Actor Anthony Hopkins recounts a bizarre case of double coincidence. Several years ago when he heard he'd landed the leading role in a film based on the book _The Girl from Petrovka_ by George Feifer, he tried to get hold of a copy but couldn’t find one in any of London’s major bookstores. Waiting for a train at Leicester Square he thought he was hallucinating when he glanced at a discarded book lying on the bench beside him . . . The Girl from Petrovka. The coincidence didn't end there. On set in Vienna later that year Hopkins met the author, George Feifer, who lamented the fact that he no longer had the one and only annotated copy of his book as he'd lent it to a friend who’d lost it in London. Yes, the book Anthony had found was his.
