Nailing Down the Saint

Author(s): Craig Cliff

NZ Fiction

Hollywood, fatherhood, levitation. This smart, funny, thought-provoking novel is full of surprises. Duncan Blake is a Kiwi filmmaker whose move to LA has not gone to plan. After a series of setbacks, he's working at a chain restaurant, his marriage is on shaky ground after a porn-related faux pas and his son won't stop watching Aladdin. When Duncan gets the chance to scout locations for a fated director's biopic of Saint Joseph of Copertino, it's the lifeline he's been searching for. But in Italy, in the footsteps of the seventeenth-century levitator, he must confront miracles, madness and the realities of modern movie making. A novel about the pursuit of dreams, the moral calculus it entails, and the possibility that the rational, materialist worldview isn't all it's cracked up to be.
