Did You Know?
Once my son was diagnosed with cancer, I had this huge amount of pain and anger about how this could happen to the child I loved so much. And I definitely directed that into The War Zone. I wrote it differently than anything I've written. I would rush back to the house while he was in chemotherapy and just write for two hours. I almost felt as if I were channeling it.
Stuart's novel, The War Zone, was awarded the Whitbread Prize for Best Novel in 1989, only to have the award withdrawn before the prize giving ceremony amid controversy involving one dissenting judge.
