Day by A. L. Kennedy
Day begins with Alfred Day returning to the POW camp where he spent part of World War II. It's now 1949 and he's there to participate in a documentary about the POW camp. It's also a return to the only part of his life where he felt he belonged. Growing up with an abusive father and victimized mother, he decided to join the war before he's called and further decided he'll only be a tail gunner in a bomber. The war provided him with the camaraderie of his crewmates and opportunities for love, but those disappeared once peacetime came. Day has received positive reviews with The Telegraph saying, "Day is a remarkable performance: an eerily convincing act of ventriloquism in which the internal monologue of a deeply troubled and inarticulate young man is transmuted into language that conveys the blunt, painful, sometimes beautiful and often comic flashing of his thoughts."
