The Space Between Time Expected Publication Date: June 20th, 2019 Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Dark Comedy
About The BookThere are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth… Emma Maria Rossini appears to be the luckiest girl in the world. She’s the daughter of a beautiful and loving mother, and her father is one of the most famous film actors of his generation. She’s also the granddaughter of a rather eccentric and obscure Italian astrophysicist. But as her seemingly charmed life begins to unravel, and Emma experiences love and tragedy, she ultimately finds solace in her once-derided grandfather’s Theorem on the universe. The Space Between Time is humorous and poignant and offers the metaphor that we are all connected, even to those we have loved and not quite lost.

I found Charlie Laidlaw’s book, The Space Between Time, completely mesmerising and really very good.
When I was first given the opportunity to read this novel of contemporary fiction/dark comedy, it was the front cover that swayed me to be honest, as I was in two minds. But I must not take anything away from this wonderful story. Charlie Laidlaw had me totally captivated as issues surrounding suicide, depression and anxiety were all brought to the fore.
Although this was at times, quite a heavy and challenging read, there was also a lightness about it, along with plenty of humour, to lighten the mood.
I loved reading all about Emma, the main protagonist, and her journey which was special because of its poignancy.
I highly recommend this heartbreaking and very unique novel and I intend to read more from this newly discovered author, Charlie Laidlaw.
Brianne’s Book Reviews Rating | Five Stars
🖤 🖤 🖤 🖤 🖤About the Author I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault. That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father. That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste. I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything. I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist. I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics. I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece. I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries. Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa. What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then. However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini. Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa. I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.
