E idea of a young Greek woman becoming involved chance in the orbit of Billy Wilder the movie director of the orbit of Billy Wilder the Hollywood movie director of Like It Hot and many Austrian born Wilder left Germany and then France for the USA to avoid the Nazis and his conflicted feelings about his return to Germany to make a film financed by a German hedge fund is one of a number of features in this book which are utterly convincingThe author has done a uite brilliant job here Somehow he has woven numerous Wilder uotes numerous incidents from Wilder s life and career and from the the film Fedora into the story as told by Calista the female narrator of the story Reading the book my world slipped away for several hours In my mind i was in the 1970 s in Greece Paris London and Los Angeles bathed in the light of youthful possibility and of Wilder s charismaThis is a wonderful book There is no way that my review can do it justice but you really should read it for yourself 1976 Los Angeles in an xpensive restaurant a young girl is wined and dined by a Hollywood film director However this is not a Metoo moment nor a Metoo novel It is a portrait of Billy Wilder at the Découverte au Bucegi: Base extraterrestre et Histoire de l'humanité (OVNIS) end of his career painted by the girl Calista is fictional though very loosely drawn from one of Wilder s assistants on his last movie Fedora It is interesting but not much than thatI did not find Calista plausible Chance might have found her a job on a film set maybe What I could not believe was that a close relationship would develop between the two Coe has him opening his heart to this young girl This is a novelistic device to show what Wilder was really like his chats to Calista being peppered with things he really said but not to anyone like CalistaCalista also functions as a character device We meet her first in 2013 when her career is over and her family has grown up With one daughter off to study music in Sydney and the other waiting to go to Oxford and a big house in Hammersmith I struggled formpathy Anyway the thing is she recalls that Wilder was in a similar position when she knew him Thus she finds words of wisdom and a renewed sense of purpose in life The nding of the novel I found corny I don t think Wilder would have wanted to turn this into a filmPolly Samson tried the same thing with Leonard Cohen coincidentally with a young girl also on a Greek island William Boyd has just released his novel using a thinly ve.

I guess I m core demographic for this book Double Indemnity is my All Time Favourite Film time favourite film The Apartment not far behind I njoyed it normously while at the same time feeling that a brilliant idea hadn t uite come off The book s two faults both arise from its being so short the wraparound story is so minimalist that it s clunky and the book would have benefited from a dissenting viewpoint The narrator and presumably the author assume that Wilder and Diamond found it hard to raise money in the 1970s because what they did was no longer fashionable But it wasn t only Scorsese and co who made that decade the silver age of Hollywood people such as Hal Ashby were making wonderful movies of a much traditional kind The book actually contains what I take to be a reference to Shampoo I suspect what I take to be a reference to Shampoo I suspect Billy and Iz really had run out of road artistically as well as commercially One discrepancy there s a suggestion in the Paris chapter that The Lost Weekend was a box office hit and an arlier one in the Munich chapter that it wasn t Wikipedia says it was I usually Extraterrestres : l'enquête enjoy Jonathan Coe but this book was a particularly delightful and perfectly formed little work showing off his undoubted talents in a light almost wistful wayHe has shown hisnthusiasm for the cinema in Les Gardiens: Comprendre la présence des extraterrestres – au-delà des abductions earlier works but never as comprehensively as here Creating a scenario in which Billy Wilder features centrally but feels like a romantic comedy is a tour de forceEven the darker wartime work on Death Mills is treatedlegantly and with no unnecessary dramatics but a deeply felt sympathyA uick read I was sorry had finished A delight Some books have the capacity to stay with you for a long time I read this in a single day and was sad when it was finished It will certainly stay with me for a very long time It is hard to Enquête sur des extra-terrestres qui sont déjà parmi nous : Le Mystère des Ummites explain just how good this book is It is full of humanity the possibilities of youth the challenges of later life thease of the young to look forward the need for older people to do the same There is love friendship regret kindness and inspiration all brilliantly L’ARCHE: L’AVERTISSEMENT DES EXTRATERRESTRES D’ALPHA DU CENTAURE evoked through the recollections of a late middle aged woman looking back from the present day on her life in the 1970 s when she was much younger The narrator s voice was so convincing to me that as I read the author s notes at thend it came as a little jolt to be reminded that the author is maleThe book revolves around th.

Iled Jean Seberg Then there s David Mitchell and his semi fictitious account of Sandy Denny None of them carried this reader with them on their journeys to the past Beginning in the present day and moving back to the 1970s Jonathan Coe s latest novel Mr Wilder and Me focuses on Calista Frangopoulou who as a young woman in 1976 leaves her Athens home to backpack around America where she meets by chance Hollywood director Billy Wilder Back home in Athens she is xcited to learn that Wilder is coming to Greece to shoot Fedora a film starring William Holden Marthe Keller and Hildegard Knef and which having been turned down by Hollywood is being filmed in Europe with German money And Calista who speaks Greek English French and German is Les gènes manipulés d'Adam: Les origines humaines à travers l'hypothèse de l'intervention biogénétique evenxcited when she discovers she has been offered a job on set as a translator As the story moves between Greece Germany France and America we see Calista in the orbit of famous actors film producers directors screenwriters t al as she transforms herself from a naive young woman to a composer of music for films from a naive young woman to a composer of music for films First person narrated by Calista this part coming of age story and part portrait of Billy Wilder is one that I was very interested in when I spotted it whilst browsing on however although there were parts to the story I njoyed I just didn t find this as interesting or ANUNNAKI: Reptilianos na História da Humanidade entertaining as I hadxpected to I wasn t convinced by the close relationship that developed very uickly between Billy Wilder and Calista where Wilder revealed his vulnerabilities and shared intimate details About His Life To his life to young translator he ven asked Calista for advice about certain things and also offered her advice about her love life which seemed very unlikely between someone in his position and hers I also felt the middle section of the book where Billy Wilder s past life story was recounted in the form of a truncated screenplayscript didn T Work Very Well That S Not work very well That s not say as previously mentioned that there weren t parts to this story that I njoyed and on a positive note I felt Mr Coe s voice as a young female was uite convincing something I think he did Ashtar Sheran: Your Future on Eden even better in his novel The Rain Before it Falls however if I m beingntirely honest Mr Wilder and Me is a book that won t stay in my mind for very long and for me this was a 3 Star read3 Stars A really ntertaining read Now to find and watch again Billy Wilder s film Fedora. Nny tender and profoundly truthful Jonathan Coe turns his gaze to the nature of time fame family and nostalgia When the world is catapulting towards change do you hold on for dear life or decide it's time to let go. ,
