Description of "Killing A Mouse On Sunday"

Our respect for the law is tempered-sometimes-by our admiration for those who successfully break it. Outlaws, bandits, escaping prisoners-we can't help being on their side, at any rate on paper at a safe distance in a novel. In Emeric Pressburger's story our judgement can easily be suspended, but although entertained and excited we are not left with the feeling that we have Our respect for the law is tempered-sometimes-by our admiration for those who successfully break it.

Outlaws, bandits, escaping prisoners-we can't help being on their side, at any rate on paper at a safe distance in a novel. In Emeric Pressburger's story our judgement can easily be suspended, but although entertained and excited we are not left with the feeling that we have been tricked into condoning crime. Questions of religion, of conscience, of love, of loyalty, even of justive, with things the law can take mo account of- these are at the back of a story where comedy comingles with tragedy in the high pyrenees.

Who was in the right we may never be able to decide. Only one thing is sure: this is a highly original novel, with the elements of a thriller, the romance of banditry in the mountains, the comedy of authority set at defiance, the undercurrent of ancient wrongs and of more recent political rancour. (Daniel George in the 'Broadsheet')

About Author

Educated at the Universities of Prague and Stuttgart, Emeric Pressburger worked as a journalist in Hungary and Germany and an author and scriptwriter in Berlin and Paris. He was a Hungarian Jew, chased around Europe (he worked on films for UFA in Berlin and Paris) before World War II, finally finding sanctuary in London - but as a scriptwriter who didn't speak English. So he taught himself to understand not only the finer nuances of the language but also of the British people.

A few lucky breaks and introductions via old friends led to his meeting with "renegade" director Michael Powell. They then went on to make some of the most interesting and complex films of the 1940s and 1950s under the banner of "The Archers". Pressburger often showed a deep understanding of the British only granted to those "outside, looking in".

He always prided himself on being "more English than the English". After all, some of us were just BORN English, but he CHOSE to become English. He spent his last days at Shoemakers Cottage, Aspall, Stowmarket, Suffolk in the English countryside that he loved so well.
