This title is part of Robert Yeo’s First Editions, his preloved titles. People of the Pear Tree is about people reacting to the disruptions and the brutality of war, clinging to traditions, family ties, finding outlets of love and passionate sex as starvation, malaria, dysentery, torture and death stalk them; of courage in battle and of gentle tenderness, sentimentality, and racial prejudices. The novel not only exposes the conflicts between the guerrillas the jungles but also the power struggles within the Japanese military machine.
