This summery rediscovered gem will make you nostalgic for 1940s seaside holidays: a Cornish hotel is mysteriously buried by a landslide, but what bought its eccentric guests together?'Tense, touching, human, dire, and funny, The Feast is a feast indeed.' Elizabeth Bowen Cornwall, Midsummer 1947.
Détails du produit
Kennedy, MargaretMargaret Kennedy was born in London in 1896 and read History at Somerville College, Oxford in 1915 (alongside Winifred Holtby and Vera Brittain) where she began writing. In 1924, Kennedy's second novel The Constant Nymph became a worldwide bestseller which she adapted into a hit West End play starring Noel Coward (three different star-studded film versions followed). Described as 'superb' by Elizabeth Bowen, Kennedy wrote fifteen further prize-winning novels including The Feast in 1950, as well as literary criticism and a biography of Jane Austen. She died in 1967.
Hilarious and perceptive, here's the perfect seaside holiday read ... Events leading up to the disaster are entertainingly revealed through the diaries, letters, thoughts and conversations of the inmates of the hotel. And what an intriguing bunch they are: obnoxious children, an arty writer and her toy boy, nutty priest . . . Snobs, slobs and the lovelorn. The nail-biting tension to discover who actually survived the tragedy will keep you on the very edge of your deckchair. Daily Mail
