Summary Kif is a country boy, an orphan whose longing for a life beyond the fields and byres leads him to join the Army. In the mud and agony of Flanders he meets and makes friends with a wider variety of people than he would ever have believed possible. After the war Kif, like millions of others, is homeless and out of work. He invests his racetrack winnings in a bookmaker's business. But one of the partners runs away with all their capital, and Kif is down to rock-bottom again. It is then that he meets Angel Carroll once more, and through Angel his sister Baba, the girl who becomes Kif's passion and obsession.
