Neil Jordan works with equal mastery and originality as a screenwriter/director (THE CRYING GAME, THE END OF THE AFFAIR, etc.) and as a novelist (SHADE, SUNRISE WITH SEA MONSTER, etc.). In his novel MISTAKEN, he explores the connections between themes of mistaken identity, pedophilia, lust, and vampirism--themes related to one of his most well-known movie adaptations, INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. The story here is of Kevin Thunder and Gerald Spain, two boys from very different families who mysteriously bear a striking resemblance. Jordan introduces Kevin, the principal narrator, at Gerald's funeral, and then Jordan slowly, suspensefully and evocatively reveals the two men's interconnected pasts. A supernatural breeze blows through this novel, as Kevin talks about the "vampire" who lived next door to him as a child, and Jordan maintains narrative tension by hinting at a traumatic event that changed the men's lives forever.
