The Stonehenge Letters free pdf A remarkable new novel from the Wellcome Trust longlisted author. While digging through the Nobel Archives in Stockholm, trying to figure out why his hero, Sigmund Freud, never received a Nobel Prize, a psychiatrist makes an unusual discovery. Among the unsolicited self-nominations in the museum's 'Crackpot' file there are six letters addressed to Mr Ragnar Sohlman, executor of Alfred Nobel's will. Remarkably, all but one has been written by a Nobel laureate - including Rudyard Kipling, Ivan Pavlov, Teddy Roosevelt and Marie Curie. Each letter attempts to explain why and how Stonehenge was constructed. Diligent research eventually uncovers that Alfred Nobel, intrigued by a young woman's obsession with the mysterious landmark, added a secret codicil to his will: A prize - reserved exclusively for Nobel laureates - was to be awarded to the person who can solve the mystery of Stonehenge. Weaving together a wealth of primary documents - photos, letters, wills - The Stonehenge Letters is a wryly documented archive of a fascinating covert competition, complete with strange but illuminating submissions and a contentious prize-awarding process. But is this fact or is this fiction?
