Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Mary Guthrie, a student of English at Edinburgh University becomes fascinated by the fantastical 17th century writer, Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty and sets out to write a thesis on him. She pursues her research in his ancestral home, Cromarty House, now a crumbling ruin. There under the current laird, Sir James she is drawn into an increasingly Gothic exploration of the history of the eccentric Urquharts and the maze of tunnels beneath the House.The Catholic priest of her parish, Ebenezer Krook, to whom she loses her virginity, is a distant and illegitimate descendant of Urquhart. He renounces his calling and goes to Edinburgh, where he is taken on by an idiosyncratic bookseller. Subconsciously he is searching for his father, who disappeared in the Spanish Civil War, leaving him with little more than a book and the memory of a boat trip to the Corryvreckan whirlpool, which allows for a cameo appearance by George Orwell.The novel captures the charm and atmosphere of Edinburgh and rural Scotland.Like Jean-Pierre Ohl's first novel, Mr Dick or The Tenth Book, this book will appeal to readers who like clever and unusual mysteries, where past and present, fact and fiction are ingeniously merged together.

Über den Autor: Jean-Pierre Ohl is a bookseller in Talence near Bordeaux. He is the author of two novels Mr Dick or The Tenth Book and The Lairds of Cromarty, both published in English by Dedalus.

Mike Mitchell has published over seventy translations from German and French, including Gustav Meyrink's five novels and The Dedalus Book of Austrian Fantasy. His translation of Rosendorfer's Letters Back to Ancient China won the 1998 Schlegel-Tieck Translation Prize after he had been shortlisted in previous years for his translations of Stephanie by Herbert Rosendorfer and The Golem by Gustav Meyrink. His translations have also been shortlisted three times for The Oxford Weidenfeld Translation Prize.
