In the final days of the Second World War, Hugh Selwyn Mauberley scrawls his desperate account on the walls and ceilings of his ice-cold prison high in the Austrian Alps. Officers of the liberating army discover his frozen, disfigured corpse and his astonishing testament – the sordid truth that he alone possessed. Fascinated but horrified, they learn of a dazzling array of characters caught up in a scandal and political corruption.
Famous Last Words is part-thriller, part-horror story; it is also a meditation on history and the human soul and it is Findley’s fine achievement that he has combined these elements into a web that constantly surprises and astounds the reader.
