- Margaret Kennedy’s forgotten novel, originally published in 1950, takes place in the aftermath of a natural disaster: in a postwar Cornwall, England, the crumbling Pendizack Manor Hotel has been leveled by a landslide, burying several of the hotel’s inhabitants in the rubble. Through conversations, diary entries, letters, and personal accounts, the events of the week leading up to the disaster are pieced together. Staff and guests alike play host to a colorful cast of characters, serving as the personification for the seven deadly sins.
- A witty and comical take in the beloved Upstairs/Downstairs vein, this novel has a moral tale at its heart, a vibrant reimagining in the tradition of Pilgrim’s Progress. This book has been rediscovered for the twenty-first century reader with a delightful new cover by McNally Editions. Multiples available.
