'Brilliant. A Citizen Kane of a novel' Daily Telegraph __________________________________ Meet John James Todd: Scotsman, auteur, Rousseau-fanatic - and 'subversive element' Born in 1899, John James Todd is one of the great, failed geniuses of the last century. His reminiscences, collected in The New Confessions, take us from Edinburgh to the Western Front, the Berlin film-world in the Twenties to Hollywood in the Thirties, Forties and beyond. Suffering imprisonment, shooting, marriage, fatherhood, divorce and McCarthyism, Todd is a hostage to good fortune, ill-judgement, bad luck, the vast sweep of history and the cruel, cruel hand of fate . . . __________________________________ 'A magnificent feat of storytelling and panoramic reconstruction' Observer 'Paced and plotted with sinewy, unfailing skill . . . Boyd has given us a work of rich, ripe and immensely enjoyable entertainment' Sunday Times 'Simply the best realistic storyteller of his generation' Independent

"An entertaining and darkly comic novel, a novel given weight and ballast by the pressure of recent history." --The New York Times "Here is the rarest of books, the sort you want to read again--even before you've finished it the first time. . . . Boyd gives us a magnificent experience." --People "Boyd has created an important and complex character in a vividly evoked series of settings. . . . He has written a subtle and provocative history of our time." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "Entertaining and intellectually engaging." --Time -An entertaining and darkly comic novel, a novel given weight and ballast by the pressure of recent history.- --The New York Times -Here is the rarest of books, the sort you want to read again--even before you've finished it the first time. . . .
