From the cover: “Benedick Hunter is a man who has lost everything. A failed actor and divorced father on the verge of a nervous breakdown, his life takes on a new direction when he finds a book of his mother’s in which real people and their stories are strangely intertwined with traditional fairy-tales. In 1965, Laura, an American illustrator of children’s books, committed suicide in Primrose Hill after Benedick’s father left her for another woman. Her son can remember nothing about her, but the fairy-tales and their tantalising illustrations convince him that his own life is in some way echoing and repeating hers.
