Zusammen mit ihren drei quirligen Kids fahren Doug (David Tennant) und Abi (Rosamund Pike) in die schottischen Highlands, um den 75. Geburtstag von Dougs Vater Gordie (Billy Connolly) zu feiern. Nur ist dem eigensinnigen Schotten alles andere als zum Feiern zu Mute. Statt sich mit seinen ungleichen Söhnen und deren Eheproblemen in die turbulenten Geburtstagsvorbereitungen zu stürzen, verbringt Gordie den Tag lieber gemeinsam mit den Enkeln an seinem Lieblingsstrand. Und so glänzt ausgerechnet der Jubilar durch Abwesenheit, während nach und nach die schräge Verwandtschaft eintrifft. Was noch keiner der Gäste ahnt: Es wird der letzte Tag im Leben von Gordie McLeod… und einer seiner besten.

Why We Read Fiction offers a lucid overview of the most exciting area of research in contemporary cognitive psychology known as "Theory of Mind" and discusses its implications for literary studies. It covers a broad range of fictional narratives, from Richardson’s Clarissa, Dostoyevski’s Crime and Punishment, and Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, Nabokov’s Lolita, and Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon. Zunshine’s surprising new interpretations of well-known literary texts and popular cultural representations constantly prod her readers to rethink their own interest in fictional narrative. Written for a general audience, this study provides a jargon-free introduction to the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field known as cognitive approaches to literature and culture.
