Wartime novel au­thor vis­its Lochgilp­head

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

COF­FEE, cake and a book sign­ing are on the agenda for Ar­gyll Book Cen­tre, Lochgilp­head this week­end.

Neal Asch­er­son will visit the book­shop to­mor­row (Satur­day Au­gust 26) to pro­mote his first work of fiction which was pub­lished this month. The Death of the

Fron­sac is a story of di­vided loy­al­ties, treach­ery and ex­ile; about peo­ple in flight from the des­tinies that seemed to be theirs be­fore the war dis­rupted the world they knew.

This is an un­for­get­table re-cre­ation of life in wartime and of the tragic fate of Poland in the 20th cen­tury; a novel about sab­o­tage, be­trayal and the ter­ri­ble sad­ness of ex­ile.

Other works by Neal Asch­er­son that will be avail­able on the day in­clude The Black

Sea, a homage to an ocean and its shores and a med­i­ta­tion on Eurasian history; and Stone Voices: the Search for Scot­land, which weaves to­gether a story of Scot­land’s past dur­ing the time of ge­ol­ogy, ar­chae­ol­ogy, myth and le­gend, with a story of mod­ern Scot­land and its iden­tity.

The book sign­ing will take place from 2pm-3pm in the book­shop.
