Michael Köhlmeier

Two Gentlemen on the Beach

€ 26.95


On the face of it, Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin - two icons of the twentieth century - couldn`t be more different. One the statesman whose resolve led a nation in the struggle against Nazi Germany, the other the world-famous comedian behind The Great Dictator. But they are bound by a dark secret: both suffer from depression. When a chance encounter reveals what they share, an unusual and unlikely friendship ensues. A series of therapeutic meetings across the world, in Germany, England and America, sees each become the other`s confidant as they talk of their `black dog days`. With the eye of a masterfully subtle narrator, Michael Köhlmeier imagines a startling friendship of unique understanding between this extraordinary pair; a friendship of the twentieth century between art and politics, humour and seriousness, but which at heart remains an understanding between two men - the poor tramp and the grand statesman - who bring together the history of the century.
