About the book
Monaco, May 1968. Immediately prior to the start of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, as the beau monde mingles with the drivers and their racing cars before the eyes of the world press, the entire grandstand is witness to a terrible incident. Within seconds, two people are caught up in an accident which will change their lives forever. From now on Jack Preston, a simple mechanic for Team Lotus, will bear the scars of injuries from which he shielded Deedee, a budding film star and embodiment of the new social mores.
At home with his wife, in a remote English village where the 1950s are slow to recede, Jack waits full of longing for a sign of Deedee’s gratitude, while following her meteoric rise on television. In a style that oozes restraint, Peter Terrin showcases his rich and evocative imagination.
