Night Over Water is a politically-minded novel written by author Ken Follett and published by William Morrow in 1991. It was reprinted as a paperback book in the U.S. in 1992. Night Over Water is a fictionalized account of the final flight of the Pan American Clipper passenger airplane during the first few days of World War II, early September, 1939. Follett is careful to state that, though the flight and all of the characters are fictional the plane, a Boeing 314, was real and was nicknamed the "Pan Am Clipper." It was a seaplane, an aircraft that landed in the sea, not on an airstrip, powered by 4 propeller engines. It was capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean in little more than 24 hours with intermediate stops in Shannon Estuary at Foynes, Ireland, Bay of Exploits at Botwood, Newfoundland and Shediac Bay, Canada, at each of which stop Follett adds a scene or two of intrigue. This route made the Pan Am Clipper the fastest mode of transatlantic travel at the time — and very appealing to those who wanted to escape from Britain before the start of the war.

Ken Follett - British writer (Welsh). Reprinted as Martin Martinsen, Simon Myles, Bernard L.

Ross, Zachary Stone. Born July 5, 1949 in the Welsh city of Cardiff in the family of a tax inspector. In post-war England, the Follets had a very hard life, as, indeed, many other British people. As a child, Ken Follett was deprived of such joys as TV or cinema, so his rich imagination looked for a way out in books. When he was 10 years old, the family moved to London. There, at the age of 18, he entered the university, where he studied philosophy. At university, he became interested in politics, joining the Labor Party, acquired his wife Mary, and in July 1968 - a son. In 1970 he graduated from university and courses in journalism, returned to Wales, where he got a job in the newspaper "South Wales Echo". In 1973 he returned to London and worked for the Evening News. At the same time, a second child is born in the Follet family, this time a daughter. Over time, working in the newspaper ceases to be enjoyable. Follett begins writing books. However, for several years this is nothing more than a hobby; books cannot yet bring significant income. And only in 1978 his first real bestseller "The Eye of the Needle" was published about the work of British counterintelligence during the Second World War. In 1979, the novel won the Edgar Poe Prize ( Edgar Awards ). The novel was a great success and was filmed, and Follett becomes a famous writer. The royalties allowed Ken and Mary Follett to rent a villa near Nice in 1979, where they lived for three years. Returning from France, Ken Follet meets fellow party worker Barbara Broer. The acquaintance turns out to be fatal - Follet leaves his family. In 1984 he marries Broer. Follett successfully combines his writing career with active work in the Labor Party. His novels are a steady success - since 1978, he has written a dozen bestsellers, some of which have been filmed. On July 11, 2008, he received an honorary LLD (Doctor of Law) from the University of Exeter. In his latest novel, "World Without End" (2007), Follett vividly described the Catholic cathedral "Catedral gótica de Santa María" in the Spanish city of Vitoria. As a sign of gratitude for the huge influx of tourists, the city authorities erected a monument to him on the square near the cathedral. Brothers Ridley and Tony Scott, with the support of Tandem Communications, together with "Muse Entertainment" filmed the mini-series of the same name based on the book "Pillars of the Earth" (The Pillars of the Earth, 1989). The premiere took place on July 23, 2010 on the Starz TV channel. Based on materials from the sites http://spymania.narod.ru/, http://mysuli.aldebaran.ru/authors/follet/.  Ken Follett`s Official Site .  Interview "Book Review" Ken Follett official website - http://www.ken-follett.com/ ...  Bibliography Series Apples Carstairs (writing as Simon Myles ) 1974 - 1.
