Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Tropical sun, cheap booze and more natural beauty than you could shake David Attenborough at, Kim came to Los Acazares for the same reasons as all the other people who are stuck out here. She had to get away.

Los Alcazares is a holiday paradise. It's also a place of fantastic dreams and incredible secrets, an island in the ocean where ley lines cross and tectonic crash, a geological hot spot where you can't trust anything - not even the earth itself.

Kim trusts Matthew, her lover. She trusts Stella, her friend. But she may have been wrong. A man has been killed on Los Alcazares and both of them were there when he died. That's what they're saying anyway; but the island is full of talk. At the beach bar where there is no beach, Kim waits for Matthew to find out finally what she can believe.

'Brayfield is a fine prose stylist; her characterisation is good, as is the sense of place' Sunday Times

About the Author:

Celia Brayfield is a novelist and cultural commentator. She is the author of nine novels. Wild Weekend explores the tensions in a Suffolk village in homage to Oliver Goldmsith's She Stoops to Conquer. To explore suburban living, she created the community of Westwick and explored mid-life manners in Mr Fabulous And Friends, and the environmental implications of urbanisation in Getting Home. She has often juxtaposed historical and contemporary settings, notably eighteenth century Spain in Sunset, pre-revolutionary St Petersburg in White Ice and Malaysia in the time of World War II in Pearls. Four of her novels have been optioned by major US, UK or French producers.

Her non-fiction titles include two standard works on the art of writing: Arts Reviews (Kamera Books, 2008) and Bestseller (Fourth Estate, 1996.) Her most recent is Deep France (Pan, 2004) a journal of a year she spent writing in south-west France.

She has served on the management committee of The Society of Authors and judged national literary awards including the Betty Trask Award and the Macmillan Silver PEN Prize. A former media columnist, she contributes to The Times, BBC Radio 4 and other national and international media.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
