Read full description of the books Hotel Majestic:1919: Após o final da I Guerra Mundial, o Major Brendan Archer dirige-se até à Irlanda, na esperança de descobrir se de facto está comprometido com Angela Spencer, cuja família anglo-irlandesa é proprietária do em tempos famoso Hotel Majestic. Mas a sua noiva está estranhamente diferente e a fortuna familiar sofrera enormes perdas. As centenas de quartos do hotel deterioram-se a olhos vistos; os seus poucos hóspedes dedicam-se quase em exclusivo a pequenos boatos e a jogos de uíste; bandos de gatos tomaram positivamente conta do Bar Imperial e dos andares superiores; canas de bambu ameaçam as fundações do edifício; leitões brincam nos courts de squash.
Mas não são apenas as paredes do outrora grandioso hotel que prometem cair de vez. Lá fora, o império britânico enfrenta desafios vindos dos quatro cantos do mundo, incluindo da sua vizinha Irlanda.
Read information about the authorJames Gordon Farrell, known as J.G. Farrell, was a Liverpool-born novelist of Irish descent. Farrell gained prominence for his historical fiction, most notably his Empire Trilogy (Troubles, The Siege of Krishnapur and The Singapore Grip), dealing with the political and human consequences of British colonial rule. The Siege of Krishnapur won the 1973 Booker Prize. On 19 May 2010 it was announced that Troubles had won the Lost Man Booker Prize, which was a prize created to recognize works published in 1970 (a group that had not previously been open for consideration due to a change in the eligibility rules at the time).
Farrell's career was cut short when he was drowned off the coast of Ireland at the age of 44.
