**The dazzling new novel from the prize-winning; bestselling author of Middle England**

In the heady summer of 1977; a naïve young woman called Calista sets out from Athens to venture into the wider world. On a Greek island that has been turned into a film set; she finds herself working for the famed Hollywood director Billy Wilder; about whom she knows almost nothing. But the time she spends in this glamorous; unfamiliar new life will change her for good.

While Calista is thrilled with her new adventure; Wilder himself is living with the realisation that his star may be on the wane. Rebuffed by Hollywood; he has financed his new film with German money; and when Calista follows him to Munich for the shooting of further scenes; she finds herself joining him on a journey of memory into the dark heart of his family history.

In a novel that is at once a tender coming-of-age story and an intimate portrait of one of cinema's most intriguing figures; Jonathan Coe turns his gaze on the nature of time and fame; of family and the treacherous lure of nostalgia. When the world is catapulting towards change; do you hold on for dear life or decide it's time to let go?
