Full Cast & Crew
The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair comes with some fanfare: translated into 32 languages; 2m copies sold in a year; winner of three French literary prizes; trailing comparisons to Roth , Franzen and Bellow. A reviewer should ignore all this, of course — even when the book under discussion includes an acidic commentary on publishing hype — but I must mention it out of fairness. So many critics seem to have been knocked on their behinds by Dicker's novel that I can't be sure I'm not missing something in filing what you might call a minority report. They see a masterpiece; I see a completely ordinary, amiably cartoonish and well aerated page-turner that does nothing interesting in literary terms at all. The protagonist of Dicker's novel is Marcus Goldman, a shallow, handsome, praise-hungry young man whose first novel made him rich and famous.
The truth is… I was really looking forward to this new, American crime series and I really wanted to like it. A sense of place is important in crime drama any drama, in fact as it gives us a visual and psychological reference point, not just geographically but also in terms of language and dialect, local traditions and behaviour. Maine is framed lovingly — lush forests, ochre hues, quaint road-side diners and peace and quiet with coastal splash-spots aplenty. The first scene transports us back to the mids, where Harry, a famous novelist, is doing what romanticised versions of novelists do: sitting on the seashore, waves rolling in, writing, engaging his inner muse and sketching in his notepad. Like instantly. There was no chat, no to-and-fro, no slow development of friendship.
