1969. Hollywood descends on a tiny Scottish village for the making of Billy Wilder’s most ambitious picture yet: a sprawling epic detailing The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. But the formidable director and his crew soon come into conflict with Jim Outhwaite, a young scientist seeking evidence for monsters. 2014. Stuck just a short walk from the East London street where she grew up, ambitious Film Studies lecturer Gemma MacDonald is restless and hungry for change. A job offer in the Highlands seems to offer escape – but only at a cost to her relationships with family and an equally ambitious American boyfriend.
Patrick Kincaid ist ein britisch-amerikanischer Autor von Dichtung und Romanen. „Patrick Kincaid beautifully captures time and place and brings a wonderful sense of authenticity to Loch Ness at the end of the 1960s. A real feeling of being there is a key part of the book’s success, not least in the sparkling chapter where our young scientist goes to a party to celebrate the 1969 moon landing.“ (Leser) (34 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 319 Seiten noch günstig?
