This is the story of a marriage and a love affair, conducted amid the unfolding politics and larger-than-life personalities of the international movie world. A director is caught between allegiances in this absorbing, urbane, and viciously witty novel, peopled with brilliantly drawn characters. Forbes is a world famous director and script writer: in A Distant Laughter he has created a deeply poignant story of stunning authenticity.
