Neil Jordan’s Mistaken

Posted by Glennis Byron on January 14, 2011 in News tagged with ,

‘I had been mistaken for him so many times that when he died it was as if part of myself had died too.’

While Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire) is best known as a film maker, he is also a novelist, and  Mistaken (John Murray 2011) concerns two boys, raised on different sides of Dublin in the sixties, who are constantly mistaken for each other (cue doubles) and who learn to exploit this interchangeability. One, notably, lives next door to the house once occupied by Bram Stoker.

The novel has been receiving some very good reviews in the papers.
