It's the balmy days of the 1920s and where could be more pleasant for a holiday than a hotel on the Italian Riviera?
Filled with prosperous English visitors, the Hotel offers a closed world of wealth and comfort.
It also provides the stage for the display of social niceties, for passionate but unspoken love affairs and for the comedy of the shared bathroom.
With great wit and insight Elizabeth Bowen's first novel lays bare the intricacies and eccentricities of polite society.
