Ghost MacIndoe
By

Rating
Following in the wake of his highly praised first two books, Jonathan Buckley's `Ghost MacIndoe' is a bold and ambitious novel that focuses on the life of Alexander MacIndoe, a self-centred man who is characterised only by his physical beauty and a complete lack of will. Jonathan Buckley's third novel opens with Alexander MacIndoe's earliest memory: a February morning in 1944, in the aftermath of the second wave of German air-raids. Set mainly in London and Brighton, Ghost MacIndoe is the story of the next fifty-four years of Alexander's life. We meet his glamorous mother and his father, a pioneering plastic surgeon; a traumatised war veteran called Mr Beckwith with whom Alexander works for several years as a gardener and, most important of all, the orphaned Megan Beckwith, whose relationship with Alexander crystallises into a romance in the 1970s. In the wake of his highly praised first two novels, Jonathan Buckley's third miraculously brings into being one simple life and the last sixty years of English history.

Reviews

'The mood is subdued, but the accumulated effect of his descriptions is deceptively powerful ... Although Ghost MacIndoe celebrates the virtues of self-possession, it is as a meditation on the nature of memory itself that it makes its most lasting impression'. Sunday Times
