Two teenage girls have mysteriously disappeared from the small Scottish Orkney island of Eday. It is as if they have vanished from the face of the earth without a trace. The island is in turmoil. Eight years later in Cambridgeshire, seven year old Callum Thompson is trying to cope with his parents' recent seperation. He begins to act strangely - constantly talking about his 'other daddy' and his new friend - Jeremy, whom nobody else knows about.

Our Nazis: Representations Of Fascism In Contemporary Literature And Film
- Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
Why has a fascination with fascism re-emerged after the Cold War? What is its cultural function now, in an era of commemoration? Focusing particularly on the British context, this study offers an analysis of contemporary popular and literary fiction, film, TV and art exhibitions about Nazis and Nazism. Petra Rau brings this material into dialogue with earlier responses to fascism and demonstrates how, paradoxically, Nazism has been both mediated and mythologised to the extent that it now often replaces engagement with actual, violent history.
