  • Winter Ghosts

    Wed, 20 Oct 2010 06:35

    The Great War took much more than lives. It robbed a generation of friends, lovers and futures. In Freddie Watsons case, it took his beloved brother and, at times, his peace of mind. Unable to cope with his grief, Freddie has spent much of the time since in a sanatorium. In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is traveling through the French Pyrenees, another region that has seen too much bloodshed over the years. During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road. Shaken, he stumbles into the woods, emerging by a tiny village. There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful local woman, also mourning a lost generation. Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories of remembrance and loss. By the time dawn breaks, he will have stumbled across a tragic mystery that goes back through the centuries. By turns thrilling, poignant and haunting, Winter Ghosts is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage.

    Brilliant new edition from a terrific small publisher. Sefan Zweig had this to say,

    "Job is more than a novel and legend, it is a pure, perfect poetic work, which is destined to outlast everything that we, his contemporaries, have created and written. In unity of construction, in depth of feeling, in purity, in the musicality of the language, it can scarcely be surpassed."

    Nuff said.

    What with my current and inexhaustible Masterchef obsession, this new 'cookbook' from Phaidon is definitely going in my letter to Santa. Along with an executive room here, a 1st class round trip to Copenhagen from these people and a table here

    Many Congratulations to Howard Jacobson on winning the Man Booker Prize 2010 for The Finkler Question as predicted by me, in the office.

    Unfortunately, I failed to put a tenner on him when he was 8-1 a month ago...

    Not that we're condoning gambling at all, which is evil and pernicious...
