Four people are killed by an IRA bomb in a Great Yarmouth Hotel in the mid-Eighties. Five years later an American academic sets out to test his theory that their deaths were not random but in some way pre-ordained. As he traces the chains of circumstance that brought together such a disparate group of people - a Russian-born yuppie, an impoverished Norfolk family who missed out on the Eighties boom and a Czech dissident film director - an intriguing and disturbing picture begins to emerge. It was a small bomb in a small hotel, but the conceptual canvas of REMEMBRANCE DAY is a large one. By turns comic and sad, in true Aldiss fashion, and operating on a deceptively domestic scale, its cameos of the nature of disaster reflect global concerns.
