Sarabande: A novel by Marcus Fedder, formerly of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Toronto Dominion Bank

From bust banks to bonkbuster


The financial and literary worlds make strong bedfellows. Both are replete with people with big egos and the ability to make things up. Strangely, though, very few bankers have made a big impression as authors.

Marcus Fedder, formerly of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Toronto Dominion Bank, is the latest to try his luck. Fedder has just released his first novel, Sarabande, which, according to a press release, "is a gripping love story in which the ties of family and homeland conflict with the desire to forge a new life and direction".

Set against a background of war, the script is written in a unique movie style "that makes the scenes easily visualized and plants the reader firmly in the forefront of the action".

The release concludes: "Marcus’s storytelling brings out important issues about the consequences of war in a time that is filled with wars that have ripped apart the Middle East." All well and good, except that the book is set in Sarajevo.

Still, after such a rousing sales pitch book stores are probably on red alert for extra copies.
