Product Description

Details

After a bike crash in a foggy Edinburgh, troubled young actor Robert Lewis wakes to find that life has changed for the darker. And the weirder. He's still a deceitful egoist but now life seems to be deceiving and manipulating him. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong. He's losing control of his love life, his starring role in a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, and, quite possibly, his mind. "A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde" is a dark, maniacal thriller that explores many kinds of duality - individual, social and cultural, and is a heartfelt tale about the search for belonging and the nature of love and desire. It is also bloody funny.

Press Reviews

'MacNeil's novel, though drawing on Stevenson's novella, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, is never slavishly derivative. His Method Actor's Guide is, in its finest glinting moments, that "whole new thing" of which Hemingway wrote, and from first to last an enticing read'

'It is a phenomenally good novel. It is brilliant, touching, funny and clever. It is also a sign that Kevin MacNeil is only just starting. Some of you out there can look forward to another 30 or 40 years of such quality and better. You are very lucky. We are lucky'

'A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde is a great book...intricate and powerful'

'A writer with a real sense of the human condition ... Written with insight, wit and wisdom, it's a black comedy with serious things to say'

'For all the big ideas, clever wordplay and subtle themes, A Method Actor's Guide remains a wonderful romp of a book, a funny, irreverent and moving 21st-century look at human nature, and an intriguing rewiring of a classic'
