns home to a remote island in the Mediterranean, hoping that it will provide him a haven after the traumas of war.

On his arrival, he narrowly escapes death at the hands of Bostan, a supreme feudist.

The island, he discovers, is still governed by the archaic code of honour which has condemned the inhabitants to perpetual bloodshed and obliterated countless families, including Osip's own.

Helped by the aged Kokona, and by her earthy lover, Dev, Osip restores the watermill he has inherited.

Soon, he and Bostan cross paths again. Beguiled by Bostan, Osip befriends him. When Bostan is ambushed by other feudists and left for dead, Osip rushes to his aid.

While dressing his wounds, he discovers Bostan's true identity.

When Bostan recovers, the two of them set out to end the eternal feuding.

This is a deeply affecting fable that resounds with hope.
