about

Nights at the Alexandra by William Trevor - a classic early novel by one of the world's greatest writers A brief encounter in wartime Ireland - the memory of which lasts a lifetime In a small town in Ireland middle-aged Harry looks back on his wartime adolescence when he fetched and carried for the beautiful young Englishwoman who had taken over the big stone house with her much older German husband. But Frau Messinger's health is failing, and her husband decides to build a cinema in the town to honour her. Harry will work in it; one day he will own it; and he will always remain captive to the memory of the beguiling young woman who arrived suddenly from abroad and lit up his drab provincial life.

For many years he has lived in Devon.
