Nought Happens Twice Thus

By Adam Thorpe.

It is July 1921, and a production company has descended on Max Gate, Thomas Hardy's house near Dorchester, to make a film of The Mayor of Casterbridge.

Hardy wants his second wife Florence to come and watch the actors at work.

But Florence, worn down by caring for a man who is not only twice her age but who has also spent much of their marriage writing the greatest love poems of the century to his dead first wife, cannot share his enthusiasm.

Hardy has 45 minutes to try to change her mind.
