Revolution, commissioned by Transworld Publishers, and published under the Bantam imprint in New York (1986) and London (1987), and in Paris by Editions J’ai Lu (1987).
Book of the film directed by Hugh Hudson and starring Al Pacino, Donald Sutherland and Nastassja Kinski. Screenplay by Robert Dillon.
The film was hugely over-budget and bombed. I had to take notes while sitting in Hugh Hudson’s office watching an advance screening. There was an air of doom hanging over him while I did so. But the novel, set in the American War of Independence, was fun to write, and the written word being what it is I didn’t have the problem of pretending that East Anglia was New York State.
