You can now view a preview of the exclusive video trailer for Douglas Cowie‘s new novel, Noon In Paris, Eight In Chicago (published 26 May), produced by RooiNooi.

Noon In Paris, Eight In Chicago re-imagines the turbulent love affair between French feminist Simone de Beauvoir and American novelist Nelson Algren, following the couple’s unconventional, transatlantic relationship from the 1940s to the 1960s. Watch the trailer to see Douglas talking about the themes of the novel and what writing means to him.

Mark Blottner, co-director of critically acclaimed documentary Nelson Algren: The End is Nothing, The Road is All, has given the novel a ringing endorsement, saying ‘it captures the tragic love between Algren and de Beauvoir, exposing their tender, vulnerable souls’.
