About this book
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, this is a dazzling story of mislaid identity, misdirected passion and miscalculated consequences, set on the sunlit Greek island of Skios. Frayn's other successful and award-winning titles include "Headlong" and "Spies". Sure to delight fans of Michael Frayn's comedies like "Noises Off" and "Clockwise". 'A deliciously absurd scenario and, in the hands of a master farceur like Michael Frayn, it just gets better and better...' "Mail On Sunday" Hardback jacket image.
The Fred Toppler Foundation's annual lecture is to be given by Dr Norman Wilfred, the world-famous authority on the scientific organisation of science. He turns out to be surprisingly young and charming - not at all the intimidating figure they had been expecting.
