CôTE D'AZUR

CôTE D'AZUR
By Alan C. Baird

GENRE: Fantasy, Adventure
LOGLINE:

"There's nothing quite so romantic as spending one's youth in a foreign land." Eric is a 20-something American guy who's having the time of his life on the French Riviera. Or maybe Eric is the 60-something who's looking back on his earlier years with nostalgic regret and trying to alter the course of his life.

SYNOPSIS:

This story was inspired by Lawrence Durrell, and his experiments with metafictional techniques in The Avignon Quintet ("fictional" characters interacting with "real" characters) and The Alexandria Quartet (the Rashomon of literature, with multiple points of view). It might be described as a hedonistic tale in the shape of a Möbius strip, trapped in an Escher wood engraving: magical realism with just a dash of irrealism, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine.
