Abstract:

"Many years ago, Mr. Golightly wrote a work of dramatic fiction that became an international best seller. Now his reputation is on the decline, and he finds himself badly out of touch with the modern world. He decides to take a holiday in the historic village of Great Calne, hoping to use the opportunity to bring his work up to date. But he soon finds that events overtake his plans and that the themes of his masterpiece are being strangely re-created in the lives of the villagers around him." "As he comes to know his neighbors better, Mr. Golightly begins to examine his attitude toward love and to ponder the terrible catastrophe of his only son's death. And as we begin to learn the true, and extraordinary, identity of Mr. Golightly, we discover the nature of the secret sorrow that haunts him and that links him to his new friends."--Jacket.
