MacDONALD, Alastair. Flavian's Fortune : a psychological thriller. St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada : Harry Cuff Publications Limited, 1985. First Edition. (Printed by Creative Printers & Publishers). Pp (2),i-vii,(1),1-196,(2). 8vo, trade paperback.
Dr. Alastair MacDonald (b. October 24, 1920, Ballindalloch, Scotland - d. April 29, 2007, St. John's) author, poet, teacher. From 1955 to 1987 he was a member of the English Department of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
"Alastair Macdonald, who is better known as a poet than as a novelist, writes in somewhat differnt vein in this unusual suspense story set in the alleys, quads, and thickets of England's academe, and at the castle of an eccentric laird in the Scottish Highlands. The events are narrated by the outrageous Flavian, and the Oxford philosophy don and thriller writer, Winnie Walker. With its subtle blend of realism, social and academic satire, and fantasy, the tale excoriates the hapless reader from Flavian's opening scalpel cuts to the final coup de grāce." - from the rear cover.
