Competition – ‘The Cult of Nostalgia’ by Bruce Bruschi
Thinking that her neurotic boyfriend Simon is planning a surprise wedding for them, Carly, a bohemian life coach with no real clue as to which direction her life should take, rushes across San Francisco in time to witness him marry a member of the Morningside cult. Realising the newlyweds have stolen her great-uncle’s diary, she follows them to Paris, determined to discover why, and maybe win back Simon in the process.
Carly’s story is interwoven with that of her great-uncle Edward, as he recalls revisiting Paris in the 1960s and attempts to diarise his experiences in the 1920s, when he rubbed shoulders (and more) with Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein.
‘The Cult of Nostalgia’ is a hugely evocative portrait of Paris and all its charms, as well as a brilliantly witty account of yearning for lost years and breaking away from modern-day cynicism.
